The exciting new all-styles martial-arts hand-to-hand combat tournament Last Fighter Standing is proud to announce an exciting exhibition fight has been added to the show lined up for the Ticketpro Dome on the 15th of October.
Heavyweight finalist Rudolph Van Heerden comes from a family of fighters, including ex world champ Chris Van Heerden, and MMA fighter Danie Van Heerden. Chris will be attending as a VIP guest, but now it’s about to become a family gathering, as Danie is going to be fighting an exhibition match, representing South Africa against a formidable Russian opponent in Reinis Porozovs who holds a belt in K1 Latvia and an has extensive professional record of 16 fights and 14 wins.
There has been much controversy regarding Danie’s recent exit from another martial arts organisation, with claims of racist posts. The LFS organisation is committed to allowing all fighters equal opportunities, regardless of colour, race, or gender, and (unlike some other fight organisations) the LFS doesn’t condone or financially sponsor ‘smacktalk’ – which can lead to controversial comments that escalate on social media platforms. This particular incident was part of a friendly ongoing to-and-fro between the two fighters, who bear no animosity towards each other and have put this incident behind them (this is evident in the recent videos published on social media). The LFS will continue to give all its fighters equal opportunity to discuss their background and upcoming fights in a respectful and humble manner… A manner befitting of new South Africa.
The LFS organisation actively welcomes any fighters to fight for their city and possibly their country and has finalists from many ethnicities competing together on October 15th.
Tickets for the LFS South African National and 4-Nations Championship, taking place on Saturday 15 October at The Ticketpro Dome, Northgate, are for sale at Ticketpro. Highlights of the show will be broadcast live on e.tv in a two-hour special on the night.
