GLORY WATSON: Ready for two title belts



Glory Watson is set to battle Caree Hill (4 – 1) on June 22, 2019 in Lewiston, Maine at New England Fights 39 ‘All American’.  She has compiled an undefeated (4 – 0) record as an amateur and has gained the nickname “The Fury”.  Glory Watson fights out of Maine and trains under Young’s MMA.  She is aggressive and has demonstrated heavy hands in the cage.  Two of Watson’s four wins have come by way of submission finish.


Glory made her amateur MMA debut in June of 2018 with a first round finish victory over Chelsea Tucker via arm-bar triangle submission.  One year later Glory “The Fury” Watson is set to fight for the NEF amateur flyweight title and the QUEEN MMA Fighting Championships amateur flyweight title.  The twenty-four year old has put in a lot of hard work in just one short year.  She has become popular on the local level and will have the hometown crowd in her corner.  It is a fighter’s dream to fight for a title in front of the hometown fans and on June 22nd Glory will have the opportunity to fight for two belts.

QUEEN MMA Media caught up with amateur flyweight Glory Watson before her upcoming title match against Caree Hill.

QUEEN MMA MEDIA – Do you see the upcoming match up against Hill as possibly being the biggest challenge of your amateur career?  If so why?

GLORY WATSON“This fight is going to be a challenge, but each and every one of my opponents has presented a challenge of their own.  I can’t say if it is going to be more of a challenge than my other fights because I have yet to see what Caree is bringing to the table.  I look forward to seeing her style and analyzing the challenge she will present.”  

QUEEN MMA MEDIA – “How is fight camp going?”

GLORY WATSON“Fight camp is going very well.  This camp has been my most challenging to date.  We have brought in a team of really great people to help me with different aspects of my fight game.  I have had amazing training partners, a phenomenal coaching staff, and some incredible supporting friends and family.”

QUEEN MMA MEDIA – “Do you see this match up being settled on the feet or on the ground?”

GLORY WATSON“With a skilled opponent like Caree Hill, there is no telling where the fight is going to go.  The name of the game is being able to read your opponent in the moment and use the skills you have acquired to dictate where the fight will go.  If we stand or hit the ground, there will be an opportunity to grow as a fighter.”

QUEEN MMA MEDIA – “There will be two titles on the line.  How do you think you will feel walking away with two title belts – The NEF amateur flyweight title and the Queen MMA Fighting Championships title?

GLORY WATSON“Winning two belts would be a great accomplishment, but as a fighter, all I can ask for is a good performance and growth in my sport.  Win or lose, I will showcase what all of my time and energy has been working toward.”

QUEEN MMA MEDIA – “How do you see the fight playing out?”

GLORY WATSON – “It is always hard to know which direction a fight will go.  Each of us step into the cage wanting to be better than we were yesterday.  Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.  Either way the fight turns I plan to get better every fight!
