Full Metal Dojo events are synonymous with hard hitting cageside MMA action from the best fighters in the region, in a nightclub atmosphere of borderline madness, built on a solid foundation of honesty and integrity, and topped off with a sprinkling of cinematic class and the laughter of ecstatic fans. But where has Full Metal Dojo been all year, you may be wondering?

A report from Fox Sports Asia states, “For one, they have been working with FOX Sports Asia on a whole host of combat sports-related videos and written content for their digital platforms, including the FOX Sports Asia Facebook page.

“This includes the popular Eat, Pray, Fight series which features combat sports events, personalities and travel across Asia, as well as the Live from Bangkok MMA and combat sports webcast hosted by Kingdom President Jon Nutt.

“Kingdom have also been busy lending their expertise in MMA event production and marketing to various events in Thailand that they have been co-producing, co-marketing and consulting on this year. These include:

“Fairtex Training Center in Pattaya, Thailand’s Muay Thai & MMA Smoker events, which gives a chance for young fighters to get experience in amateur Muay Thai & MMA fights at one of the world’s top combat sports gyms, which expanded from Muay Thai into MMA and BJJ.”
