Johannesburg (South Africa) – Every event EFC AFRICA offers a prize for the top three most vocal gyms in supporting their athletes on the night. The competition was begun at EFC AFRICA 19 and since then gyms have climbed in with massive support for their boys. AT EFC AFRICA 20 Don Madge’s ManBeast crew arrived in matching white hoodies to cheer their hero on, while FFM had Soldierboy and Costa Ioannou masks printed to wear on the night.

The competition is run over both weigh-in and fight night itself, with EFC AFRICA president Cairo Howarth announcing winners at the press conference thirty minutes after the main event.

Yesterday’s weigh-in yielded two main players in the EFC AFRICA 21 competition with support for the Angolan wrecking machine Bernardo Mikixi (Smith’s Gym) raising the roof and FFM in close second with their athletes undefeated featherweight champion Demarte Pena and Boyd Allen. At present third place is looking like a tight race between Vandam Mbuyi’s Godfather MMA, World of Warriors’ Buirski brothers (Gareth and David) and Lourens Botes’ Trinity MMA, all the way from Nelspruit.

The fierce competition has yielded the following results in the past:

EFC AFRICA 19: Team CIT (1st), FFM (2nd), Smith’s Gym (3rd).
EFC AFRICA 20: FFM (1st), PFA (2nd), Team CIT (3rd).

The winning gym stands to win a merchandise hamper to the value of R5000, second and third place a hamper of R3000 and R2000 respectively.
