The inaugural MTK Global MMA card will take place on Sunday 13th May at Indigo at the O2 Arena in London, England. The promotion is stacking the card full of exciting young talent making noise in the UK’s regional promotions.
The card will feature the Mixed Martial Arts debut of 3-time Muay Thai world champion Charlie “Boy” Peters. The Double K representative is currently 17-11-6 in Muay Thai competition. Peters recently traveled to the USA to work on his Jiu-Jitsu at 10th Planet Austin, where he trained with Eddie Bravo black belt Marvin Castelle and UFC veteran Carlos Condit. The current MTGP welterweight champion is also scheduled to defend his title against Saemapetch Fairtex in Muay Thai competition at Lion Fights 41 on Saturday 7th April.

The fight card will feature up and coming talent from the UK’s amateur MMA ranks. LFC lightweight champion Joe Draper (4-1) is set to fight on the card after scoring a first-round knockout against Issac Segers to capture the title in December. Undefeated Perry Starbuck (3-0) will feature on the card after making a name for himself in Dave O’Donnell’s WCMMA promotion. Starbuck trains alongside Kieran Keddle and Charlie Peters at the Double K gym in New Eltham. Jordan “Pretty Boy” Powell (2-1) will be looking to rebound from the first loss of his career on the card. Powell recently challenged for the vacant WCMMA featherweight title against Will Drewitt. Team Titan’s Luis Gonzalez will return to action for the first time since 2016. Gonzalez (6-4) is a veteran of the UK’s UCMMA and Shock n’ Awe promotions.
