Official EFC 114 Weigh-ins – BRUSSLES BRAWLER BATTLES PANTHER POWER HOUSE

Tensions blew the roof off the newly-christened World Sports Betting Arena as athletes took to the scales for the highly-anticipated EFC 114 weigh-ins. With Tumelo Manyamala out due to a knee injury, a European flyweight champion, Liridon Ramani steps up to face Terence ‘The Black Panther’ Balelo, who looked in peak physical form and ready to take on the Belgian challenger in order to claim interim gold in the main event. Both contenders made weight and wasted little time in their war of words before being physically separated by Night Guard Security.

The EFC matchmakers have outdone themselves yet again, curating a guaranteed action-packed fight card that showcases the cream of African MMA. Seven preliminary bouts feature a thrilling headline clash between Kenya’s Felista Mugo and Cape Town’s Aneesha Mayman, both of whom exhibited grace and sportsmanship at the scale, in stark contrast to the intensity that awaits them in the hexagon tomorrow night.

One of the main card attractions is the featherweight grand prix, which finally nears its dramatic climax as Ayanda Zwane and Simbarashe Hokonya also had to be separated at the scale after an intense scuffle, before they vie for the chance tomorrow night to challenge the newly crowned double champion, Igeu Kabesa for the belt. With 24 athletes and 12 fights on the card, EFC 114 promises to deliver non-stop action and determine the next contenders in an increasingly competitive EFC landscape. The stage is now set for a night of high-drama and fisticuff fireworks at EFC 114, and today’s explosive weigh-ins have only added to the anticipation!.
