On Thursday, Oct. 2, EFC Worldwide (formerly EFC Africa) will host its 34th event from Carnival City, Johannesburg, South Africa.
In the night’s main event, the promotion’s lightweight title will be on the line as champion Leon Mynhardt takes on Sibusiso Mdoko. The champion Mynhardt has won five of his last six bouts, including a 38-second knockout of Frederich Naumann at EFC 27 in February. Mdoko enters the title contest on short notice, replacing Don Madge. The 27-year-old has finished his last three fights inside the EFC cage, including a second-round TKO of Alain Ilunga in June.
The night’s co-main event also features EFC gold up for grabs as bantamweight champion Demarte Pena locks horns with Francois Groenewald. Pena, who has held both the featherweight and bantamweight belts, has yet to taste defeat in his nine-fight career. He bested Nkazimulo Zulu by decision in July. Groenewald, meanwhile, has won four straight fights. All four have come before the final bell.
EFC 34 airs live via online pay-per-view on the promotion’s website starting at 16:15 CAT. The main card follows at 20:00 CAT.
