Former EFC Bantamweight Champion, Sindile Manengela makes his long awaited return to the Hex this April. Training out of PESFA, the highly-skilled Judoka trains under the tutelage of Chris Bright with the likes of current EFC Flyweight Champion, Luthando Biko, and many other rising championship prospects. ‘The Ghost’ knows the feeling of being at the top and, with the new year, shifts his focus to claiming a shot at the 135lb gold he once had. Manengela is ready to prove why he is to be respected in the promotion and kickstart his campaign back to the top with this fight.

Considered the fighting pride of Angola, Eduardo Barros has an agenda of his own as he has his first fight of the year. The Luanda-born fighter never shys away from showing off his impressive kickboxing background, which he hones at the Njila Fight Club back home. Slowly but surely climbing up the divisional rankings over his tenure in the EFC, Barros hopes to place himself in the prime position for a championship opportunity that might come knocking, and this fight serves as a crucial step to achieving that.
