Stamp Fairtex is set to fight Alyona Rassohyna in the ONE Atomweight Grand Prix which will kick start at ONE: Empower on September 3, 2021.

While progressing into the next round of the Grand Prix is one thing that is motivating Stamp, when it comes to the bigger picture, she is looking to avenge a controversial loss that she suffered.

“This fight means so much to me. Apart from being the largest tournament of female mixed martial artists, it is my opportunity to correct what I did wrong in the last fight. I want to prove that I’m really better than her and can defeat her. I’m doing whatever it takes to win this fight,” she noted in a recent interview with ONE Championship.

Stamp and Alyona fought back at ONE: UNBREAKABLE II in February and it was Alyona that came out on top with a submission victory.

“I didn’t mean to tap out. In that position, I did what I had learned from my training. To survive the choke, we have to pull the opponent’s face off. At the moment, I could still breathe. I was trying to reach her face, but that made the referee misunderstand that I was tapping out, unfortunately. Anyway, I do understand that the referee’s reaction was for the safety of the athletes,” Stamp recalls.

She concluded by saying that she has learned from the fight and that she will be going the extra mile to ensure victory this time around.

“My last experience taught me that I have to take a chance and finish the fight right away when there is an opportunity. I will do whatever I have to for this fight to leave the cage with my arm raised,” Stamp concluded.
