EFC, the Extreme Fighting Championship, which has been trading under EFC AFRICA since inception in 2009, has announced that the organisation is expanding worldwide, and will feature fights with top MMA athletes from across the globe.

Formerly only signing athletes who were born in, or fighting out of Africa, EFC has conquered the continent and created a stable of over 120 of the best MMA athletes competing in the EFC Hexagon in seven weight classes.

The new global line-up will feature in EFC’s upcoming portfolio of event programming, which is distributed internationally by Content Television.

“We have global television broadcast deals on every continent. EFC is already shown in over 110 countries,” said EFC President Cairo Howarth. “EFC has signed and built up the best African MMA athletes to be household names and to be competitive on a global scale. Now we are excited to be pitting our current stars and champs against MMA stars from the rest of the world in true world championship bouts.”
