On Friday, July 15, EFC Worldwide held its 51st event from Carnival City in Johannesburg, South Africa.

In the night’s main event, the promotion’s lightweight title was on the line as champion Leon Mynhardt faced off with Dave Mazany. The long-reigning champion Mynhardt captured the belt at EFC 25 and has defended it four times. He was, however, coming off a split-decision loss in a non-title affair against Boyd Allen at EFC 47. The American Mazany earned his crack at gold after stopping Sibusiso Mdoko by second-round TKO at EFC 42.

The co-main event featured flyweights Marino Cutendana and Baldwin Mdlalose.
