Johan van Staden vs Alain Ilunga EFC 13

Today, another lightweight fight was added to the fight card for Cape Town's EFC 13. Fight force veteran Johan van Staden will make his EFC Africa debut against fellow EFC debutante Alain Ilunga.

Johan "The Gun" van Staden (12-5) is an experienced MMA fighter, who is accustomed to fighting bigger opponents, including some of South Africa's top MMA fighters in Michiel Opperman, Ryan van Niekerk, Leon Mynhardt and Ronald Dlamini. The Gun holds notable wins over Donald Nzirawa and Kelvin Mwale.  Having recently moved camps to Fightfit Militia and dropping to lightweight, I expect to see a new improved Johan van Staden at EFC 13.

Cape Town local Alain "Commander" Ilunga (1-0) will make his EFC Africa debut at EFC 13. The Panther Fighting Arts fighter submitted Mbasa Cakta at CFL 01 to win his first professional fight and attract the attention of the EFC. With an impressive amateur fighting record and a successful start to his professional career behind him, Ilunga will now have the opportunity to prove he is the real deal when he faces van Staden.
