Glory kickboxing returned to the scene Saturday with a wild main event as Poland's Arkadiusz Wrzosek pulled off a miracle head kick knockout of Badr Hari in the 2nd round of their heavyweight contest from the Netherlands. Long a top fighter in the heavyweight ranks, Hari came out winging power shots from the start slipping to the canvas in the opening seconds after missing with a haymaker right hand.

Undeterred, he dropped Wrzosek twice in the first round with body punches, then followed up in the second with a hard roundhouse kick that had Wrzosek down again. The Polish fighter rose shaking his right arm as if it was injured and looked on the verge of being stopped. But as Hari moved in for the kill, Wrzosek threw up a last ditch roundhouse kick that caught Hari high on the head and felled him. Hari was unable to beat the count as Wrzosek pulled off the incredible comeback win.

The co-main event saw Alex Pereira, drop his light heavyweight title in a decision to Artem Vakhitov in Pereira's last fight for the Glory promotion. He's expected to move to mixed martial arts and sign with the UFC.
