Norman Wessels vs JP Joubert at EFC 15

EFC Africa 15 will host the EFC's first ever light heavyweight title fight. The fight will pit former EFC Africa heavyweight champion Norman Wessels against JP Joubert to determine the best light heavyweight in the country.

Norman "Chef" Wessels 

Norman Wessels (5-2) looked impressive at EFC 13 where he defeated Dain Neveling in convincing fashion. Wessels, made the drop to light heavyweight after losing his heavyweight title to Ruan Potts, and looked extremely comfortable at the lower weight. Norman Wessels (#1 Light heavyweight rankings) will now have the chance to become the first EFC fighter to hold championship titles in two weight divisions.

JP "The Bull" Joubert

JP Joubert (3-2) is on a three fight win streak in the EFC. Joubert, also a former heavyweight, defeated Danie van Heerden, Gina Ifuki and Jeremy Scheepers to earn himself the #3 Light heavyweight ranking and a shot at the light heavyweight title.

Norman Wessels vs JP Joubert at EFC 15

Norman Wessels brings a wealth of experience to this fight, having fought in two title fights already. Joubert however will not be intimidated by Chef's record and will be a very game opponent. These fighters have two very different fighting styles, but share a common goal - to become the first EFC Africa light heavyweight champion. As with most title fights, this should be a cracker.
