WIN: DBL VIP Tickets To EFC 25 [closed]

I haven’t know Don personally for all that long, but he was introduced to me by a mutual buddy who trains with him now and then. I really gained an interest in his career after his last fight with Leon Mynhardt, when he was robbed of victory! I then followed his training and career via Twitter and our mutual friend, until he became the EFC Lightweight Champion in his last encounter in the hexagon!

There is no doubt the guy is one of the most talented fighters in his weight class, and, I tip him to make the step up to the International UFC arena one day when the time is right! But first, it’s payback time for the last time Madge vs Mynhardt took the EFC by storm… It’s said to be the most anticipated fight in EFC history, and, here is the video of their first fight to show you why! It gets bloody, watch the kick Don lands with 8 seconds to go in the 1st round. WOW!

On 27 June of this year Don Madge gave Ioannou the war of his life, ending his reign with a rear naked choke in the fifth. Suddenly everything was reversed. Madge had done the impossible, he had shown the maturity and mental toughness he had been lacking in his first bout with Mynhardt, he had conquered all.

Today he is the unbeatable champion. Today he is the fighter that Mynhardt wants to be. This fight on 7 November is going to be FUCKING insane! Here’s the official promo video for the fight of the decade…

At EFC AFRICA 25, when Madge and Mynhardt meet for the second time, the thread between them climaxes. Madge is intent on avenging his only loss in the Hexagon against only the second man to have beaten him in a career spanning over a hundred fights, the other a world champion. Mynhardt is looking for redemption and proof of what he has worked his whole career to be; the best. For both each is the greatest test possible, for both losing is not an option, winning is everything.

This fight is impossible to predict, it is a replaying of 2012’s fight of the year and in the journey that each has taken to it could very possibly explode into the fight of the decade. At EFC AFRICA 13 these men presented an unforgettable war. On November 07 they have two extra rounds to do the same. In addition to the main event 24 more of Africa’s greatest warriors go head to head in 13 bouts in total.

    this is something that could work 😀 ..” I don’t know what to say, really. Three minutes to the biggest battle of our professional lives. All comes down to today, and either, we heal as a team, or we’re gonna crumble. Inch by inch, play by play. Until we’re finished. We’re in hell right now, gentlemen. Believe me. And, we can stay here, get the shit kicked out of us, or we can fight our way back into the light. We can climb outta hell… one inch at a time. Now I can’t do it for ya, I’m too old. I look around, I see these young faces and I think, I mean, I’ve made every wrong choice a middle-aged man can make. I, uh, I’ve pissed away all my money, believe it or not. I chased off anyone who’s ever loved me. And lately, I can’t even stand the face I see in the mirror. You know, when you get old, in life, things get taken from you. I mean, that’s… that’s… that’s a part of life. But, you only learn that when you start losin’ stuff. You find out life’s this game of inches, so is football. Because in either game – life or football – the margin for error is so small. I mean, one half a step too late or too early and you don’t quite make it. One half second too slow, too fast and you don’t quite catch it. The inches we need are everywhere around us. They’re in every break of the game, every minute, every second. On this team we fight for that inch. On this team we tear ourselves and everyone else around us to pieces for that inch. We claw with our fingernails for that inch. Because we know when add up all those inches, that’s gonna make the fucking difference between winning and losing! Between living and dying! I’ll tell you this, in any fight it’s the guy whose willing to die whose gonna win that inch. And I know, if I’m gonna have any life anymore it’s because I’m still willing to fight and die for that inch, because that’s what living is, the six inches in front of your face. Now I can’t make you do it. You’ve got to look at the guy next to you, look into his eyes. Now I think ya going to see a guy who will go that inch with you. Your gonna see a guy who will sacrifice himself for this team, because he knows when it comes down to it your gonna do the same for him. That’s a team, gentlemen, and either, we heal, now, as a team, or we will die as individuals. That’s football guys, that’s all it is. Now, what are you gonna do? ” Good luck

    “He can have heart, he can hit harder and he can be stronger, but there’s no fighter smarter than me.”

    —Floyd Mayweather Jr.

    Use your head, heart and muscle – be smart and stay calm and collected when you walk in to that ring…..

    Im not going to say good luck – there is no such thing. All your effort and training will shine through

    All the best bud. Sending light and love Xxx

    Time for revenge and to make sure that belt stays in Cape Town! Get stuck in Don!!!

  5. Buks Saayman October 30, 2013 at 4:57 pm #

    Hey Don

    Having achieved as much as you have at your age, inspires me to push myself.

    Just when I think I want to give up, I think to myself, if you can do it, at the very least, I can try and do more. Not only physically, but mentally as well.

    The only way is up dude! Enjoy the ride.

    Breath, relax and have fun; but most of all bring us his head.

  7. Dwen-Hein Heiberg October 30, 2013 at 5:53 pm #

    Don, we all know you are unbeatable. The only reason Mynhardt even concidered taking you on, is due to the cash EFC is paying him.

    Now go out there, fuck him up, keep your belt and show everyone Don is un-fucking-beatable.

  8. Wade Hammond October 30, 2013 at 8:46 pm #

    Plain and Simple, Don is the most gifted and hard working athlete in the EFC. This guy was born to fight and he wont stop at nothing, i know guys that do some training with him and the stories i hear have inspired me to become a champion. This guy is the REAL DEAL! The EFC has only seen a glimpse of what he is capable of, and November 7, there is no doubt in my mind he wont retain HIS Title with ease.

    To Don and the MANBEAST team,

    Don you have come a long way, I still remember the days I was lucky enough and grateful to spar with you at bulldog gym. Still remember the exact day when my dad , kai casson came along to spar and guess what he had to spar with you , my dad probably was weighing 120kg then and you were about 65-70 kg and 19 years of age, and that pain fall 3 minutes my dad had to go through he was acting tough but ended up with a blue eye, later on that night his wife asks him what happened? My dad’s response was a 19 year old beat the crap out of me lol he’s a ninja and he weighs half my weight lol !!! That just proves no matter how big he is or how tough he is there is someone better than him !!! Have been a fan of yours for a long time just go in there and show everyone why you are called the magic man!!! Unleash the beast and I have no doubt in my mind !! You will retain that belt just please to me one favour and knock him out please all the Leon fans are getting abit to confident to be honest and there’s me replying to like 20 messages on the EFC every night because they think there boy Leon is going to win :p not a chance!!! Just a reminder UFC is waiting for you . #MANBEAST

  10. Boudine Cook October 30, 2013 at 9:45 pm #

    Don, you have changed the image of MMA with your quality tactics and your aggressiveness in the cage.
    You’ve got a great future & you will hold the title years to come!!!
    Good Luck!

  11. Noel Boshoff October 30, 2013 at 10:57 pm #

    Good luck Don. We’ve spoken before on twitter. I’m coming to your mma club as soon as I’m healed up :). Good luck in your fight at EFC 25. Gonna be in the crowd watching you keep your title 🙂

  12. Shane October 30, 2013 at 11:36 pm #

    Don dominated Costa and evolved into an all round machine. One of the if not fittest okes on the planet trained by the best Michael Mouneimne at PFA

    The new era is there and the Magic Man will be in a UFC cage to dominate there too

    On the night damn right Bro, we will be there in force supporting you

  13. Adrian "Funky" Phipps October 31, 2013 at 8:28 am #

    This dude belongs in the UFC x se.. I think South Africans could make a real impact at the international level. We are generally just tough bastards so this should translate mooi into MMA…. Madge vs Pettis let’s make it happen..

  15. Brad October 31, 2013 at 11:51 am #

    Madge! You have what it takes to send a message to Leon that he will not soon forget. Hit hard and hit fast – this is yours for the taking.

  16. Craig Rhodes-Harrison October 31, 2013 at 11:56 am #

    My Money is on Madge.

    This guy is all time and while Mynhardt will put up a good fight, the champ will reign supreme.

    Super excited to check out the Don work his Madgic on Mynhardt.

    Home grown hero for the win!

  17. Grant Cohen October 31, 2013 at 2:24 pm #

    Don Madge is a freaken machine! If anyone thinks they’re gonna come to Cape Town and leave with that belt, they’ve been kicked in the head toooo many times already and shouldnt be fighting in that case! Good luck man! Of course the trainers have once again taken Don to another level higher. The quality of the guy just keeps on growing! Represent CT and show the outsiders coming down what CT is made of

  18. xdvd November 1, 2013 at 12:12 pm #

    Good luck for the upcoming fight Magic Man.

    To Don and the ManBeast TEAM.

    Let’s show Mynhardt why you are the EFC Lightweight champion. This time the fight is on your home ground. Thursday night is going to be wild. Been tracking your training on social media and know you ready to bring a beating.
    Keep the belt in Cape Town.

  20. Josh McMillan November 4, 2013 at 4:31 pm #

    Dear Don Madge and his team.

    Consider what a truly great City you live in and the overwhelming support that you are feeling at the moment. Think of all the magnificent possibilities that are yours right now. On Thursday during the fight think of the focused, purposeful, effective effort that you will put in to beat Maynard. You can bring new and meaningful value to your work, your home, your family, your community and your dreams. On Thursday you can learn, experience, work, feel, love and play. You can make creative use of whatever you have to move in the direction of whatever you desire. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. So let yourself imagine something wonderful, and then enjoy the wonderful experience of making it happen. Though it might seem easier and more comfortable to just do nothing, that’s really not the case. If you waste the great possibilities of this day, you will very soon come to regret it. So avoid that regret and jump into action. Thursday is much too valuable to waste.

    Thanks for inspiring me

    Sjoe, where do I start?

    I didn’t know much about the MMA scene at first, but when you’re dating a muaythai/BJJ/boxing/MMA enthusiast – it’s hard to ward off the addiction 🙂 Le boyfriend started training at a new gym and would come home ,telling me about one of his rolling partners (who happened to submit him quite a lot): Don Madge.

    His stories of the commitment, energy and effort which you put into your training have me convinced that there is no one who wants it more than you. The amount you have achieved at the ripe old age of 21 is indicative of this passion and I wish you only the best for Thursday night.

    Your team is behind you 100% and the whole of CT is rooting for you! Go get ’em 😉
