The moment you’ve all been waiting for is finally here. Asia’s favorite MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) promotion are officially back on November 3rd with FMD16: Big Trouble in Little Bangkok.

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? Check out this article on Fox Sport Asia to see what we’ve been up to.  

 

Media Weigh-in: 7pm, Friday, November 2nd, The Clubhouse Bar, Sukhumvit 23, Bangkok. Free entry. All are welcome to see the FMD16 fighters face off for the cameras. 

 

Live Broadcast: FMD16 will broadcast to the world in a dual language livestream from 8pm Thai time (6am PT / 9am ET / 2pm CET) on Fox Sports Asia at facebook.com/foxsportsasia with English commentary from Brad Robinson, the veteran Asian-based MMA fighter, alongside Asia’s Got Talent host Marc Nelson.
