I’ve been an MMA and EFC fan for a couple of years now and EFC 80 is most certainly up there as one of the most anticipated events of my time as a fan – some are even piping it to be the biggest night in EFC history!

While my live experiences have always been contained to Cape Town fight nights, I am super excited to be in Jozi for this one, catching a historic event live at Carnival City will certainly be one to remember.

For those who are still catching up on the whats-what and who’s who of EFC 80, here’s the full low down…

Carnival City, Johannesburg will play host to a massive EFC 80 event brought to you by Constantia Insurance, which sees the interim middleweight title on the line, the #TF2 Finale, welterweight Grand Prix and seven more exhilarating fights.

Over 20 million viewers on the African Continent alone are expected to tune in to watch live and millions more around the world. Plus, former double-division champion, Dalcha Lungiambula is set to make his UFC debut Saturday night in Minneapolis, USA.

All of this and more takes place this week.
