EFC 72 Van Staden Vs Mazany, Cape Town

It’s official! Former champ, USA’s Dave Mazany, will challenge South Africa’s Martin van Staden in the headlining fight at EFC 72, live from GrandWest, Cape Town taking place on Saturday 11 August.

Looking back to the same night that Van Staden claimed EFC lightweight gold, Mazany knocked out MMA legend Chris Bright. Marked as the fight to make, it was all but signed, until now.

Most recently, the man who is revered as one of the most dangerous strikers in the organization, realised his destiny and captured the EFC title in a back-and-forth war against England’s Gavin Hughes. Van Staden started his legacy in the MMA world in enigmatic fashion, he built up a meteoric record of spectacular performances, but now, in a fight against the former champion, it is his time to solidify it.
