New Professional MMA Promotion Company Brings the Heat in Patong Beach
BANGKOK, THAILAND (May 8, 2014) – Full Metal Dojo is proud to announce its first ever Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) event scheduled for June 7, 2014 at Seduction Disco in Patong on the island of Phuket, Thailand. The event will feature the largest MMA fight card ever seen in Phuket, with 14 different international fighters set to participate.
Famed for its endless beaches and crystal clear waters, in recent years Phuket has seen a boom in combat sports gyms as fighters from across the planet converge to train with the world’s best in Muay Thai and MMA. With dozens of world-class gyms, Phuket has emerged as a modern day Sparta – a tropical island with the biggest concentration of the world’s mightiest warriors.
“We are about to take this beautiful island and the sport of MMA to another level with our brand new professional Mixed Martial Arts Promotion,” said Jon Nutt, CEO of Full Metal Dojo (FMD) and a well-known face in the world of Southeast Asian MMA. “For far too long, MMA in Thailand has been geared towards an English speaking audience. We aim to break that trend, flip it on its head and bring MMA to the real Thai mass audience. Get ready to enter… the Full Metal Dojo.”
FMD will host 7 MMA bouts, featuring both professional and amateur fighters from around the world. The schedule for the event includes:
June 6th FMD Weigh-in Event – Joe’s Downstairs Restaurant, 223/3 Prabaramee Road, Patong Beach, Phuket.
June 7th FMD Fight Card – Seduction Beach Club & Disco, 39/1 Soi Bangla Rat-Utit 200 Pee Rd, Patong Beach, Phuket.

FMD After Party – Seduction Beach Club & Disco, 39/1 Soi Bangla Rat-Utit 200 Pee Rd, Patong Beach, Phuket.

The event will be professionally recorded with commentary in both English and Thai, and available to view on YouTube shortly after the event.
