Martin van Staden vs Dino Bagattin at EFC Africa 15

EFC Africa 15 will feature a long anticipated welterweight fight between Martin van Staden and Dino Bagattin. The two welterweights have twice been slated to square off, but injuries have thus far prevented the matchup. Lets hope that this time MMA fans will be treated to a great fight between two of the countries top welterweight fighters.

Martin "The Punisher" van Staden

Martin van Staden (18-6) suffered his first EFC loss to Michiel Opperman at EFC 13. The Punisher (#2 Welterweight rankings) who was on a three fight winning streak, will look to bounce back against Dino Bagattin and keep himself within reach of a welterweight title shot.

Dino "The Lion" Bagattin

Dino Bagattin (9-2) has won 4 of his last 5 fights, losing only to Michiel Opperman at EFC 12. The Lion, who recently won a split decision against Francois Kabulu at EFC 13, will look to build on this momentum and work himself back up to the top of the welterweight division.

Martin van Staden vs Dino Bagattin at EFC 15

Martin van Staden and Dino Bagattin find themselves in a very similar position. Having both recently lost to Michiel Opperman, the two fighters are looking to rebuild their way towards a title shot. With Opperman set to face Costa at EFC 16, the winner of this fight will certainly be in the EFC matchmakers minds when looking for the next welterweight title contender.
