On Saturday, June 6, EFC Worldwide will hold its 40th event from Carnival City, Johannesburg.

The event is headlined by a welterweight clash between former welterweight champion and EFC veteran Dino Bagattin and former middleweight contender Dricus du Plessis. The fight will mark the welterweight debut for du Plessis.

In the co-main event, former EFC heavyweight champion Ruan Potts makes his return to the promotion after a three-fight stint in the UFC. Potts will meet Frenchman Cyril Asker, who made his EFC debut at EFC 37 and earned a unanimous decision over Ricky Misholas. The card also features a lightweight clash between Igeu Kabesa and Peter Queally.


Undefeated in his professional career, Kabesa has won five bouts inside the Hexagon.

The bout with Kabesa will mark Queally’s debut in the lightweight division for EFC, with the Irishman first competing at welterweight. Queally’s EFC debut saw him defeat Francois Kabulu by way of unanimous decision. The SBG Ireland product has won his last two fights in a row with all five of his professional wins coming by way of unanimous decision.
