Sun City, South Africa – Johannesburg’s Mthobisi ‘Grimreaper’ Buthelezi made headlines earlier this month when he won his prelim bout in a clinical fashion, showing vast improvements in his ground game to compliment his exceptional striking. Buthelezi now returns at EFC 50 to make it two in row, but this time his ground skills are sure to be tested further by the likes of Cape Town’s Luke Michael.

The young Michael made a picture perfect start to his professional career, getting two early finishes in a row. He then suffered back-to-back losses to contenders Sibusiso Mdoko and Kaleka Kabanda. With a change of camps since the losses, the ground specialist, Michael, vows to return to form and be better than ever.

This exciting bouts take place on the prelim card ahead of the five main card fights, live and exclusive at Sun City.

EFC 50: du Plessis vs. van Staden takes place on Friday 17 June at Sun City in North West Province. Tickets available soon at www.computicket.com, all the main card bouts will be broadcast live on www.kwesesports.com starting 20:00 (CAT) and delayed live on e.tv after the 20:30 (CAT) movie.
