Hot on the heels of the dramatic events last week at EFC 104, Africa’s biggest combat sports entity is proud to announce it expects to exceed even that incredible night of action with EFC 105 now rubber-stamped with Musa Sethwape and Shannon van Tonder having inked contracts to compete for the 135lb title. After former champion and current UFC star Cameron Saaiman vacated the belt, it was worn briefly by Zim sensation, Nicholas Hwende who likewise vacated the title to compete abroad and now one of the deepest divisions in the EFC will find out on the 13th of July, which one of its’ two top contenders will inherit a strap that continues to propel anyone who wears into into global stardom! Sethwape and Van Tonder competed previously at the historic EFC 100 event last year in a bout which failed to quell the bad blood between the two. Even though Sethwape took the decision win that night, Van Tonder has since risen back to the top with a stunning first-round demolition of veteran Ashley Calvert this past April, whilst Sethwape had yet to compete as a result of a training injury. Now with both fighters fit, and with rankings dictating who deserves contention, this rematch has everything! Bitter animosity with a massive quarrel to settle once and for all, now with the added motivation of a championship title on the line. Eleven fights in total are locked for EFC 105, including a massive featherweight clash between the undefeated Prince Lolia and CIT’s destructive Sizwe Mnikathi making this card appointment viewing for fight fans around the world and it all goes down in just three weeks time!
EFC 105 is presented by World Sports Betting and takes place on Thursday, 13 July 2023, live from the EFC Performance Institute in JHB, South Africa.
