South African Championship
Last Fighter Standing Breaks the Mold
The thrill of the fighting championship rocked the Ticketpro Dome on 15 October 2016
Expectations were exceeded by far, minds were blown and the fighting action was next level at Last Fighter Standing (LFS) which took place at the Ticketpro Dome in Joburg on Saturday. From the phenomenal Vegas style opening ceremony right through to the left hooks and right upper cuts, knock-outs and submission style wins, the caliber of sports and entertainment on show was unlike anything ever seen before on South African shores. LFS Spokesperson, Darius Jakovchuk: “What an incredible weekend of fighting. The skill the fighters brought to the table was off the chain. The response from the audience, which numbered over 5 000 has been nothing short of phenomenal. Having an incredible opening ceremony and performances by SA’s best musicians like MiCasa really added the cherry on top. We can’t wait for next year’s LFS, we’ll be making it even bigger and better!”
