On Saturday, Aug. 8, EFC Worldwide held its 42nd event from GrandWest, Cape Town, South Africa.
The event was headlined by a light heavyweight title fight between champion Norman Wessels and challenger “Champion” Dalcha Lungiambula. Fight Fit Militia’s Wessels is a two-time titleholder with the promotion, having competed for the promotion since its inaugural event. In nine career fights, he’d never gone the distance. He earned the 205-pound strap with a fourth-round TKO of Gideon Drotschie at EFC 35. Dalcha had yet to taste defeat through four appearances in the EFC. The 30-year-old looked to keep his undefeated record intact and secure gold with a win over Wessels.
