UFC IN SOUTH AFRICA
South African MMA is coming a long way and is being spearheaded by the EFC Africa promotion which brings together some of the best fighters on the continent. We never really notice the amount of hype generated by our local MMA brand, probably because they’ve only recently started airing their fights on e-tv, but we shouldn’t be surprised by the amount of attention the continents best fight promotion is getting.
And when uncle Dana says he’s gonna do something he usually delivers, this is what he had to say,
Actually, mixed martial arts is huge in South Africa right now. There’s a show down there now that I just heard about that is doing 1.2 million viewers every time it’s on. So the sport is booming all over the world, and yeah, South Africa is next. That’s where we’re going.
I hope the UFC figure out some kinda television deal that’ll bring their fights straight to our living rooms.
If the world’s largest and best MMA promotion can come over to South Africa it will have a massive effect on the state of affairs as far the fight business goes, welcome to the big leagues!
