Stamp Fairtex is back in the United States for another seminar tour, and even she can’t believe how many American fans she has.
Hot off the heels of her stunning ONE Women’s Atomweight MMA World Title win over South Korean star Ham Seo Hee in September, the 25-year-old has been in high demand for appearances.
Stamp became the first athlete in history to claim World Titles in three separate sports with her victory in the ONE Fight Night 14 main event.
Before winning the MMA crown, she once held the ONE Atomweight Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Championships simultaneously.
“I like that people get excited and really pay attention to what I teach. Most of the crowd would bring amazing energy,” she said.
The multi-talented martial artist has gained world-class skills across multiple disciplines in her historic career so far, and she loves passing on her knowledge to fans across the globe.
Stamp Fairtex shocked by warm welcome in the United States
ONE Championship made its historic United States debut in May armed with big-name Americans such as Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson and “Super” Sage Northcutt. But one of the biggest ovations of the night went to Stamp Fairtex.
The Fairtex representative has endeared herself to ONE Championship’s worldwide audience, not only with her exploits in the ring, but with her undeniable charisma and signature “Stamp Dance” walkout routine.

But even Stamp didn’t realize her influence on the West before landing in the U.S. for ONE Fight Night 10.
“I didn’t know I had so many fans,” she said.
“Although I’ve been to the U.S. for the seminar many times, I didn’t realize so many people know me.”
Ultimately, she blew the roof off the 1stBank Center in Colorado when she stopped home-country hero Alyse “Lil’ Savage” Anderson with a pinpoint second-round body kick.
The victory earned her an opportunity to fight for the vacant atomweight MMA strap against Ham, which she grabbed with both hands by stopping “Hamzzang” in the third round.
