EFC 55 MEDIA DAY: THE WOLF VS WHITE TIGER


"The wolf is not afraid of the dog, but doesn't like the sound of his barking"

It's been nearly two years in the making and the time has finally arrived. The biggest fight in the history of EFC will finally hit the shores of Cape Town. If you don't know what I'm referring to then you've probably been hiding under a rock for the past 18 months.


Friday 11 November will be a day that has been brewing in the fine oaks of the MMA wine cellars, and as we all know, wine tastes better with age. So too has this long awaited encounter fermented and now it's finally time to pop the cork and enjoy brewing of an evolving rivalry.

"Wolves don't lose sleep over the opinions of sheep"

That's right, Demarte "The Wolf'" Pena and Irshaad "White Tiger" finally meet inside the hexagon, and at the media day this past Saturday, we had a glimpse of what to expect as these two literally had to separated by force. Watch this:

"Fate whispers to the wolf, 'You cannot withstand the storm'. 
The wolf whispers back, 'I am the storm' "

There's a saying on the Cape Flats that goes, "when two killers meet, one must die", and by the look of things, this might just be the case #wink.



"The impact of an attacking tiger can be compared to that of a piano
 falling on you from a second story window, 
but unlike the piano the tiger was designed to do this, 
and the impact is only the beginning."

This fight is definitely a fan-favourite and you could see the anticipation among the fans. We decided to ask the fans who they backed and who they thought would take the win. Here's what they had to say:

"Wooing the press is an exercise roughly akin to picnicking with a tiger, 
You might enjoy the meal, but a tiger always eats last."
