The Extreme Fighting Championships of Africa is gradually building steam to become a reckoning force in the international mixed martial arts scene. They've surely established themselves as the continental flagship promotion of Africa. Additionally, a broadcast deal with Fox-Africa has strengthened their promotional status, and this card might be the show to push them over the top.
Two title bouts will go on the line on November 10 at the Coca Cola Dome in Johannesburg. Current heavyweight champ Ruan Potts will make his first EFCA title defense, toeing the line with undefeated Andrew Van Zyl 7-0 at the top of the card. In the co-main event, EFCA Lightweight titleholder Costa Ioannou will see Alex Cheboub in 155 lb. title action.
The EFCA has recruited talent from all over the African continent for this card. Tez Makuebo (Democratic Republic of the Congo), Victor Anyaogu (Nigeria), and Amr Wahman (Egypt) will represent some of the best in inter-African competition.
