With just a month to go, EFC Bantamweight Champion Nicholas Hwende remains hard at training, fuelled by the burning desire to step back into the Hex whilst challenger, Nkazimulo Zulu, settles into his new home at Team CIT. The dominant team serves as the training ground for JT ‘Blade’ Botha, who is ready to make his long-awaited return to the cage. EFC’s latest Senegalese import, Adama ‘Blindé’ Diop touches down in the country and makes himself at home at The Capital. Rob ‘The Black Tiger’ Simbowe tops off his workout with a coffee run. The east coast provides a glimpse into the motivated and undeterred Swanepoel camp whilst the west coast sends off Nico ‘The Lion’ Yamdjie and Kaleka ‘Block’ Kabanda to the City of Gold. EFC Featherweight Champion, Igeu Kabesa, makes an early trip to the EFC Performance Institute and, being no stranger to the EFC family, lives up to his nickname as ‘Smiley’.
It all comes to a head as the fighters meet face-to-face for the first time at the official EFC 99 weigh-ins ahead of the high-stakes meeting inside the Hex.
This is ENGAGED.
