On Friday, Aug. 5, EFC Worldwide will hold its 52nd event from Grand West in Cape Town, South Africa.

In the night’s main event, two former champions lock horns as Don Madge looks to make it three wins in a row as he takes on Brazilian Jadyson Costa.

The well-traveled veteran has not fought under the EFC banner since 2012.
