: One performance in Bangkok at ONE: DREAMS OF GOLD last Friday caught Jihin “Shadow Cat” Radzuan’s eyes.
The martial artist - who normally does not callout an opponent - hopes to test herself against that particular athlete in a mixed martial arts bout.
“I’d love to test myself against Stamp Fairtex,” she said.
“A match against Stamp will not only be good for me, but it’ll be rewarding for her too. I can test my striking against her, and she can test her grappling game versus me.”
“I know my opponents will not get easier, and I can guarantee that should it happen, it will be a great contest.”
Stamp put on a jaw-dropping performance at Bangkok’s Impact Arena against Asha “Knockout Queen” Roka.
The ONE Atomweight Kickboxing and Muay Thai World Champion submitted her Indian opponent at the 1:29 mark of the third round to get the first submission win of her mixed martial arts career.
Following the win, the 21-year-old athlete shared her desire to remain in the discipline.
But Jihin feels that Stamp needs to make loads of improvements in mixed martial arts.
“In my opinion, if Stamp matches with somebody with a supreme grappling or ground game, she cannot fight the way she did in Bangkok,” the 20-year-old Johor Bahru atomweight sensation said.
“You will be open to a lot of takedowns. The atomweight division is packed with several world-class talents, but I’m sure with proper training, she will be able to take them on.”
Jihin, who is coming off a highlight-reel performance against Jomary Torres in Kuala Lumpur, is open to the idea of going up against Stamp under the ONE Super Series banner.
Just like Stamp, Jihin wants to reach to the pinnacle of the atomweight division and get a shot at “Unstoppable” Angela Lee’s ONE Atomweight World Title.
“I’ve always fought in Muay Thai and grappling competitions too, so I can adapt to either sport.”
“She’s a champion, but I’m sure I can put my skills to the test against her in any martial arts.”
ONE Championship, the world’s largest martial arts organization, makes a trip to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam next for ONE: IMMORTAL TRIUMPH on Friday, 6 September.
