Top Thai prospects taste victory at Full Metal Dojo 6 in Bangkok

Full Metal Dojo (FMD) 6 took place at the Insanity Nightclub in Bangkok last Saturday (Aug. 22, 2015) and in the main event, Detchadin Srosirisuphathin stopped Kritsada Konsrichai in the opening round to earn himself a brand new samurai sword and the right to be called the organization's inaugural 135-pound champion.

Detchadin and Kritsada are both FMD veterans who are extremely popular with the Thai audience and the headline fight pitched the Muay Thai of the former against the wrestling of the latter. The event came at the end of a week in which 20 people were killed by a bomb in Bangkok, but still attracted a close-to-capacity crowd.

Krtisada was the biggest winner of the night after taking Detchadin down, moving from side control into mount and then unleashing a barrage of elbows. One of them opened up a nasty looking cut and the fight was stopped at 3:31 with the winner improving to 2-2 and the loser dropping to 2-3.

Two Thai prospects cemented their burgeoning reputations as fighters to watch with impressive first round stoppage wins. In the co-main-event Pongsiri Mitsatit moved up to 5-0 after putting away newcomer Wisava Kaweewarakorn with a flying knee followed by a soccer kick that saw referee Dana Blouin diving in to save the stricken fighter from further punishment.

Earlier in the night, Chamlong Chanream showed why he is so highly touted after knocking out debutant Yodbungjong Fairtex with a perfectly timed right hook which left the Muay Thai veteran unconscious for several minutes.

Next up for FMD is a show in Bangkok on October 31st after which the promotion will be returning to Phuket on December 11th.
