On Oct. 2, EFC will hold its 34th event, which takes place in Carnival City, Johannesburg, South Africa. The event features title bouts in the lightweight and bantamweight division.

In the night’s main event, lightweight champion Leon Mynhardt is set to defend his belt against Sibusiso Mdoko, while undefeated bantamweight Demarte Pena puts his title on the line against Francois Groenewald in the co-main event.

Mynhardt, who is currently riding a three-fight winning streak, was originally slated to meet Don Madge in a rematch of their EFC 25 bout which Mynhardt won via split decision. The bout would have served as a rubber match between the two talented lightweight. Mynhardt also got the upper hand in their EFC 13 bout in 2012. Mynhardt is coming off an impressive title defense where he knocked out Frederich Naumann in under a minute in February.

Mdoko enters the bout on just four weeks notice as the heavy underdog. However the 27-year-old Panther Fighting Arts and Fitness Academy product has impressed in his past three outings under the EFC banner and is also currently riding a three-fight winning-streak, with all three wins coming by way of either TKO or submission.
