JP Joubert is the new EFC Africa light heavyweight champion

JP Joubert is the new EFC Africa light weight champion! 
The Bull defeated Norman Wessels via TKO in the second round of their light heavyweight clash at EFC 15 last night. 

JP Joubert vs Norman Wessels at EFC 15

It was not one way traffic however, as Wessels took control of the fight early, taking Joubert to the ground in the first round and landing some heavy ground and pound. Joubert looked all but beaten as the first round drew to a close, staring down at the floor at times... but he never stopped punching. 

Round two saw a strange turn around as Wessels seemed to lose momentum in the break. The two stood and traded and Joubert seemed to be back in the fight, swinging heartily at the former Heavyweight champion. Though Wessels did take control of the second for moments, it was Jouberts ability to keep punching which eventually won him the title. 

As the second round closed, both men seemed to have nothing left, out on their feet they stood and traded, spurred on by nothing but heart. Joubert landed a few big shots which eventually put Chef away and earned him the title of EFC Africa light heavyweight champion.
