Bagattin breaks silence after stepping up to ‘save the show’


Johannesburg, South Africa – A week after receiving confirmation that Conrad Seabi had been forced out of his match-up with Luke Michael and Dino Bagattin would step into the main event at EFC 87, Dino ‘The Lion’ dropped a message to the ‘Young Gun’ Michael in a recent interview.


When asked his thoughts on his new opponent, Dino Bagattin didn’t hesitate to respond.


“You can tell that little c@#ksucker that I’m the odds favourite for a reason. This fight is bigger than him and Seabi. Once again Dino ‘The Lion’ steps up to save the show.” He concluded with, “Luke is a boring fighter, we know he is going to shoot, we know he is going to try lay all over me, but when it doesn’t work he is going to be eating leather and elbows”.


EFC has yet to get a response from Michael who is gunning for the number one middleweight contender spot, but in previous interviews he made it clear that he didn’t think Bagattin was much of a threat to his career goals.


With two very confident athletes entering the Hexagon on 3 July and another 10 bouts on the card, African MMA fans are in for an exciting night of MMA action.
