Most dominant EFC Champions

The EFC has gained a lot of momentum in the last years and has established itself as the dominant MMA promotion in South Africa. This success has help the promotion to attract the top fighters from around South Africa and to a degree the African continent. With 11 events under the belt, the EFC has begun to create a hierarchy within the divisions, most of which are now reigned by a champion.

Demarte “The Wolf” Pena – Featherweight
Costa Ioannou – Lightweight
Dallas Jakobi – Welterweight

We know that each champ sits atop his respective division, but how hard has the journey been for each man? Who has faced the toughest challenges? Who has stamped their authority the most upon the division they call home? I have done a little delving into the past to determine which of the current EFC champions is the most dominant.

To do this I have looked at the opponents they have faced in the EFC Hexagon, rated them according to their statistics in the EFC and without. I have then added bonuses for fights finished (via submission or knockout ) and title fights. The result is a score output for each EFC fight that the fighter has fought en route the EFC title. These fight scores are then summed and averaged to determine who I deem to the most dominant fighter and champion. 

Interestingly enough, only two of the EFC champions have lost a professional MMA bout, only one has lost a fight in the EFC Hexagon, and none of the current EFC champions have lost a fight in the EFC in their title weight division. All round we have a dominant bunch of fighters to work with, so let’s get down to business:

Dominant champion #5 – Dallas Jakobi
