The fourth installment of Full Metal Dojo is set for Live House in Bangkok on Feb. 21. Charismatic promoter Jon Nutt will be competing on the card, taking on fellow American Musa Conte in a light heavyweight match-up.
FMD has held three events this year with the first two taking place in Phuket and the most recent in Bangkok. The cards have featured a number of local fighters alongside mixed martial artists from as far afield as the U.S., Afghanistan, Iraq, Finland the Philippines and Sweden.
Nutt (0-1) is the driving force behind the promotion and, as well as his fight with Conte, the February card is also set to feature top Thai prospects Pongsiri Mitsatit (3-0) and Komrid Hanbenjapong (1-0) taking on foreign opponents at 115 pounds and 145 pounds, respectively.
Thailand is home to a number of big MMA camps including Tiger Muay Thai, Phuket Top Team, AKA, and Team Quest. While the sport is catching on amongst the local population, FMD aims to take advantage of this surge in interest.
In 2015, the promotion plans to put on six events and to set up an amateur league to give up-and-coming fighters from across the country a first taste of competitive action. For more information visit: http://www.fullmetaldojo.com/.
