Fightfit Militia rally behind PETA

With the boom of MMA in South Africa, many of the sports top professionals are achieving celebrity status. Although being famous can be irksome at times, it does have its benefits, and is a great platform for initiating change in South Africa and the world.

Local fight team FightFit Militia is home to some of these celebrated athletes, including EFC Africa champions Demarte Pena and Costa Ioannou, as well as former EFC Africa champions Garreth McLellan and Norman Wessels. The MMA team recently joined forces with the largest animal rights organisation in the world PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) to show their support against animal cruelty. The campaign features fighters Garreth McLellan and Norman Wessels, and FFM head coach Richard Quan.
