Johannesburg, South Africa – Long-time EFC partner and massive supporter of combat sports, Rex Diff & Gearbox (RDG), returns as a driving force behind The Fighter Season 2 (TF2). RDG will be featured prominently throughout the series on branded team vehicles, in the Hexagon and in an intense RDG tug-of-war challenge in one of the action-packed episodes.


“We are privileged to have such a long-standing partnership with RDG, the absolute leaders in their field and a brand and team that is driven by perfection,” stated EFC President Cairo Howarth. “This partnership with TF2 boosts RDG to a larger audience than ever before.”


“The Rex Diff and Gearbox Company is looking forward to taking a more prominent role in supporting the second season of The Fighter,” said RDG director Rick Rex. “Mixed Martial Arts fighters are complex, precise, and durable, just like the gearboxes we rebuild every day. RDG wishes these women and their trainers good luck in pursuit of the coveted EFC Women’s Flyweight title.”


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 26 April, with a new hour-long episode released each week thereafter. The series builds to the live grand finale on 29 June, taking place at the home of African MMA, Carnival City.
