Johannesburg, South Africa – Featuring MMA stars from around the world, a night of epic proportions awaits as EFC returns to Carnival City in Johannesburg on 3 October, with three title fights headlining the massive fight card.
In the heavyweight division and in what EFC pundits are calling the heavyweight matchup of the century, the champion Andrew van Zyl, from South Africa collides with the Frenchman Cyril Asker in a 5 round championship battle.
Plus, the dominant South African Boyd Allen puts his featherweight belt on the line against Scotland’s Danny Henry in what is sure to be a technical war of sniper like accurate striking. The fate of opposing but seemingly similar fighters from contrasting backgrounds will intercept and only the champions will stand victorious. Europe or Africa, where does your allegiance lie?
But first, the man from Zimbabwe, Themba `The Answer` Gorimbo, who came from nothing and has risen to stardom, faces his nemesis and perhaps the most dangerous striker in the organisation, the lightweight champion Leon `Iron Lion` Mynhardt.
Undefeated in competition, and driven by a raw desire to survive, `The Answer` will stop at nothing when he faces the brute power, skill and experience of Pretoria`s favourite son, the `Iron Lion`.
Three massive title fights in one night!
But that’s not all, during an extended break between the EFC prelim bouts and the main 5 headline fights, fans can watch the rugby game between South Africa and Scotland at Carnival City`s purpose-built Rugby Fan Park for FREE.
