Thailand’s premier MMA promotion will be starting 2016 with a bang.
Full Metal Dojo is returning to Phuket for the first time in a year with a card that is set for the Seduction Discotheque in Patong on 10 January.
So far four of the matchups on the card have been released by the organisation. In the lightweight division two experienced fighters will go head to head when Gokhan Turkyilmaz (13-12) takes on Tommy Hayden (8-3).
There’s also a welterweight matchup between Lebanon’s Yousef Wehbe (2-2-0-1) and Trestle Tan (3-5-0-1), a Johor Bahru-based Filipino who knocked out ONE Championship welterweight Jeff Huang in just nine seconds earlier this year.
The final two matchups to have been released are both in the 115 lbs division. FMD veterans Weerayuth Pinyopon (1-1) and Wisava Kaweewarakorn (0-1) go head to head while Vietnamese debutant Ke Nhon Nguyen takes on Pakistan’s Haider Farman (0-1).
The Seduction Discotheque played host to the first two FMD cards in 2014. Since then the promotion has shifted its focus to Bangkok with the last five events all taking place in the capital city of Thailand.
