Stamp Fairtex

Stamp Fairtex is back. The Thai superstar returns to ONE Championship mixed martial arts action at ONE: Unbreakable III, a previously recorded event from the Singapore Indoor Stadium, on Friday, February 5.

The Fairtex Gym representative still has history on her mind as she looks to make an impression in the main event against Alyona Rassohyna.

The former ONE Atomweight Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Champion could become the first three-sport World Champion, but the Ukrainian is another obstacle standing in front of her. And the bout is a precursor to the ONE Atomweight World Grand Prix, which is to come later in 2021.

Rassohyna, a remarkable grappler, will hope to make an immediate impact in ONE with a main event win and state her case to be a contender for Angela Lee's gold.

Before Friday's compelling main event, relive Stamp's road to The Lion City and the ONE: Unbreakable III main event with this video by ONE that chronicles her rise as an atomweight contender.

See how the undefeated mixed martial artist has developed into a well-rounded athlete who can take the action anywhere.

The eyes of the division will be upon this match. Can the Thai star keep the train rolling, or will a Ukrainian newcomer spoil the party? It is a can't-miss bout with huge implications for the division.

The action of ONE: Unbreakable III will air for free via the B/R Live app on Friday, February 5, at 7:30 a.m. EST/4:30 a.m. PST.

That a director of my city's opera company would call me seemed a little odd. There are probably some monkeys who know more about opera than I do. But the director was inviting me to lunch, so of course I went.

It turned out the company was producing a performance of Madame Butterfly, the Puccini opera that tells the story of a doomed love between a French military officer and a geisha in early 19th-century Japan. The opera has come under fire for its stereotyped, utterly fanciful depictions of Japanese culture. The local company was trying to anticipate such criticism, and the director asked me, since I serve on the board of some organizations related to Japanese culture, what I thought.

A trained core is essential for MMA and all forms of martial arts and grappling. Bruce Lee's abdominal training is the best of both worlds. It produces a powerful explosive core and will chisel out your abs. Bruce always sought out the best exercises for strength and speed to make himself better. Over the years of training, Lee understood that all movement is generated from the center, the hips and the core. Your abdominals are the source of power to kick, punch, jump, and run. The spine also uses the core for stability.
