Chett Meyer vs Donavin Hawkey at EFC Africa 15

Prior to announcing general information about EFC Africa 15, the Extreme Fighting Championship has announced one of the big fights for their future event. The Middleweight division will play host to a titanic clash between two former light heavyweight fighters. Chett Meyer (#2 Light Heavyweight Rankings) will drop to middleweight for the first time to face Durban's Donavin Hawkey.

Chett "The Threat" Meyer

Chett Meyer (5-1) is on a three fight winning streak in the EFC's light heavyweight division. The division however lacks depth and this prompted Meyer to drop to middleweight in search of regular high level fights. Meyer will transform from an average sized light heavyweight fighter to a large middleweight and look to test himself in one of the toughest MMA divisions in South Africa.

Donavin "Bam Bamz" Hawkey

Donavin Hawkey (20-8) has had mixed results in the EFC, and carries a 1-1 record in to the fight. Once regarded as the top light heavyweight in South Africa, Hawkey has been a man on a mission since his EFC Africa 12 submission loss to Danie van Heerden, and will look to redeem himself at EFC Africa 15.

Chett Meyer and Donavin Hawkey are both established fighters looking to work their way up towards a middleweight title shot. This fight is a great opportunity for either man to put his hand up against a recognised fighter, the winner of which will be all but guaranteed a top 5 middleweight opponent in their next outing.
