EFC AFRICA – Extreme Fighting Championship – ‘Herculeez’ Baits ‘The Lion’

Johannesburg (South Africa) - Yesterday it was announced that Henry ‘Herculeez’ Fadipe, the Nigerian born Irishman, will face welterweight champion Dino ‘The Lion’ Bagattin for his belt on May 01.

Along with the announcement Bagattin put out a video, saying “he [Fadipe] is coming into the Lion’s den, when I’m finished with him he won’t be coming back to Africa.”

It didn’t take long for Fadipe to respond, first changing his Twitter profile picture to one of a lion sporting a black eye [above], then posting a comment of his own:
