For all you boppers out there in the big city, this Halloween weekend sees the return of the most badass event organizer in Bangkok, as Full Metal Dojo (FMD), Asia’s favorite MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) organization, sets the city to rights with FMD15: Come Out to Play powered by TripAlly.
Inspired by the 1979 cult classic movie, ‘The Warriors’, about the young street gangs of 70’s New York, FMD has invited Mixed Martial Arts gangs from gyms across Southeast Asia to converge and compete in mortal combat inside the FMD cage, to see who the true warriors are. Each gang will be wearing their own movie-inspired Bangkok motorcycle taxi vests, so you will need to decide which gang to join to survive the night. Can you dig it?
Live Facebook Broadcast
FMD15 will also be broadcast live to the world on the FMD Facebook page, www.facebook.com/fullmetaldojo, on Saturday, November 4th, from 8:30pm local time (6:30am PT / 9:30am ET / 2:30pm CET), featuring live all-star commentary.
