EFC Africa 12 takes place at Carnival City on 2 March for another anticipated MMA event. The main event of the evening sees Jeremy “Pitbull” Smith attempt to dethrone current middleweight champion Garreth “Soldierboy” McLellan.
Smith is an impressive athlete with numerous international fights building his 10-1 record, making him one of Africa’s most respected MMA athletes. His fight against McLellan won’t be an easy one though… McLellan is a fierce warrior, who is now 6-1 in professional MMA, and he is the current champion with good reason; his well-rounded strikes and submissions have defeated all rivals in some of EFC Africa’s most climactic battles to date.
Also on the card, featherweights Denzil Wait and Wesley Hawkey are both eager to climb the rankings and challenge the champion, Demarte Pena, in their division. Then, Paul Kietzmann and Ricky Misholas, mean machines with boxing backgrounds, seek a knockout at light heavyweight. Also bitter welterweight rivals Wade Henderson and Josh Muller finally give up on words and vow to settle their differences in the cage.
