Stamp Fairtex believes Rodtang will beat Demetrious Johnson at ONE X
Stamp Fairtex has the opportunity of a lifetime ahead of her on Saturday as she headlines ONE Championship’s 10-year-anniversary fight card, ONE X.
The 24-year-old former atomweight ONE kickboxing World Champion and former Muay Thai atomweight ONE Muay Thai world champion is now gunning to be the only person ever to win three belts in three different sports, three world titles.
She meets ONE strawweight MMA champion Angela Lee in the main event in Singapore on March 26.
Prior to the biggest fight of her life. Fairtex made a prediction about the special rules bout between two all-time greats Rodtang Jitmuangnon and Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson who will compete in a hybrid rules bout consisting of alternating rounds of MMA and Muay Thai.
“My prediction, I would say, since the first round, Rodtang will have the advantage whereas DJ will have a tremendous advantage in the second round,” Fairtex said. “So this is going to be a very interesting and hard-fought battle. But I give the slight edge to Rodtang. I believe [this] because Rodtang has been training really hard to defend himself in the mixed martial arts ruleset on the ground, [so I] think he could beat a DJ in this fight.”
