KRITSADA KONSRICHAI OVERCOMES THE MUAY THAI OF DETCHADIN SROSIRISUPHATHIN.
A title was on the line in the main event of Full Metal Dojo 6 in a main event which pitted the wrestling of Kritsada Konsrichai against the Muay Thai of Detchadin Srosirisuphathin. In the end it was the former who prevailed to become the organization’s first ever champion.
Konsrichai (2-2) was rewarded for his exploits with a ceremonial sword with FMD eschewing the traditional belt. He successfully took Srosirisuphathin down midway through the opening round and then moved from side control into mount.
Srosirisuphathin (2-3) found himself on the receiving end of some hard elbows, one of which opened up a big cut above his nose. Referee Olivier Coste called a time out and with blood pouring all over the cage the doctor quickly called off the contest.
One of Thailand’s top MMA prospects was in action in the co-main event and Pongsiri Mitsatit (5-0) remains undefeated in professional competition after making short work of debutant Wisava Kaweewarakorn (0-1).
It was an easy night’s work for Mitsatit who did at least succeed in pulling off a highlight reel KO. A flying knee early in the first round connected clean with Kaweewarakorn’s chin and the Thai teenager followed up with a quick soccer kick before the referee had a chance to step in and call off the contest.
Mitsatit was appearing in the FMD cage for the third time but fans at the Insomnia Night Club in Bangkok got a glimpse at another top Thai prospect with bantamweight Chamlong Chanream fighting professional MMA on Thai soil for the very first time.
Chanream (2-0) knocked out MIMMA Season 1 winner and TUF: ‘China’ veteran Allen Chong on his pro debut and followed that up with a hugely impressive first round KO of Yodbungjong Fairtex (0-1) with a right hand knocking the Muay Thai veteran out cold.
In a welterweight contest between two high calibre fighters Canada’s Scott Hudson (5-2) when up against Russian newcomer Salim Mukhidinov (0-1). The latter was making his pro debut and is highly rated by Mike Swick and his team at AKA Thailand.
While Mukhidinov may well go on to enjoy a successful pro career he found the superior size and experience of Hudson too much to deal with and seemed to rapidly run out of ideas.
The only other fight to go the distance was between Muay Thai veterans Teerayut Kawrat (1-0) and Veerayuth Uttapan (1-1). The former fighter has held titles at both Rajadamnern and Siam Omnoi stadiums and got his MMA career off to the best possible start with a unanimous decision win.
Despite the explosion in nearby Rajaprasong which killed at least 20 people on Monday the attendance was good. The Insomnia Nightclub was packed to the rafters and promoters confirmed they would be putting on another show in Bangkok on 31 October, followed by an event in Phuket on 12 December.
