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

In the night’s main event, the promotion’s lightweight title will be on the line as champion Leon Mynhardt faces off with Dave Mazany. The long-reigning champion Mynhardt captured the belt at EFC 25 and has defended it four times. He is, 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 will feature flyweights Marino Cutendana and Baldwin Mdlalose.

EFC 51 kicks off Friday with the preliminary card at 16:45 CAT. The main card follows at 20:00 CAT.

Below are the results of the event’s weigh-ins which took place Thursday, July 14. Video of the weigh-ins appears above (courtesy of EFC Worldwide).
