Leading combat sports equipment and apparel brand Fairtex has been named as the official equipment partner of The MMA Fight Academy, an exciting new reality project helmed by MOLA in association with Cage Warriors. 

Backed by industry heavyweights including Cage Warriors President (and manager of UFC stars including Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett) Graham Boylan, and champion trainer Mark Fiore, The MMA Fight Academy is an exciting new series documenting what it takes to create a team of MMA fighters to compete in Bali’s inaugural MMA competition. 

Following trials in South-East Asia, Europe and America, selected team members will experience an all-expenses-paid, twelve-week fight camp in San Diego, California, before competing for huge cash prizes and contracts with Europe’s leading MMA organisation. 

Originally founded in Thailand in 1958, Fairtex is now firmly established as a leading provider of martial arts gloves, apparel and clothing worldwide.

In addition to becoming the official equipment partner of The MMA Fight Academy, Fairtex have also extended their agreement to provide the iconic Cage Warriors yellow gloves for a further year. 

“Fairtex and Cage Warriors have a lot in common…” said CW President Graham Boylan. 

“In addition to a rich history, both brands are known as a symbol of excellence within their field.”

“It’s the perfect fit to have Fairtex as the official glove of Cage Warriors for another year, and to welcome them onboard as the official equipment partner of The MMA Fight Academy.”

“We are very excited with the expansion and energy Cage Warriors always put into the sport…” said Fairtex CEO Chano Nurmakin

“After watching “The Yellow Gloves” documentary from Cage Warriors and learning about the vision and deep history of the show, we could not hesitate to be part of The MMA Fight Academy, which will provide high value content to the audience and continue our relationship not only with Cage Warriors as their official glove, but also as the official equipment partner of The MMA Fight Academy.”

“Cage Warriors is one of the greatest shows on this planet – with a long history – and we are proud to be a part of it.”

The MMA Fight Academy will begin filming in early 2023, with further details to be announced in the coming weeks and months.
