Alyona Rassohyna Submits Stamp Fairtex With Guillotine Choke In Main Event of ONE: UNBREAKABLE III


5 February 2021 – Singapore: The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), returned Friday with ONE: UNBREAKABLE III. The explosive card featured six compelling mixed martial arts contests, the majority of which ended in spectacular finishes.

In the main event, submission specialist Alyona Rassohyna of Ukraine overcame an impressive all-around performance from #5-ranked atomweight mixed martial arts contender Stamp Fairtex of Thailand to win by submission in the final moments of the third round.

Stamp showcased her striking superiority early, attacking Rassohyna with damaging elbows from close range and tagging her with swift punching combinations.

The Ukrainian fighter tried her best to close the gap and drag Stamp to the canvas, where she threatened with her signature armbar, but the former two-sport ONE World Champion exhibited impeccable submission defense, thwarting multiple attempts from Rassohyna.

In the third frame, a late scramble allowed Rassohyna to catch Stamp with a guillotine choke, forcing the tap with only seconds remaining. It is the first defeat on Stamp’s professional mixed martial arts record.

In the co-main event, rising Brazilian star Fabricio “Wonder Boy” Andrade put on a striking masterclass, outlasting #2-ranked bantamweight Shoko Sato across three close rounds of intense action to win by unanimous decision. The Japanese athlete shot for takedowns from range, aiming to bring matters to the ground. Andrade, however, utilized his superior striking skills to keep Sato at bay and neutralize his wrestling. A sharp elbow from Andrade opened up a cut on Sato’s forehead in the final round, scoring heavily for the Brazilian in the damage category. In the end, all three judges scored the bout in favor of Andrade.

Catalan tried his best to escape a series of sticky situations, but Sawada stuck firmly to his game plan. Near the end of the opening round, “Dragon Boy” worked his way to Catalan’s back and applied the fight-ending rear-naked choke.
