I proved the haters wrong: Stamp Fairtex reflects back on 2022

Stamp Fairtex has proven over the past year that she can compete against the best of the best in mixed martial arts.

The former Muay Thai and kickboxing champion solidified her position at the top when she took on Angela Lee for the ONE Women's Atomweight World Title in 2021 after winning the ONE Women's Atomweight World Grand Prix.

Stamp came up short in her bid for the MMA championship at ONE X in March, but she appeared on the verge of winning.

She gave the current champion a heavy body hit in the first round, but Lee pulled through and rallied to win via submission in round two.

Despite feeling like her fight with Lee was the pivotal event of her 2022, Stamp recovered from her defeat to Jihin Radzuan at ONE on Prime Video 2 in October.

“My life has been pretty cool this year. First thing first, I had a big chance to face Angela Lee for the World Title. Although I lost, I didn’t regret sharing the Circle with her. I learned a great lesson from that fight. It was a big, good test for me. Plus, with my performance in that fight, I proved the haters wrong. Previously, a lot of people underestimated my MMA skills. I’ve been able to prove myself in fights and make those trolls silent. It was a great year,” she said in an interview with ONE Championship.

The all-around sport has always piqued the interest of fans, and Stamp has shown that it's much more than just a side endeavour.
