Dustin Jacoby, who competed in the UFC, stepped in on short notice and won the recent Road to Glory USA title by winning three matches in one night.
Jacoby, competing at light heavyweight (209 pounds), was called just 48 hours before the event began and took the place of Manuel Quezada. He went on to defeat Randy Blake, Roy Boughton and Brian Collette, earning a one-year contract with the promotion and the $20,000 grand prize.
Jacoby lost both of his UFC fights, falling to Clifford Starks and Chris Camozzi. The appearance in Glory was his first time competing in kickboxing, and he won all three matches by TKO, including the final two in the first round.
