On 7 November EFC returns to sunny Cape Town for a battle of light heavyweights to determine the next contender to face reigning champion Norman ‘Chef’ Wessels.

Headlining the massive event sees the former champion Gideon ‘Juggernaut’ Drotschie take on DRC’s powerhouse Champion Dalcha. Both men have only ever lost to one man, Wessels. Drotschie is in hot pursuit of a rematch to avenge his controversial loss and is only one step away from his goals, but standing in his way is Dalcha, with a new team behind him, built specifically for the former contender. Also the race for the much desired light heavyweight contendership sees former heavyweight champ Ruan ‘Fangzz’ Potts make his divisional debut against the hardest hitter in the organization, Tumelo ‘The Truck’ Maphutha. Plus former heavyweight champion Brendon Groenewald faces the Polish giant Tomasz ‘Kredka’ Kowalkowski.

The countdown to EFC 45 begins tonight! Find out what is motivating these exceptional athletes to climb to the top of their divisions and what drives them to the top.
