Ruan Potts, undefeated heavyweight MMA fighter with a record of 10-0, steps up to face Calven Robinson at EFC Africa 07. With just weeks to go before the fight, Robinson’s initial opponent, Rico Hattingh, suffered a knee injury while training and was forced to withdraw.
According to EFC Africa President Cairo Howarth, Potts’ impeccable record makes him the obvious choice to replace Hattingh in the EFC Africa 07 main event. “With his Dragon Power pedigree, Potts has a very strong Muay Thai striking background, but he has also won the GASS submission grappling tournament, making him an extremely well-rounded fighter. He comes in at 120kg and is a top contender to take over from Rico (in this fight). We wish Rico a speedy recovery and hope to have him back with us for EFC Africa 08.”
