A highly-respected wrestler in his home country of Senegal, Adama Diop is a veteran of 93 bouts within the sandbag arena and has now made a smooth transition to MMA by adding a variety of skills to his already fearsome grappling by training at Bokk Jiu-Jitsu and Scorpion kickboxing. He faces a veteran of the EFC 265lb division in fellow West African, Nico Yamdjie. ‘The Lion’ thrilled fight fans with a back-and-forth war with Sholto Luiters and showed the speed and power of a true contender when he took the victory by first-round TKO. As a forewarning to the debutante, Yamdjie has faced a Senegalese opponent in the Hexagon before in Papa Ndour, and again took a first-round TKO victory. With 11 wars in the EFC, Yamdjie is primed to welcome Diop in the most violent fashion, though ‘Blindé’ has the pedigree, training and intent to cause a massive upset!
EFC 99, Kabesa vs Swanepoel for the EFC Featherweight Championship, presented by World Sports Betting, takes place on Thursday, 03 November 2022 live from the EFC Performance Institute in JHB, South Africa.
