Stamp Fairtex gets people to type at the Fairtex Training Center
Stamp Fairtex is back in the gym practicing her grappling and submission game.
The 24-year-old fighter has a background in kickboxing and Muay Thai. Since transitioning into MMA fighting in 2018, she has steadily improved her ground game.
Fairtex Training Center shared the following video on Instagram, with a caption that read:
“The stamp gets people banging. Great BJJ day at the training center. Thank you all for riding with us.”
This is a video of the ONE Stamp Fairtex fighter wearing a Brazilian jiu-jitsu gi and blue belt while practicing an armbar submission from the mount.
Although this young fighter has a solid background in striking sports, she has learned a lot about the ground game in MMA. In 2021, she won the final match of the ONE Women’s Atomweight Grand Prix by submitting Commonwealth Gold Medalist wrestler Ritu Phogat via armbar.
She competed for an undisputed championship headlining ONE X against atomweight titleholder Angela Lee. Stamp had some early success in this fight, but was heavily outmatched. In round two, Lee finished the fight via a rear naked choke.
The future of the Fairtex stamp
Although she lost her first chance to win an undisputed MMA championship, Stamp’s compatriots support her and believe she will win a title in the future.
ONE Flyweight Muay Thai Champion Rodtang Jitmuangnon spoke to ONE in a interview and discussed the future of Stamp Fairtex:
“Yes, I think she can [still become the MMA world champion] if she has a decisive goal and continues to improve her skills and techniques. I think it’s not too difficult for her because Stamp is a hard worker. She is determined. She has proven that she has greatly improved her MMA, as seen in the World Grand Prix… Let’s keep up the good work. We still have a long way to go. The goddess of victory did not smile at us this time.”
Rodtang will be competing this Friday May 20th at ONE 157 in the Muay Thai Flyweight Grand Prix.
Stamp, meanwhile, has plenty of time to continue improving. She made her professional debut at the age of 19 and has since won world championships in kickboxing and muay thai.
Stamp Fairtex will likely be back in the ONE circle later in 2022, but no official fight has been announced yet. She recently said on Instagram:
“After I return to camp, I will train harder and come back a better version.”
