Ceronio has declared that heavyweight is where he will be stationed from now on, and is rearing to test the freedom of his natural weight class.
Featherweights Francois Groenewald and Gareth Buirski face off in a bout that for G. Buirski is an opportunity to crunch himself back into the upper levels of the division. F. Groenewald comes off of two submission wins, against Jean-Luc Kazadi and Koba Iakobidze. G. Buirski is known as a powerful grappler who also possesses a monster overhand right. Where will F. Groenewald want to take G. Buirski on?
David Buirski will face Cape Town based Nicolas Radley in Radley’s second appearance in the Hexagon. Radley is a Muay Thai specialist while D. Buirski is known for his powerful clinch work and strong takedowns. Expect pin point strikes from Radley as he will look to grind D. Buirski down.
Mohamed Karim, Egypt’s sledge hammer striker, experienced a trial by fire in his debut loss to heavyweight champion Andew van Zyl at EFC AFRICA 15. July 25 offers him the chance to re-enter Africa’s heaviest division on his own terms. Mbuyi, a Congo born Judo black belt makes his Hexagon debut and will be looking to smash his way into EFC AFRICA notoriety.
