Originally scheduled to face each other at EFC 61 in Sun City, Bagattin suffered a concussion in the lead up and had to withdraw, prompting Mukulu’s letter below:
Don’t go getting knocked-out in training again. It was only a few days to go to fight night that you withdrew last time, leaving me without an opponent. I know you are scared, but please don’t run away again. I promise you won’t even feel a thing when I knock you out on fight night.”
This fight takes place on the five-fight main card main card at EFC Cape Town: Contenders Rising.
