FIGHTERS CORNER: THE LAUNCH OF A NEW SHOW
[Cape Town, South Africa] MMA Fundi has slowly but surely made their name known in the MMA media scene. From covering small Cape Town based events, to covering EFC World Wide when they are at Grand West, Grand Arena.
MMA Fundi in partnership with Snapsport Media and Stephen Bryan Photography, decided to get together and launch a brand new show called Fighters Corner.
Fighters Corner, as the name suggests, focuses on the fighter and their story. Here each and every fighter, regardless of code or gender, get the platform to tell their story.
In the very first episode, shot in Blouberg at the luxurious self catering apartment owned by Hein Labuschagne and Hansie Botes, A703 The Bay, we had our very first guest. None other then Faeez "Troublemaker" Jacobs.Faeez who was fresh of a very successful fight against Oumpie Sebeko, rocked up looking very smart in his gold formal blazer. This gold blazer made me realize, that this young man is destined for gold. He has been in EFC for only 7 months, yet he has had 4 fights, winning 3 and losing 1 and also receiving two very impressive fight of the night bonuses.
Jacobs gave his view on the Austin vs Dalcha fight that had some controversy to it. He also spoke about some personal matters and interests.
Getting back to Fighters Corner, one of my favourite segments of the show is "Game of Questions". This is where the fighter gets asked 10 random question that has no relation to fighting what so ever. Some of the answers are just hilarious.
Visit the MMAFundi and Fighters Corner Facebook page and give them a like. New interviews will be posted every Tuesday at 19h00. You can catch the first interview here:
