The EFC’s Fight Night 1 took place at the EFC Performance Institute in Johannesburg, South Africa on Saturday 9 October and the card delivered some great action from the athletes and some dubious performances from a referee.  The Bantamweight main event saw Shana Power defeat Christine Wolmarans by contentious submission early in round 2.
