Stamp Fairtex: ‘My Goal is to Become a Champion in MMA’

Nov 7, 2019

At just 22-years old, Nong Stamp “Fairtex” has achieved much in combat sports. The current One Championship atomweight queenpin in muay Thai and kickboxing will compete for the promotion on Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila. However, she will not be taking part in a defense of either of her championships. Instead, for the second time in three months, she will step into the cage as a mixed martial artist. In the latest stage of her campaign to be the organization’s first simultaneous three-sport champion.

Stamp is a woman of few words. When asked why she chose to compete in MMA again at One Championship: “Masters of Fate,” instead of defending her championships; the answer was simple and direct.

“Right now, my highest goal is to become a champion in MMA.”

In this exclusive interview, Stamp talked about preferring to compete in MMA again, her growth as a grappler and if Bi Nguyen’s only path to beating her in Manila is in a ground battle.
