De Vos vs van Niekerk at EFC 12

The Extreme Fighting Challenge has released the details of the final fight for their upcoming event EFC Africa 12. The fight card, consisting of 11 bouts, will now include a lightweight scrap between Paul De Vos and EFC debutant Ryan Van Niekerk.

Van Niekerk, however, is no newcomer to Mixed Martial Arts and has fought some of the biggest names in the game, including Chris Bright (#2 Lightweight Rankings), Wesley Hawkey and William Bentley. Citing a need to push himself as his reason for fighting in the stacked Lightweight division, Van Niekerk will look to impress in his maiden hexagon appearance.

De Vos too has fought some big names in Brendon Katz (#3 Lightweight Rankings) and Leo Gloss. Coming off a year break, "Dynamite" will have an opportunity to start a good run with a big win over a seasoned campaigner.
