Rankings always seem to be a hot topic when it comes to match making in MMA. Although there is no science to these rankings , we thought it would be fun to map out the divisions in the EFC to try and establish who is in the conversation and who is not.
Important to note, we base these rankings on people that are clearly active in the EFC , not on Hiatus or retired. Things considered would be win streaks, finish rates, opponents beat and so on.
Champion – Nkazimulo “Zuluboy” Zulu (9-2-1)
- BK Masunyane (5-0)
- Gary Joshua (4-0)
- Marino Cutendana (5-3)
- Dansheel Moodley (4-1)
- Coner Hignett (5-3) (Martin De ber 7-4, could also feature at 5 )
Top of the pile Is fan favorite and high flying prospect BK Masunyane, He was set to face the Flyweight king “Zuluboy” but had to withdraw due to injury. IN second spot the “Newbie” in the flyweight divivion is Gary Joshua. Joshua has long been touted as a future champion and with contenders falling at the way side it looks like his day with Zulu might soon arrive. Marino was another contender who had to withdraw from a date with the Champ but illness got the better of him, However , we can not talk about flyweight contenders with out mentioning His name. Dansheel Moodley is riding a 3 fight streak now and has looked impressive of late. One more big win could see the Durban based fighter right in the mix. at the foot of the rankings was a tough choice between Martin De Beer and Coner Hignett. There is argument for both to crack the top 5 but perhaps their respective next bouts could decide that.
