Four Prelims Added To EFC 64

Tuesday morning, the EFC announced that four more fights will be added to their October 7th event in Durban. Each of the added fights will feature fighters either from or training in Durban and look to make the hometown crowd come alive at EFC 64.

The added fights are as follows from an official EFC release.

Tayla Kennedy vs Andrew Smith – Lightweight
Both Durbanites, Kennedy and Smith, have been calling each other out for several months, petitioning EFC matchmaker Graeme Cartmell to face each other. They get their chance.

Ngcobo vs Mikixi – Lightweight
Fighting out of Durban’s Team MMA fighter, Ngcobo  had a rough start to his EFC career, but has recently stunned crowds with his first-round TKO victory at EFC 62. His opponent Tshilomba, the younger brother of notorious heavyweight Bernardo Mikixi, impressed at Sun City on his debut. The ‘Brothers in Arms’ athlete possesses an athleticism reserved for the elite.

De Vries vs Madlopha – Flyweight
Two aggressive kickboxers, ‘The Bushknife’ De Vries  and ‘Super’ Madlopha will collide. Both of these Durban based athletes promise KO finishes with lightning fast striking. De Vries fights out of the famed GBH gym, while Madlopha splits his time between his own gym, Super Warriors, and House of Tinkerbell with JP Kruger.

Moodely vs Dwama – Flyweight
A Durban favourite, Moodley  brings fast paced striking mixed with a dynamic submission game. The DRC’s Dwama makes his debut out of Fighterz Inc. in Cape Town. If he is anything like his team mate Faeez Jacobs; he will bring aggressive pressure in a hunt for the finish.

These fights will be added to the current card which includes a main event of featherweights Wesley Hawkey and Jay Cuccinelllo as well as a heavyweight co-main event as Ricky Misholas looks to get to .500 when he faces Wessel Mostert
