Extreme Fighting Championship-Africa is taking their ninth event to the extreme! Just three days to go before the EFCA hits the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg to stage a 13-fight card. At the top of the card is a heavyweight title bout between reigning champion Norman "Chef" Wessels and challenger Ruan Potts.

All EFCA Champions are awarded rings in honor of their championship title. The rings are valued at 30,000 Rand ($4,300 USD), according to the EFCA website. Will Ruan Potts get some bling at EFCA 9?

Potts is ready to bear gold. Here's what he said in a recent EFCA article:
“I think it has to do with the fact that people like a winner, I am a good fighter and I have never lost (in 12 professional fights) and people respond to that.

“I am ecstatic about being given the opportunity to fight for the title, it’s definitely the biggest fight of my career and I am not going to let the opportunity slip past me. I have trained, and am ready for a five round war!

“I am a better all round fighter than Norman, I don’t think he (Wessels) has any weak points but he definitely has openings and I am going to be targeting them. I am coming into this fight fitter and better prepared than my previous fights and I am ready for anything.

“I am definitely going to win. I am determined to win this fight and everything I have ever set my mind to I have won. Thursday will be no different.”

The EFC-Africa offered two additional promo vids for the Smith-Cleland, and Gloss-Weyer bouts:
