Johannesburg, South Africa – The second season of The Fighter (TF2) is currently in production, with the 10 contestants living together in the penthouse at The Capital On Bath in Rosebank, as they compete against each other, fighting their way into the final.
As the home for the contestants during the many weeks of filming, and the place where they rest, recover and socialize after training and competing, The Capital On Bath, with its trendy and well equipped 5-bedroom penthouse (with hotel facilities and amenities), is ideal.
As a long-time EFC partner, The Capital Hotels and Apartments has hosted the EFC athletes and team at properties in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban, and has been showcased across the EFC platforms. As the home for TF2 the partnership goes to new heights, with The Capital On Bath featuring prominently throughout the hit TV series.
In addition to the TF2 contestants living in the penthouse, members of the TF2 production crew are also living at The Capital On Bath for the duration of filming, allowing for unparalleled access and the long hours of filming, and capturing the best possible content for the series.
“The Capital On Bath is a beautifully appointed, perfectly located, and has everything that the contestants and crew need,” stated EFC President Cairo Howarth. “The TF2 schedule is hectic and the athletes and crew require proper rest. The Capital On Bath is ideal, making their stay comfortable and hassle free, and allowing them to perform at their best.”
“We’re thrilled to host not only the second season of this exciting show, but also the world class female athletes and crew at our apartment hotel,” stated Garnet Basson, Chief Operations Officer for The Capital.
The Fighter season 2 (TF2) pits 10 of the best female flyweight MMA prospects in the world against each other. Sequestered in a penthouse at The Capital in Rosebank, Johannesburg, there they will live together, train together, and compete against each other for the ultimate prize: a six-figure contract and a guaranteed shot at the EFC women’s flyweight title.
EFC superstars Garreth McLellan and Brendan Lesar will clash, as they take the reins as rival coaches in the series. Over the 10 episodes they will prepare their hand-picked teams to compete against each other in a series of elimination fights, and ultimately face each other in the grand finale with the interim EFC middleweight title on the line.
TF2 debuts on global TV on Friday 1 March, with a new hour-long episode released each week thereafter. The series builds to the live grand finale on 4 May, taking place at the home of African MMA, Carnival City.
