EFC Africa’s first super heavyweight bout as well as a heavyweight title fight present knockout potential like never before, while the middleweight and featherweight divisions usher in hot new prospects eager to make their mark.

For the main event of the evening, Ruan ‘Fangzz’ Potts challenges Norman ‘Chef’ Wessels for the EFC Africa heavyweight title. This will be Wessels’ first title defence since he became champion by defeating Bernardo Mikixi at EFC Africa 05 in October 2010. Wessels now has a 4-1 record. The title challenger, Potts, holds a 12-0 record and earned his title shot by making very short work of his last two EFC Africa opponents, thanks to devastating ground-and-pound.

At middleweight, Jeremy ‘Pitbull’ Smith makes his EFC Africa debut against Liam Cleland. Smith has a phenomenal 9-1 record and has already garnered international recognition. However, the single loss on Smith’s record was put there by Cleland, and Smith is raring to settle the score. Cleland has a 3-1 record and will use all of his formidable jiu-jitsu weapons in this hugely anticipated rematch.

At featherweight, EFC Africa veteran ‘King’ Leo Gloss (8-2) takes on newcomer Charlie ‘Silky Smooth’ Weyer (0-0). Weyer may be new to the competitive MMA circuit, but he holds an undefeated boxing record and has been polishing his MMA game for the last year in preparation for his debut. Gloss also comes from a boxing background and has proven himself one of EFC Africa’s most dominant strikers. Prepare for a stand-up clash to remember!
