Stamp Fairtex needs the win to get back at Angela Lee
Top-ranked contender Stamp remains first in line to challenge Lee, despite losing out to her in their main event World Title tussle at ONE X, but her position will surely be at risk should she fail to score a victory over #5-ranked Jihin.
With that in mind, we take a look at the Thai megastar’s keys to victory for the Fairtex Gym athlete as she battles to stay competitive in the stacked division on Friday night.
Find a passage to her enemy’s chin and hunt for the finish
Stamp’s Muay Thai skills are unmatched by anyone in the division, and this should be one of her go-to weapons against the Ultimate MMA Academy graduate.
The Fairtex athlete has punished countless striking talents with her slick combinations and precise power, so facing a grappling-dominant fighter like Jihin should be straightforward for the Thai if she can keep the action upright.
Stamp certainly hits harder and possesses way more different combinations than “Shadow Cat” – so she has every right to fancy her chances in “The Lion City” this Friday.

With her fight IQ, it could be only a matter of time before she derives a path towards Jihin’s chin. From there, she can strike hard and try to put the “Shadow Cat” to sleep.
Avoid the ground against “Shadow Cat”
If Stamp wants to leave the Circle with her hand raised, the equation is pretty simple. She has to avoid grappling with the Malaysian star.
Stamp may have revealed in previous media interviews that she has gained confidence in her grappling abilities, but her experience on the canvas simply doesn’t hold a candle to Jihin’s skills.
To best stuff the 24-year-old’s possible takedown attempts, she must control the distance of the battle.

Her range is key, both to keep “Shadow Cat” at bay and to implement her takedown defense, so she must stay patient and smart.
Luckily, given her Muay Thai background, Stamp will understand how to dart in and out of range. She can also use her teeps, jabs, or sidekicks to block the Malaysian martial artist from closing the distance.
