Press release:

Back on June 7, a new MMA promotion was born: Full Metal Dojo.

Surrounded by the intense energy of Seduction Nightclub in the heart of Patong City, Full Metal Dojo’s inaugural fight card featured a litany of warriors from around the globe. The event saw fighters from Thailand, Cambodia, Finland, the United States, France, and other countries enter the caged-dojo for the first time in Phuket.

And it’s happening again.

FMD2: Protect Your Neck brings a double-dose of hardcore MMA action back to Phuket with a blazing fight card meant for the fight-rabid masses. With an array of entertainment that surrounds the entire fight card, FMD2: Protect Your Neck promises to be one of the most interesting MMA events in Asia with a historic women’s bout and fighters from all over entering the cage.

Headlining the event will be a catchweight bout between Afghanistan’s Baz Mohammad Mubariz (3-2) and Sweden’s “Creepy” Kristoffer Persson (2-3). Both fighters regularly train in Thailand with Baz sharpening his skills at Phuket Top Team (by way of Afghanistan’s Team Diesel Diva) and “Creepy” Kris hailing from Legacy Gym in Ubon Ratchathani and Boracay, Philippines.

The fight card will also feature the debut of the promotion’s female division as Amp “Pocket Rocket” Boonsorn takes on Kaewjai Prachumwong in a strawweight bout (115 lbs/52kg). The historic fight marks the first-ever women’s MMA bout featuring two Thai contenders competing on home soil. FMD2: Protect Your Neck will showcase Amp and Kaewjai, both considered pioneers of the women’s MMA movement in Thailand.

The rest of the fight card will feature warriors that are based across Asia as well as some returning heroes. In the inaugural Full Metal Dojo show, Chatmongkhon “Noom” Simma (of Legacy Gym in Ubon Ratchathani) put away his fellow Bangkok-native, Sarawut “The Monkey” Petsing, in the first round via TKO. Noom will look to continue his winning streak when he takes on Tanabadee “Ninjaman” Supparukephusakun in an intriguing bantamweight (145lbs/66kg) bout.

The fan-favourite Muay Chaiya specialist Detchadin “Phetsingkorn” Sornsirisuphathin also returns to continue his run in the Dojo, this time against Cambodia’s Chan Heng (AFighter Gym) – a fighter looking to redeem his loss in the Dojo against Alex Schild. In their previous bouts Phetsingkorn defeated Manaschai “Lee.O” Promsawad by kicks to the head, while Chang Heng was forced to tap to a rear naked choke.

Jon Nutt, Asia’s most famous fight personality, will lead audiences across the spectrum of talent at Full Metal Dojo. Fresh off his ventures with Vice and Coconuts Bangkok, the silk-voiced American is bringing his no-holds-barred style to a promotion full of fighters that simply want to bang it out in a cage. Whether it’s singing the Thai King’s anthem in the native-tongue or the uncompromising post-fight interview, Nutt’s in-your-face style is sure to keep fans clamoring for more.
