After a 2-year sabbatical, Soldierboy the face of South African MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) and the EFC (Extreme Fighting Championships) for over a decade is set to make his comeback at EFC in March 2019. The MMA superstar who made history by being the ﬁrst South African based athlete to win at an international promotional the UFC (Ultimate Fight Championships) is excited to continue his legacy in SA where it all began.
His return will form part of a journey starting with “The Fighter” series set to air on SABC 3 in 2019 against S1 winner Brendan Lesar and is set to start ﬁlming in in early Jan.

Fans will be treated to two main card bouts that will see ﬁnalist on ﬁnalist and coach vs coach ﬁght for the coveted title “Fight of The Night.”
“After much needed time off I am excited to start this journey and to get back in the cage! I am super focused and hungry to show the fans what I am capable.
