Full Metal Dojo 15: ‘Come out to Play’ is set for the Insanity Nightclub in Bangkok on November 4th and Meas Meu will be on the card. The undefeated Cambodian bantamweight is set to take on Malaysia’s Allen Chong, a veteran of the UFC backed reality TV show called ‘The Ultimate Fighter’.
Meu (5-0) fights out of Cambodian Top Team in Phnom Penh and is trained by Cambodian MMA pioneer Chan Reach. He has a background in Judo and won the televised Khmer Warrior Championship featherweight tournament in 2014.
This will be his second fight for Full Metal Dojo, which is Thailand’s biggest MMA promotion. Meu has also competed twice for ONE Championship, winning both bouts and he is excited about the prospect of fighting in Thailand for the third time this year,
“I know my opponent is a champion from Malaysia and he was with the UFC before. I know this will be a hard fight but I am determined to win and remain undefeated in MMA,” he said.
Chong (3-4) was the Malaysian Invasion MMA (MIMMA) Season 1 lightweight champion and travelled to Las Vegas to compete in the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) world championships. In 2013 was selected by the UFC to appear on The Ultimate Fighter: China.
Full Metal Dojo promoter Jon Nutt expects this to be an explosive bout between two of the best known featherweights in South East Asia,
“Allen Chong is a MIMMA champion so we know he is among the best of the best in Malaysia and training with Cung Le and all the coaches on The Ultimate Fighter is only going to have made him better. But Meas Meu is on a tear and has already made a big impression by winning two fights in Thailand this year. This is a huge fight and we are going to be streaming it live and direct from Bangkok so everyone in Cambodia can cheer for their boy.”
Full Metal Dojo (FMD) is Thailand’s top MMA promotion and features the best up and coming talent from Thailand as well as veteran fighters from all over the world. Formed in 2014, this Bangkok based organization has put on over 108 fights in four different venues.
