Chaos Almost Reigns At EFC 82 Weigh-In

On Friday morning all 20 competitors facing off at EFC 82 on September 28th took to the scale in Johannesburg.

Not all fighters were on weight though, as EFC welterweight title contender Luke Michael was over the 170-pound welterweight limit by half a pound.

Michael is facing off against rival and former teammate Themba Gorimbo in the finals of the EFC Welterweight Grand Prix.

“Tomorrow I will be smart, quick and ruthless. I want to kill him!”, responded Gorimbo said following the weigh-ins

“I am incredibly ready for tomorrow. Expect fireworks, my journey got me to this point and tomorrow I will take EFC gold!”, Michael claimed before taking the scale, as he will no longer be able to win the title if he defeats Gorimbo on Saturday.

If Michael is able to defeat Gorimbo, he will be given the title of the number-one contender, and have the opportunity to face Gormibo one-more time for the title.
