The sporting world prepares for EFC 100

Johannesburg, South Africa – With an action-packed card locked and loaded for the 1st of December, EFC can now reveal a fight week schedule worthy of the landmark EFC 100 event. As Champion Nicholas Hwende defends his 135lb title against the incredible Nkazimulo Zulu and natural-born finisher Cole Henning battles the undefeated Tshilumba Mikixi for the interim lightweight belt, 18 other warriors will enter the Hexagon and go to war in an unprecedented celebration of a truly remarkable milestone.  

Filling out a momentous main card is Stephan de la Rey throwing down with knock-out artist Billy Oosthuizen in a possible fight of the night, rising bantamweight star Shannon van Tonder will have to contend with the dangerous Musa Sethwape whilst the gritty August Kayambala will face the electrifying Nerik Simoes. The preliminary bouts are equally enthralling as some of the most beloved athletes to have graced the EFC arena give everything on the biggest stage of their careers. 

Brazilian jiu-jitsu wizard Jailson Sousa clashes with fan-favourite veteran Pietie Coxen in a classic mashup of combat styles in the featured prelim bout, tactical combat master JC Lamprecht will face the gargantuan Willem Smith in an explosive light-heavyweight scrap, tough-as-nails Martin Gcinumkhondo will have his hands full against the massive prospect of Terence Balelo, the die-hard eclectic Sizwe Mnikhathi is back in action against a head-hunting Robert Swanepoel, swift-footed Boyd Allen prodigy Luke Hendrikz will take on an equally-determined Godknows Ndlovu on an undercard that would be a main card at any event for any promotion in the world today as a fitting celebration of EFC’s glorious past, present and exciting future.
