ROODMAN AFTER REDEMPTION ON DAVIES
Roodman moves up to middleweight to face his long time nemesis
15 October 2015
Johannesburg, South Africa – Already headlined by welterweight champion David Buirski defending his belt against the heavy handed challenger Martin ‘The Punisher’ van Staden, as well as Ireland’s Henry ‘Herculeez’ Fadipe vs. Pretoria’s Dricus ‘Stillknocks’ du Plessis and the return of the legend Chris Bright vs. two time champion Adam Speechly. EFC 46 now sees the addition of Gordon ‘Rage’ Roodman vs. Keron ‘Skinner’ Davies.
Roodman and Davies have faced each other before as amateurs, where it is said they put on a five round war fit for a banquet in Valhalla. Davies walked away from that bout the winner and the champion and was signed to EFC shortly after.
Roodman later followed in a lighter weight category, seemingly never to get his shot at redemption for that historical night.
All that is about to change, Roodman will have his shot at Davies again. This time on the biggest MMA stage in front of thousands of screaming fans, where they promise to put on an even bigger fight than when they first met.
