Africa’s Greatest Warriors: Naumann VS. Jakobi

Johannesburg (South Africa) – In only 10 days EFC AFRICA’s fastest rising star, Frederich ‘The Ninja’ Naumann, faces brutal former welterweight champion Dallas Jakobi in a massive lightweight bout.

“Naumann is the only guy in EFC AFRICA history to get back to back submission of the night victories,” says EFC AFRICA president Cairo Howarth of the up and coming athlete.

With his unorthodox submission skills and always in your face standup, Naumann is one of the most dangerous athletes on the African continent.

After dropping a weight class Dallas Jakobi is looking to make another run for the title in the highly skilled lightweight division. Known for his brutal headkicks and vicious ground and pound, Jakobi is undoubtedly the toughest man Naumann has yet faced.

“Dallas Jakobi is a former champion and an absolute veteran of the Hexagon. He’s competed in over three divisions.” Says Dirk Steenekamp, Fighters Only SA Magazine’s Editor in Chief, of the Durban athlete. “He was known as one of the strongest welterweights, and now he is unleashing that power on the lightweight division.”

At EFC AFRICA 22, August 15, will The Ninja be able to stand up to the experience and all round power of Jakobi, or will the powerful veteran take all?

EFC AFRICA 22, presented by MusclePharm, takes place at the Carnival City Big Top Arena on 15 August 2013. Tickets on sale now at Tickets for the live broadcast to Nu Metro Cinemas available now at
