A day after appearing as a guest in Episode 6 of The Dan Nicholl Show, EFC heavyweight fighter Andrew “One Gear” van Zyl reclaimed his heavyweight title at EFC 39 at GrandWest in Cape Town.

According to Sport24, One Gear put in a dream performance by scoring a spectacular one punch KO over Brendon Groenewald to reclaim the heavyweight title:

The two began at a blistering pace, exchanging massive punches that ended with Van Zyl connecting a left-right combo that sent Groenewald to the canvas after only 32 seconds. Never one to mince his words, Van Zyl stated in his post-fight interview, “I came to throw punches and that is exactly what I did.”
