Thai star Stamp Fairtex aims to become the first three-sport World Champion in ONE history. Read about her journey and upcoming bout against Ham Seo Hee for the ONE Interim Women’s Atomweight MMA World Title.
On September 29, Thai megastar Stamp Fairtex will have the opportunity to achieve unparalleled greatness and become the first three-sport World Champion in ONE history. The 25-year-old phenom will face off against South Korean veteran Ham Seo Hee for the ONE Interim Women’s Atomweight MMA World Title in the main event of ONE Fight Night 14 on Prime Video.
Stamp Fairtex, originally a decorated Muay Thai striker, has evolved her MMA skill set over the past several years. After previously holding World Titles in kickboxing and Muay Thai, she could establish herself as one of the greatest combat sports athletes ever by adding mixed martial arts gold to her trophy case.
A Highlight-Reel Debut
Stamp made her mixed martial arts debut in July 2018 in Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series. In her first fight, she delivered a devastating head kick to Indian rising star Rashi Shinde, winning the bout in less than 20 seconds. Stamp’s victory earned her a contract to compete on ONE Championship’s global platform.
Gains Momentum On The Global Stage
Following her impressive debut, Stamp went on a three-fight run that saw her capture the ONE Atomweight Kickboxing and Muay Thai World Titles. She solidified her position as one of the best pound-for-pound strikers in the world. Stamp then surprised fans with a submission victory over Asha Roka in August 2019, showcasing her ground game skills.
Stamp continued to excel in both MMA and striking, securing three more impressive MMA wins while competing in Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Title bouts. Her momentum was briefly halted in February 2021 when she suffered her first MMA defeat against Alyona Rassohyna.
Captures The Grand Prix Silver Belt
Stamp quickly bounced back from her loss and exacted revenge on Rassohyna in the ONE Atomweight MMA World Grand Prix quarterfinals, winning by decision. She displayed an evolved tactical awareness and improvements to her ground game. In the semifinals, Stamp earned a hard-fought victory over Brazilian fighter Julie Mezabarba.
In December 2021, at ONE: WINTER WARRIORS, Stamp achieved the biggest win of her MMA career by submitting Indian wrestling sensation Ritu Phogat with an armbar. This victory earned her the prestigious silver belt and a shot at the ONE Women’s Atomweight MMA World Title.
Falls Just Short In First World Title Shot
Stamp faced longtime champion Angela Lee in March 2022 for the ONE Women’s Atomweight MMA World Title. She came out strong, launching a relentless attack on Lee. However, Lee turned the tables in the second round and secured a rear-naked choke, ending the fight. Despite the defeat, the match was recognized as ONE’s 2022 MMA Fight of the Year.
Fights Back To The Top
Since her loss to Lee, Stamp has remained active and achieved victories in both MMA and kickboxing. In September, she dominated Jihin Radzuan with a ground-and-pound attack, earning a decisive decision victory. Most recently, at ONE’s debut event in the United States, Stamp knocked out American star Alyse Anderson with a powerful body kick.
Stamp’s victory solidified her position as the division’s top-ranked contender and set the stage for her historic bout against Ham Seo Hee on September 29.
