EFC33 Africa Edition

The EFC33 edition was headlined by the massively anticipated middleweight title fight between Durban’s born and bred champion, Garreth ‘Soldierboy’ McLellan, and the undefeated 20 year old sensation Dricus du Plessis, hailing from Pretoria. It was certainly worth the wait to see Soldierboy raise that championship belt in front of his home town.

Co-headlining the event was the equally massive bad blood rematch between Durban and African MMA legend Martin ‘The Punisher’ van Staden, and the notorious Jeremy ‘Pitbull’ Smith, hailing from Johannesburg.

Legendary Bluff brothers Wesley and Donavin Hawkey drew massive cheers from their home crowd. EFC 33 saw Donavin face off Bernardo Mikixi for his final EFC appearance. To the delight of the home crown, after 3 hard rounds, we saw Donavin walk of the mat for the last time a winner. A true win for Durban indeed as both brothers won their fights!
