Stamp Fairtex could also be ONE’s first two-sport world champion, however Jihin Radzuan nonetheless doesn’t purchase the hype.
Forward of their ladies’s atomweight conflict at ONE on Prime Video 2: Xiong vs Lee III, which airs stay on US primetime, ‘Shadow Cat’ claimed that she’s not likely impressed by the Thai celebrity’s set of expertise.

Radzuan rose up the ranks and secured the fifth spot within the division’s rankings after profitable her final three fights. The Final MMA Academy standout isn’t completed but. She desires to take Stamp’s place as the highest contender at 115 kilos.
