Kruger's fighting record:

With a professional record of seven wins and three losses, Tinkerbell is looking to finally claim the elusive Middleweight belt. It will be his third shot at the title, having already lost to Garreth McLellan and Yannick Bahati. He will also be looking to bring gold back to his House of Tinkerbell Gym in Springs, a feat that his opponent doesn't seem to have any trouble with.

Seabi's fighting record:

Seabi's Brothers In Arms Gym has already claimed three EFC titles, and they will be looking to claim a fourth when their fearless leader steps into the cage. A veteran of the sport, Seabi boasts a record of eight wins and five losses, according to EFC Worldwide. Four of his wins have come by TKO and the other four by decision.

The rest of the card is not to be missed as well. In the co-main event, South Africa's Roedi Roets returns to take on the DRC’s August Kayambula.

There's also action in the women's division as two athletes make their professional debuts, when South Africa's Nicole van Wyk takes on Kenya's Felista Mugo, per IOL.
