On Saturday night at EFC 80 Soldierboy vs Lesar, the world was left stunned for 2 reasons. The first, the ultimate underdog, Brendan Lesar KO’ed MMA icon, Garreth McLellan, in an upset victory to claim EFC middleweight gold. But what might have passed under the radar for some happened earlier on the main card. Rising bantamweight prospect, Devon Cronje (4-1) forgot his ball box (groin protector) before entering the hexagon against Guy Mongambi.

In the video below, Cronje can be seen going through the final safety checks by referee Wiekus Swart before both realising he isn’t wearing that vital piece of safety equipment.

The commentators even noted, “from what we have seen earlier tonight… was some nasty nut shots”.

Have a laugh as you watch the video of Cronje sprinting backstage to fetch his box. Surely this is a contender for walkout of the year?!
