Free Fight: Hawkey VS. Cleland

Ahead of Soldierboy vs. Cleland, EFC AFRICA 20

Johannesburg (South Africa) – Controversial submission’s specialist Liam Cleland faces Africa MMA phenomenon Garreth ‘Soldierboy’ McLellan at EFC AFRICA 20.

Cleland is known for his hot and cold showings in the Hexagon, on his night capable of devastating striking and grappling technique. ‘Soldierboy’ himself has referred to Cleland as a threat capable of beating the champion.

Today EFC AFRICA releases Cleland’s most recent fight, his GnP destruction of Donavin Hawkey at EFC AFRICA 17. Many have suggested that Cleland’s ground skill will simply be too much for McLellan. Will it?
