Tyron Rightford vs Donavin Hawkey announced for EFC 12

The EFC Africa 12 fight card, set to take place at Carnival City on March 2, has been further bolstered by the addition of much anticipated Middleweight bout between Donavin "Bam Bamz" Hawkey and Tyron"The Rush" Rightford, in a fight which pits the old school MMA legend, Hawkey, against an up and coming MMA prodigy, Rightford.

Although from different eras, both Hawkey and Rightford recently made my Top 5 MMA Middleweights in South Africa list, making this not only one of the feature fights on the card, but one of the most anticipated fights in the EFC’s short history. There is also a lot at stake, as the winner is almost certainly guaranteed a title shot against the winner of EFC 12’s Middleweight title bout between Garreth McLellan and Jeremy Smith.

The addition of this fight may just have solidified EFC Africa 12 as the single best fight card ever produced on African soil.
