ONE Atomweight Grand Prix winner and number one contender for the ONE Atomweight Championship Stamp Fairtex has been selected as ONE championship’s 2021 Female MMA Fighter of the year. The announcement was made by the promotion through their website last day.

Starting the year with a setback

Stamp had a memorable year in 2021 which saw her pick up multiple wins. The former ONE Atomweight Kickboxing and Muay-Thai champion started off with a fight against Alyona Rassohyna at ONE: UNBREAKABLE III on 5 February but suffered a controversial submission defeat.

This was also the first defeat in MMA for Stamp. However, she managed to put the debates to rest at ONE: EMPOWER when she went up against Rassohyna again in the opening round of the ONE Atomweight Grand Prix. Stamp secured a decisive win in the fight to move into the semi-finals where she outclassed Julie Mezabarba to secure her spot in the finals against Ritu Phogat.

Winning the ONE Atomweight Grand Prix

There was a lot of hype surrounding the showdown between Stamp Fairtex and Ritu Phogat and much to the surprise of everyone, Stamp submitted Ritu in the second round of their match to win the ONE Atomweight Grand Prix and a shot at the ONE Atomweight Title against Angela Lee.

If she manages to win the ONE Atomweight title from Angela Lee, Stamp will become the first athlete to win titles in three different disciplines in ONE Championship as she has already claimed the Kickboxing and Muay-Thai titles in the promotion.
