Prelim Prima-Donnas  In what now can be described as one of the last major sporting events with fans in a stadium environment, the first event of 2020 for the EFC Organisation was a real mixed bag. The Prelims were marred by Mark Kamba withdrawing from his fight while standing in the cage apparently as a […]

Following on the huge success of African MMA athletes across the world – Israel Adesnya, Kamaru Usman, Manel Kape, Dalcha Lungiumbula, Don Madge and Bokang Masunyane to name but a few – IMMAF recently announced the formation of their African Committee aimed at helping the Federation deliver on its goals at both a regional level […]

Ruckus EFC 83 Build-Up

If this is the new and improved Elvis Ngwalangwala, then I like him very much! His dominante performance in the first 2 rounds had Strydom gasping for air throughout the 3rd. His victory snaps his 2-fight skid. A cool, calm and composed Cameron Saaiman announced his arrival on the professional MMA scene with a performance […]

With just on a month to go until the final EFC event of 2019, I cannot help thinking that the EFC must be happy that this year is almost done. What was meant to be a celebratory year following 10 years of building Professional MMA on the African Continent gradually turned into a nightmare following […]

Ruckus Argument

It was about this time last year that we wrote about the impending battle between EFC and BraveCF, when the latter announced that they would be challenging the former by hosting their inaugural South African event on the same night as EFC. Well fast-forward to the present day and the EFC faces yet another battle, […]

Were you one of the many confused fite fans that could not quite work out why the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world had to wait for 2 guys with more than 20 losses between them to finish fighting for the BMF Strap? I sure as hell was, this despite the fact that both Golden […]

ADMINISTRATIVE BULLSHIT REIGNS SUPREME. It just does not seem to get an easier for the team at Gauteng Fighting Championship (GFC)! Their original 12-fight card was reduced to 5-fights as a result of gyms, in particular the XKT Gyms, advising GFC that they are no longer allowed to compete anywhere else other than their own […]

To truly appreciate the comedy that was EFC 82, let us cast our minds back to the July Social Media revelations by the (then) welterweight title contenders as they blissfully proceeded to justify their GP recommended use of IV vitamin infusions. What made the entire incident more bizarre was the handling of the entire affair […]

It was a night that witnessed a reduced fight card – from 16 fights to 11 fights – due in part to personal issues but also in part to MMASA’s “newly enforced medical suspension rule”! As the story goes, GFC were contacted on the Thursday before the event by MMASA informing them that 2 fighters […]

Hope is a terrible thing! The build-up to EFC80 could quite possibly be summarised as a culmination of a long-standing series of events; firstly, the showdown between Conrad Seabi and Luke Michael. Secondly, the #TF2 Finale which would determine the contender for the Ladies Flyweight Strap.Thirdly, the much anticipated return of Garreth “Soldierboy” McLellan, arguably […]
