Despite Bi Nguyen’s talents, Stamp Fairtex is considered to be a strong competitor, having previously won titles at the ONE Atomweight Kickboxing and Muay Thai event.
In addition, the Thai fighter enjoys a significant height advantage as she stands at 1.57 metres tall, as opposed to the Vietnamese fighter who is just 1.50 metres tall.
If Bi Nguyen is able to beat her strong Thai rival, she will become only the second Vietnamese MMA fighter to win a title at the ONE Championship MMA event.
Previously, Bi Nguyen has chalked up three wins over MMA fighters Dwi Ani Retno Wulan of Indonesia, Bozhena Antoniyar of Myanmar, and Pujar Tomar of India. VOV
