Ricky Misholas is set to face American base EFC heavyweight champion Jared Vanderaa at EFC77 in Pretoria, 16 March 2019.
Misholas had this to say on the BigAl Podcast :
“I don’t know how to explain to you, my spirit is so high. Just to prove a point, to show them that the EFC is not a stepping stone, and Africa is not a stepping stone for all of these international fighters, where they can [say], ‘Okay let me just fight two more, or three fights in the EFC, so I can go for Bellator or the UFC, or whatever, no. That’s what I’m going to prove. I want to show Vanderaa they were wrong with what they were thinking, and show the whole world that the EFC is not a stepping stone. So they come here, you know what … there is going to be a big surprise for this fight. I’m so motivated and I had a camp, as I said, it was a short-notice camp, but the thing is I pushed myself over the limit and we are looking forward to this.”
Misholas went on to pay tribute to his combat brothers of the DRC as wel as dropping a bombshell about droppingto Light Heavyweight after this bout .
