2 HUGE FIGHTS TO INVEST IN Faeez Jacobs vs. Sylvester Chipfumbu for EFC gold.Boyd Allen returns to the Hexagon to face Bruno Mukulu.

Johannesburg, South Africa – EFC is back and ready to shake up the sports world with massive fight news and ground breaking revolutionary changes. It is now official, EFC 85 is set to take place on Saturday 8 May headlined by champion Faeez Jacobs as he puts his EFC 135 pound division title on the line for the first time, against Zimbabwean former title contender, Sylvester Chipfumbu. EFC 85 will also herald the highly anticipated return of former featherweight champion Boyd Allen as he takes on welterweight veteran, Bruno Mukulu, in the lightweight division.

Cape Town’s Jacobs realised a life long dream on 10 August 2019 when he claimed the EFC title over the notorious Nkazimulo Zulu. Long heralded as one of the most exhilarating athletes on the EFC roster, Jacobs proclaimed “dreams do come true” to the thousands of fans in attendance on that fateful night. With a new champ upon the throne, a scramble emerged amongst the top contenders; all vying for the prized official No.1 contender spot. One man stood above them all, Zimbabwe’s Sylvester Chipfumbu. A lethal striker who came close to capturing gold previously, is determined to manifest Jacobs’ own words.

Former champion Boyd Allen makes his long awaited return to the sport of MMA when he faces the powerful Bruno Mukulu. The last time fans saw Allen in EFC was November 2017, where he defeated Scottish contender Calum Murrie in clinical fashion. Allen took his unorthodox striking to boxing where he had incredible success, claiming various titles. The thrill of an EFC fight is large, and the legend has returned. Mukulu is renowned for his explosivity and athleticism. He has faced many EFC middle and welterweight champions, and is now taking his strengths down to the lightweight division.

“It’s been a long time since we have been in action,” started VP of Talent, Graeme Cartmell. “We are putting on the biggest fight card possible and this is just the beginning!”

In a unique and strategic move, it has recently been disclosed that EFC, the continent’s largest and leading MMA organisation, will be making 20% of equity in the business available to athletes and supporters within the next few weeks.

“We are looking forward to being the first African sports property owned by the athletes themselves,” said EFC president Cairo Howarth. “Supporters will also have the opportunity to invest alongside the athletes in the EFC organisation.”

Howarth concluded, “After a few quieter months due to the government COVID restrictions around sport, EFC has seen a resurgence of interest with the announcement of the return to live action, the EFC 85 fight card and the unique investment offering. We are excited for a busy second quarter of 2021.”

EFC 85, Jacobs vs. Chipfumbu, is presented by World Sports Betting and takes place on Saturday 8 May 2021. Broadcast information at

SEA – Home to up to 80% of all life on Earth

STAIN – our ocean is being stained/ tainted by over fishing, “unnecessary” killings of marine life and plastic pollution

ABILITY – what do we as humans do? What abilities do we have to help protect our ocean and the future of our planet.

I am a lover of the ocean, you could call me a water baby…..a cool dip in the sea is refreshing for the body and mind that is why I love living in Cape Town, South Africa.

The ocean has so many benefits to healthy living:

7 Benefits of Cold Water Swimming

1. It boosts your immune system

2. It gives you a natural high

3. It improves your circulation

4. It increases your libido

5. It burns calories

6. It reduces stress

7. It is a great way of socialising and making new friends

I just watched the new documentary on Netflix, Seaspiracy and was shocked at what is happening to our sea life. At first I thought it was a documentary how pollution is killing OUR ocean life, but on a deeper level it was more disturbing than that.

I learnt that plastic pollution is not the only thing that is killing our ocean life, it is but a miniscule element to the bigger picture….the documentary unravels the various other factors that are damaging our beautiful ocean and planet. The various interviews within the documentary are shocking and the footage cringe-worthy to say the least but it is a real eye opener. It seemed to me like the love for money is the real evil.

There are some drastic step that can be taken and are needed to avoid the ocean being depleted of its natural resources and in effect destroying our beautiful planet…it all starts with small steps by you and I.

“Most of the positive and negative things that bring about change in human civilization start with someone….some “one”, and no one can do everything, but everyone can do something and sometimes big ideas make a big difference. That is what we can do, that is what YOU can do right now. Look in the mirror, figure it out…..GO FOR IT!” – Sylvia Earle – Seaspiracy

It is the small things that make the big differences, imagine a world where we cannot enjoy a swim in the sea because of pollution or people who depend on fish for food cannot eat because of over-fishing….it is a bleak reality but if we work together educate ourselves we can all enjoy what this world has to offer properly.
