Back To The Dome
For the final and biggest event of the year
16 October 2013
Johannesburg (South Africa) - EFC AFRICA 26, Van Zyl vs. Potts 3, is the organisation’s first trilogy bout, a massive occurrence as former heavyweight champion Ruan ‘Fangzz’ Potts clashes with current champion Andrew ‘One Gear’ van Zyl for the continent’s biggest strap.
On Thursday, December 12, EFC AFRICA returns to the Coca Cola dome for 2013’s biggest MMA event, and a fitting end to a monumental year.
“We wanted to end the year off with a big event, and a heavyweight title, in the biggest arena on the continent, is the best way to do it,” said Cairo Howarth, EFC AFRICA president.
In their first meeting Potts dismantled Van Zyl with a guillotine in the first round. In their second Van Zyl thrilled the world with a dazzling five rounds that nearly broke both men, and netted him the belt.
To further add to the drama both Van Zyl and Potts have only lost once, to each other. EFC AFRICA 26 is the final separator between the two.
“The return to the Dome is also the perfect preparation to a year that will see even more innovation than was experienced in 2013,” said Howarth.
