ZIMBA MAKES HISTORY


Themba Gorimbo has defeated Luke Michael to win the Eco Fight Championship Welterweight Grand Prix to become the first Zimbabwean champion in EFC history.

It took only minutes for Gorimbo to land a destructive right hook that cut Michael deeply, above his eyebrow.  With the fight nearly being called off, Michael charged for another takedown after the restart, but Gorimbo was smart and ruthless, sprawling, spinning to Michael’s back and laying down intense ground and pound until the referee stepped in and called it. 

A jubilant Gorimbo celebrated and then called out the UFC welterweight champion. “Dana White, Kamara Usman is no African. He left when he was 6 years old. Sign me and let me run the division.” 
The fight was held in South Africa.
