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. The […]

The EFC celebrates their 90th event with their first Fight Night (a la the UFC) taking place this coming Saturday at the EFC Performance Institute in Johannesburg, South Africa. A glimpse at the card highlights that the EFC are following in the footsteps of the UFC where Fight Night events feature lower-profile athletes – marketed as future contenders – […]

Let us start where the rest of the global MMA community left things off following on EFC88 – with the officiating debacle where referee Natasha Brits allowed a debuting athlete to get choked out on 3 occasions!  The MMASA “Corrective Actions” as outlined in their letter dated 17 August 2021, clearly stated that Mrs Brits “will have to pass a locally presented officials’ course, and only then […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ruckus EFC 83 Build-Up

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 […]
