DEMARTE PENA MAKES SHOCKING ANNOUNCEMENT
[Cape Town, South Africa] 2017 has brought us the most anticipated rematch in EFC history. The build up to this fight included a reality show ,The Fighter,where we saw nothing but pure contempt between two champions, Irshaad Sayed and Demarte Pena.
All this came to an end on 16 December 2017, when Pena successfully defended his title in a convincing manner and set the record straight. He is the KING of the bantamweight division and ( I can say this with all confidence) the EFC's Pound 4 Pound best fighter of all times.
At the EFC 66 press conference Pena announced that he will be taking some time off and was not sure what he will be doing next or when he will be back. Late in December he announced the opening of his new gym, Ultimate MMA Fitness, along with friend and team mate, Themba Gorimbo.
On 4 January 2018 at 20:41, Pena made an announcement that shocked many people and left everyone wondering. He posted to twitter that he wants JP Buys to fight Sayed or the "French guy" (which I presume is Philippe Rouch, but this has not been confirmed) for the EFC bantamweight title.
What this means for Pena, we don't know yet, but will be sure to follow the story as it unfolds. See tweet below.
