There is officially less than four weeks left until EFC 95 takes place and the full fight card has been confirmed on the official EFC website.
As announced at EFC 94, the main event of this card will witness the crowning of a new Featherweight Champion, following Reinaldo Ekson’s vacating of the title. Two-time former champion, Igeu ‘Smiley’ Kabesa, will go up against rising Angolan phenom Nerik ‘The Beast’ Simoes. Both Kabesa and Simoes are familiar faces in African MMA and will surely be making their impact on the international scene sooner rather than later but, before they get there, they look to gain that 145lb gold.
The co-main event of the evening will see the ever-exciting HP ‘Tropical’ van Staden go into battle against House of Tinkerbell’s Peace ‘X’ Nguphane in a welterweight clash that will provide the new #1 contender for the championship. Preceding those two massive bout will be a stacked 11 fights (all with division implications) bringing the EFC 95 card to being a 13-fight card.
