Amanda Lino and Jacqualine Trosee will headline EFC 60 in the inaugural EFC women's Flyweight title fight on Saturday 10 June in Durban.

'Mad Dog' Lino (2-1-0) will step into the Hexagon as the favourite in front of her home crowd having beaten 'Demolition Jacqui' Trosee (2-1-0) via TKO in the first round at EFC 47 last year.

Since then, Lino has been out of action after her initial title fight against Shana Power was cancelled - Power was ruled unfit to compete due to her weight cut.

Meanwhile, Trosee has risen from her loss to Lino and had her hand raised at EFC 56 in December when she beat Power via unanimous decision.

Now, Trosee and Lino who are both aggressive stand-up fighters, will stand across each other inside the Hexagon once again in a matchup which could end in a bloody affair.

However, Lino will need to shake off her ring-rust early on in the first round if she intends on getting her hands on the belt.

"I've been working hard since last year ... I've been ready since then," said Lino. "I'm putting in the work and I'm really excited.

"I couldn't be happier fighting in Durban for the title. It is my home town, I will have a lot of support for this fight and having family and friends share this historical moment is very important," she said.

When the two collided last year, Lino was the aggressor and her power saw her finish the fight in just 10 seconds.

"I expected Trosee to beat Shana, even though I would have liked to fight her myself. I know Jacqui will bring her best and I wouldn't want it any other way," said Lino.

"I don' t want to face the Jacqui of old, I want to face the woman that beat Shana, so I know when I win, I have beaten the best," she said.
