Dallas Jakobi - Fighter Profile

Dallas Jakobi has been involved in MMA for over 5 years. Something of a veteran in the sport, he has competed in a number of different promotions, but has recently found a home in the Extreme fighting championship.

Originally a Middleweight, Jakobi started slowly in the EFC with a loss to Darren Daniel, but soon found has groove and strung together and impressive 3 fight streak in the middleweight division, which earned him a title shot, ironically in the welterweight division. Jakobi took the opportunity and looked extremely comfortable at welterweight. He managed to defeat grappling wizard Adam Speechly at EFC Africa 10 in a five round battle to become the second EFC Africa welterweight champion.

Jakobi will now face a similar ground threat in dangerous Brazilian fighter Jadyson Costa at EFC 13 in April 2012.
