Johannesburg (South Africa) – EFC AFRICA 14, Africa’s biggest mixed martial arts show, is just hours away!
Three athletes failed to make weight as yesterday’s weigh-in but all 13 bouts will go ahead! For coming in 4kg over weight, Danie van Heerden forfeited 55% of his fight purse to opponent Garreth McLellan. In addition, EFC AFRICA made it clear that in the event van Heerden he is victorious tonight he will not get an instant title shot against EFC AFRICA middleweight champion Jeremy Smith, but instead have to face another opponent and win that bout too before a title shot.
For coming in 4kg over weight, Alex Cheboub forfeited 25% of his fight purse to opponent Ashley Calvert. After negotiating with Calvert, it was agreed that the bout would proceed as long as Cheboub did not weigh over 77kg on fight night.
For coming in 1kg over weight, Denzil Wait forfeited 25% of his fight purse to opponent Wentzel Nel.
