Ruckus EFC 83 Build-Up

With just on a month to go until the final EFC event of 2019, I cannot help thinking that the EFC must be happy that this year is almost done. What was meant to be a celebratory year following 10 years of building Professional MMA on the African Continent gradually turned into a nightmare following […]

Ruckus Argument

It was about this time last year that we wrote about the impending battle between EFC and BraveCF, when the latter announced that they would be challenging the former by hosting their inaugural South African event on the same night as EFC. Well fast-forward to the present day and the EFC faces yet another battle, […]

Were you one of the many confused fite fans that could not quite work out why the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world had to wait for 2 guys with more than 20 losses between them to finish fighting for the BMF Strap? I sure as hell was, this despite the fact that both Golden […]

To truly appreciate the comedy that was EFC 82, let us cast our minds back to the July Social Media revelations by the (then) welterweight title contenders as they blissfully proceeded to justify their GP recommended use of IV vitamin infusions. What made the entire incident more bizarre was the handling of the entire affair […]

Hope is a terrible thing! The build-up to EFC80 could quite possibly be summarised as a culmination of a long-standing series of events; firstly, the showdown between Conrad Seabi and Luke Michael. Secondly, the #TF2 Finale which would determine the contender for the Ladies Flyweight Strap.Thirdly, the much anticipated return of Garreth “Soldierboy” McLellan, arguably […]

With the South African National Championships less than a week away, I truly have to wonder about the state of the sport in South Africa and I think that IMMAF should be too. Looking at the recent fight cards of the few sanctioned Amateur promotions around Gauteng, namely Fightstars, EWC, RAW and GFC, highlights that […]

The build-up to EWC 11 over the past few weeks gave a hint to the fact that the EWC promotion had undergone a bit of a change. Firstly it was the new, cleaner look of their new logo. Next it was the fact that their fight-&-dine format of the past 2 events was no longer […]

Ruckus EFC75

Building up to EFC75, I was rather skeptical about the the fight card with too many questions about what fans would be treated to, but to many people’s surprise, we witnessed a fantastic mix of fights and some MIND BLOWING KO’s! The opening 2 fights of the undercard delivered debutantesque performances until a certain Khulekani […]

Ruckus EWC 9

It has been more than 6 months since EWC last put on a fight event and what a return the chaps at EWC made in their first event back on the local Amateur circuit. The fight card was littered with a host of debutants among the 15 fights and promised to finish off with a […]

Judging is still impacting negatively on athletes and their careers! Yet again we have a situation where the basics of the 10-point Must System have been disregarded. According to this System, judges should evaluate mixed martial arts techniques, such as effective striking, effective grappling, control of the cage, effective aggression and defense. I do not […]
