England’s Yannick Bahati ahead of fight with Michiel Opperman

Johannesburg, South Africa – Yannick ‘Black Mamba’ Bahati’s main event opponent might have changed, but his outspoken nature hasn’t. Yesterday evening Bahati sent a clear message over social media of his intentions to his EFC 53 main event opponent, South Africa’s Michiel Opperman.

“I will rip that soft body of his, then take his head off,” stated the middleweight champion Bahati.

One thing is for sure, Bahati is coming to lead the United Kingdom charge and stamp his authority on the organisation.

This fight takes place as the main event at EFC 53: UK vs RSA at Carnival City ahead of a stacked main card that sees the United Kingdom’s best take on South Africa’s best.

EFC 53: Bahati vs Opperman, presented by SUPABETS, and takes place on Friday 2 September 2016 at Carnival City, Johannesburg.
