Lubbe VS. Diesel

Promo out now

Johannesburg (South Africa) – At EFC AFRICA 20 reinvented Juan ‘Legacy’ Lubbe faces the legendary Neil ‘The Original’ Diesel in a make or break welterweight battle.

Lubbe re-entered the Hexagon after a two year layoff at EFC AFRICA 18 and destroyed David van Schalkwyk in a one round, one sided outpouring of aggression. Diesel is one of African MMA’s most legendary personalities, out of action since EFC AFRICA 08 but still spoken of as one of the most talented pound for pound fighters the continent has seen.

‘Legacy’ has called ‘The Original’ out on numerous fronts, suggesting his reputation is overrated and questioning whether he will pitch up to fight. Diesel has responded with no response at all, instead taking himself off of the social media grid and assuring fans he will do his talking on fight night.

On June 27 both meet in a career defining battle. Who will survive this encounter, reputation intact, and go on to climb the welterweight ranks?

EFC AFRICA 20, presented by MusclePharm, takes place at the Carnival City Big Top Arena on 27 June 2013. Tickets on sale now at Tickets for the live broadcast to Nu Metro Cinemas available soon at
