Jadyson Costa (13-12-1) dominated Dallas Jakobi at EFC 13 to become the EFC Africa welterweight champion. Costa out-struck Jakobi and managed to finish him via fourth round TKO. Jadyson Costa now holds an impressive 3-0 record in the EFC and sits atop the welterweight rankings

Michiel Opperman

Michiel Opperman (10-6) has grown immensely as a mixed martial artist over the last 18 months and now holds an impressive 7 fight win streak (3-0 EFC). The former kickboxer has also developed a dangerous ground game and has submitted all three of his EFC opponents. With notable wins over Dino Bagattin and Martin van Staden, Michiel Opperman is a genuine contender for the welterweight title.

Jadyson Costa vs Michiel Opperman at EFC 16

Jadyson Costa and Michiel Opperman are very different fighters, both physically and stylistically, which makes for an interesting match-up. Costa brings a certain mystique to the Hexagon due to his impressive international resume, while Opperman brings a reputation for winnings fights that on paper he oughtn't to win.
Both men are also undefeated in the EFC and have notched up some impressive wins in their tenure with the promotion. This is a fight I am really looking forward to.


I hope Michiel smashes this little prick. What a disgraceful 'champion' and his celebratory finger to Dallas and his camp was a great advertisement for MMA in South Africa.

Michiel, send this favela back to Brazil to play soccer.

JP Joubert said he wanted to "verwoes" Chef...

This is one guy I hope that Michiel "verwoeses" when they meet.

Since EFC 12 Michiel has looked awesome.... the win against Dino was brilliant... and his walk on music is great too!

Firstly Jadyson coast is a great fighter and a man of honor, second here in Brazil there is only football, Brazil has much more good fighters there than in Africa and thirdly your comment is biased beyond a comment of a failure.
Be a man and go say it in front of jadyson, surely you are one of those morons who are only brave behind a computer monitor
