Professionally known as Stamp Fairtex, Natthawan Panthong (แสตมป์ แฟร์เท็กซ์), 22, has earned her sixth victory in ONE Championship. The Thai martial artist was one of the winners at “ONE: A New Tomorrow.”

Featuring six MMA matches, five Muay Thai contests and one kickboxing bout, ONE Championship held “ONE: A New Tomorrow” at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand on January 10, 2020. In the co-main event of the evening, Stamp competed in an MMA bout in the women’s atomweight division against Puja “The Cyclone” Tomar, 25, of India.

Olivier Coste served as the referee. A botched takedown attempt from Tomar led to Stamp taking her back and eventually getting to back-mount.

From there, Stamp began to punish Tomar with punches and elbows. Coste put a stop to the atomweight contest after 4 minutes and 27 seconds in the first round when the Thai contender knocked out her Indian opponent.

Winning at “ONE: A New Tomorrow” improved the professional MMA record of Magomedaliev to 4 wins and 0 loss. It was her sixth ONE Championship bout.
