EFC AFRICA - GIVEAWAY

 

 

 

 

‘HERCULEEZ’ VS. ‘THE LION’
Welterweight title on the line, May 01

 

 

AtEFC AFRICA 29 striking sensationDino `The Lion` Bagattindefends his welterweight strap against the Irishman from Nigeria, Henry `Herculeez` Fadipe, in his greatest battle yet. In addition tough customer Brendon Katz takes on the as yet unstoppableBarend Nienaberfor the coveted featherweight number one contender spot.

 

 

 

 

Welterweight champion Dino Bagattin (11-3) is a veteran of theEFC AFRICA organisation. In September of 2013 he faced former champion Michiel Opperman for his title, and took it from him in a brutal, decision encounter that was later named fight of the year.

 

Nigerian born, Ireland based Fadipe (7-6-1) entered theEFC AFRICAHexagon in April of 2013. He immediately impressed by battling the notorious Tumelo Maphutha to a split draw, and after scoring sensational wins against Martin van Staden and former champion Michiel Opperman.

 

Both men are known for their uncompromising, aggressive style. With a Twitter feud already playing out, the meeting between these two is personal and doubly deep with the title of Africa’s greatest welterweight on the line. Will Bagattin’s speed be Fadipe’s undoing, or will the power and unpredictability of the challenger prove too much for the champion?

 

Katz (6-2) is a well-known EFC AFRICAfigure. After debuting in his unforgettable encounter with Costa Ioannou, and thereafter defeating Mark Jones at
EFC AFRICA 04, he left African shores to fight internationally. He returned to face Gareth Buirski in September last year, and extended his form and win streak to secure a number one contender shot.


With a pro MMA record of 2-0, but riding an eight fight win streak including his amateur career, Nienaber brings smooth skill and burning hunger to this top contender encounter. Will his youth be the undoing of the more experienced Katz?

 

Former champions Jeremy ‘Pitbull’ Smith and Michiel Opperman battle it out in a highly anticipated clash of the superstars bout. Smith is intent on earning another shot at champion Garreth ‘Soldierboy’ McLellan, while Opperman, the perennial ‘Dark Horse’, is happy to make the rise to middleweight and test his power there, minus the welterweight weight cut.
