EFC 36: Allen vs. Groth


It’s Fight Week… Get ready for the final fight night of the year!

A championship battle featuring two of the organisation’s most exciting and dynamic stand-up specialists, and a welterweight clash between bitter rivals top the card at EFC 36.

Get to the Coca-Cola Dome for the ultimate sport entertainment experience, and if you can’t make it there, as a year-end EFC thank you, go to any selected Ster-Kinekor cinema to watch the entire event FREE.

On Thursday we see if the recently crowned featherweight champion Boyd Allen can, for the first time, successfully defend his championship title, or if the new, faster and stronger Wade Groth will cause one of the biggest upsets in EFC history and dethrone the man who seems to have complete control over the division.

Plus a highly charged bout takes place between the former welterweight champion Dino Bagattin and the upcoming tough as nails hype machine, Gordon Roodman. The first ever flyweight bout ensues as ‘Zuluboy’ takes on ‘Franaconda’, and the undefeated wrestling sensation Igeu Kabesa, who has yet to be pushed to the limit, gets the Hexagon test of a lifetime against former title contender Barend Nienaber.


8 more action packed bouts including 1 heavyweight bout and 2 former division contenders conclude the last event of 2014.
