15 October 2015
Johannesburg, South Africa – EFC 46 is well on its way to becoming a truly incredible event, which just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Fresh off a win at EFC 44, ‘Fight of the Night’ maker Oumpie ‘Lion Heart’ Sebeko, returns to take-on his former opponent’s teammate and former number one contender Abdul ‘Hollywood’ Hassan.
At EFC 44 Sebeko faced Durban’s Peter ‘Kratos’ Nyide in the opening fight of the main card. A highly entertaining action packed bout that ended in a split decision in favour of Sebeko. Many fans have been extremely vocal in their disapproval of the judges’ decision and calling for a rematch.
Nyide’s coach and camp were outspoken and disapproving of the decision, but instead of asking for an immediate rematch; opted to throw one of their most experienced athletes take on Sebeko. In steps Hassan, a former challenger and one of the most experienced athletes in EFC. Hunting for revenge for his teammate for the controversial decision, Hassan jumped at the opportunity to face Sebeko as early as possible.
Both athletes have put on performance bonus winning fights in their most recent outings in the Hexagon and are sure to set the crowd alight with big exchanges and bigger takedowns.
