Alyona Rassohyna

Stamp Fairtex and Alyona Rassohyna take centerstage in Singapore at ONE Championship's next event — ONE: Unbreakable III, a previously recorded event, on Friday, February 5.

And the atomweights did not shy away from making their intentions known in a recent video from ONE Championship taking a more in-depth look at the main event clash. While the two both recounted what has led them to the battle, they also made emphatic statements of what fans should expect in the match.


Stamp was forthright about her struggles in 2020 but promised that the difficulties have only made her a better and more focused athlete. And she will need to be against her Ukrainian opponent.

Rassohyna is a submission specialist, and she made a point-blank prediction for the bout. "As always, I'll win via first-round armbar," said Rassohyna.

With double-digit submissions to her credit, Rassohyna could jump right into the title picture with another finish against a top global star.

But Stamp is eyeing a knockout to show the world that she is back and ready to contend in the ONE Atomweight World Grand Prix later in 2021. The Thai striker is planning to give it everything she has and come forward with her aggressive style to put her opposition under pressure.

Only one can be right, and it will all be decided in the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Fireworks are guaranteed between these two finishers.

ONE: Unbreakable III airs for free on B/R Live at 7:30 a.m. EST/4:30 a.m. PST on Friday, February 5.

Are you ready to enter the martial arts matrix?

Last year, COVID-19 forced us all to find new ways of doing familiar things--including teaching and training. While many schools unfortunately died out due to the pandemic, some schools also found new life with unique solutions. One of the popular options that schools found was online training.

Let's kick the elephant out of the room first. Of course online training can never fully replace in-person training in the martial arts world. Thankfully, it also doesn't have to. What many schools found last year was that they could survive, at least temporarily, with video conference tools and virtual sessions. What some of the same schools are finding this year is that they can help their schools thrive as normalcy slowly ebbs back into view and they are now equipped to offer online services as an auxiliary tool.

Nowadays, there are so many different ways martial arts info is spread online. We can indulge in martial art blogs, podcasts, and even online classes hosted by schools many miles away. Even before the pandemic put us all in front of a computer screen, the internet has been dramatically changing the world and how communication is disseminated. Over the years, the internet has become one of the most powerful pieces of equipment in a martial artist's toolbox.

Mind you, powerful doesn't mean perfect. Let's delve into the good and the bad of the martial artist's modern day tool!
