GLORY 82 took place on November 19 at the Maritim Hotel Bonn in Bonn, Germany.

In the main event, Antonio Plazibat defeated Raul Catinas by knockout in the first round, solidifying his status as the top heavyweight contender. It was a contender for the most vicious knockout of the year, with the Romanian fighter crashing unconscious to the canvas after Plazibat assaulted him with a variety of heavy hooks to the head and body. 

In the co-main event, Endy Semeleer defeated Alim Nabiyev by split decision and claimed the vacant GLORY Welterweight Championship. The Dutch fighter struggled with the unorthodox style and rhythm of Nabiyev in the first two rounds, but came back stronger in the later rounds. Not quite enough in the eyes of many fans, who had Nabiyev ahead after five rounds. Nonetheless, a great performance by the former three-weight Enfusion champion, who crowns his still-young career with the GLORY title.
