Heavy metal guitarist Zoltan Bathory of the hard-hitting band FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH recently stopped by UFC/TUF‘s Kyle Watson‘s gym, Watson Martial Arts in St. Louis, Missouri, for a session with the MMA fighter. Before a metal-filled evening, Bathory, a successful judo and Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner, stopped by to roll with Watson and teach some students technique.
A short clip of the pair’s training session can be viewed at this location.
Kyle is returning to the ring after his last bout against John Makdesi in the UFC in which he lost via spinning back fist.
Watson will be fighting February 3 at the upcoming “Cage Warriors” event.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH fans are able to get the brand new cover art for the band’s current album, “American Capitalist”. It features an illustration of the group’s ubiquitous “mascot,” Knucklehead, over the backdrop of Times Square in New York City.
The new Knucklehead illustration only replaces the regular edition album version of “American Capitalist”, while the deluxe edition artwork remains the same.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH recently released the second single from “American Capitalist”, “Remember Everything”, which is rapidly shooting up the Active Rock chart.
“American Capitalist” debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 chart, selling 91,000 copies in its first week of release. Both the chart and sales numbers were career highs for the group.
