FMD6 Fight Reports
FMD6 saw Full Metal Dojo crown their first ever Champion, not with the traditional belt used in boxing and most MMA promotions, but with a Japanese katana sword. The bout saw two FMD fan favourites compete for the Bantamweight title, with Thailand’s National Wrestling Team member, Kritsada “Dream Man” Konsrichai from Chmuporn Wrestling, facing Detchadin “Phetsingkorn” Srosirisuphathin, from Bangkok’s Muay Chaiya gym.
After some roundhouse kicks and sparring, Kritsada’s superior wrestling skills got him a successful takedown and he was able to get full mount on his rival, delivering some crushing elbows and opening up a huge gash on his forehead, forcing referee Olivier Coste to stop the action in the first round. A huge congratulations to Kritsada, FMD’s inaugural Champion, who showed his rivals the importance of wrestling in the MMA skillset. He will defend his title at FMD7 on October 31st.
In the co-main event, teenage MMA sensation Pongsiri “Smiling Assassin” Mitsatit from Team Quest Thailand in Chiang Mai, extended his unbeaten record to 5-0 with a dominant win over Nattawut “Storm-Fist Wild Monkey” Promrit, who’d just found out he’d had his first child moments before the fight. So huge congratulations to both young men. Pongsiri confirmed his position as one of Thailand’s top MMA prospects, with a bright future ahead of him representing The Kingdom of Thailand.
Perhaps the two most exciting fights of the night were two back-and-forth 3-round wars that went all the way to the judge’s scorecards. One saw Canadian fighter, Team Quest’s Scott “Handsome” Hudson, getting the decision over AKA Thailand in Phuket’s Russian fighter, Salim Mukhidinov, in a highly skilled match-up between two of Thailand’s top MMA gyms.
The previous fight saw Tiger Muay Thai in Phuket’s former Rajadamnern Champion, Teerayut “Saksurin Tigermuaythai” Kawrat getting the win over Raw BJJ, Bangkok’s Veerayut "Hanuman" Uttapan. It was Teerayut’s MMA debut, but with over 500 combined Muay Thai fights to he and opponent Veerayut’s names, these guys were no beginners. The fight was a fascinating look at two Muay Thai veterans who’d learned the ground game and were now fighting under FMD’s Global MMA rule set.
Chamlong Charaem from Bangkok’s Shingi Dojo, cemented his position as one of Thai MMA’s hottest prospects, with a dominant win over Yodbungjong Fairtex from Fairtex Gym in Pattaya. Chamlong extended his unbeaten MMA record to 6-0 (pro & amateur), by out-boxing the Muay Thai veteran, and catching him with a KO punch to the chin after just 2 minutes. This was his second pro fight after stunning the crowds with a come-from-behind upset win over Malaysian Invasion MMA (MIMMA) Champion and TUF China fighter, Allen Chong at Malaysian Invasion’s MMA’rr event in Phuket in June.
Tanabadee “Ninjaman” Supparukephusakun fighting out of Maximum Gym Phuket got the better of Thossawat “Doze” Akkhanithin fighting out of Thanthorng Gym in Bangkok, without some brutal ground and pound.
After some great stand-up combinations from both fighters, Egyptian Amr Elgohary, currently training in Sasiprapa Muay Thai, Bangkok, got a stunning KO over visiting German and former Management Consultant, Jan Steinbacher from FSS in Germany.
And the opening fight of the night saw Filipino Luke Moleno from the highly-regarded international Legacy Gym in Ubon Ratchathani defeat Thai Jaktan Tangjan from Bangkok’s Muchzhima and Raw BJJ teams.
