Aptly named Fight Fest: Heavy Artillery, this 4th edition is an all striking affair which we the organiser feel is a better leverage to draw crowd compared to grappling (this also coincided that Copa De Borneo was held a week prior). Not just in terms of crowds but in participation, this is also the highest so far with a total of 174 fighters participated (110 from Muaythai, 64 from Fight Fest).
Sabah Muaythai is taking this opportunity to host SABAH MUAYTHAI EXPO: ROAD TO SAGA which will serve as a platform for Muaythai Fighters of age 15 to 20 with less than 5 bouts to fight & stand a chance to be selected for potential selection in SAGA games this December. This project is spear headed by Coach @Dhilon Tahing who also recently won Best State Coach Award by MSN.

Joel Nickolson is a seasoned MMA athlete, with a 7-3-0 amateur record. Although he is well versed in grappling from his training in Brazilian Luta Livre but striking is first nature to him as his based is TaeKwon-Do.
