Johannesburg, South Africa – The EFC 92 ceremonial weigh-ins took place on Friday morning at the EFC Performance Institute in Johannesburg ahead of the first event of the 2022 African MMA season. All fighters were determined as ever to enter the Hex as tensions ran high with athletes coming face-to-face with their opponents for the first time.
With the Middleweight title on the line between former team-mates Luke ‘Young Gun’ Michael from South Africa and Pupanga ‘Fireboy’ Tresor from the DRC, both fighters refused to back down in a tense display of confidence, only one of whom will walk away with gold in 24 hours time.
The 12-fight card remained intact as all fighters passed their medical examinations and all but one of the athletes made weight.
