RvR is one of the few kickboxers who actually makes 6 figures just from kickboxing, which leads many to assume this talk is just to help him negotiate a better contract. On the other hand he is a judo black belt and has been training MMA for years now and has 2 or 3 fights in small promotions. Its tough to tell what he actually wants to do in the future. He is the only double champ in Glory history and he has recently been talking about going up to WW to get a third belt.

- Maybe he wants a bigger plataform? Does Glory atracts as many eyes as K1 did in the 90s?

Not sure about the 90s but definitely not as popular as K-1 in the days of Masato. Maybe he is looking for more international fame, maybe he will use MMA as a way to get more MMA fans to watch him kickbox in the future.
