Stamp began by pressing Tomar into the corner, but she was put on her back when the Indian athlete caught and countered a leg kick with a slick trip. However, the Thai superstar was back on her feet and attacking with knees in the clinch.
When “The Cyclone” attempted the same takedown again, Stamp was wise to it and took her rival’s back as they hit the canvas. From there, the 22-year-old from Pattaya immediately established her hooks and tried to sink in a rear-naked choke.
Though Tomar escaped that submission attempt and grasped for a leg lock, she was not out of danger for long.
Stamp quickly took the back again and after almost a minute of non-stop ground and pound, referee Olivier Coste had no choice but to step in to stop the contest at 4:27 of the first round.
The Thai striking queen is now 4-0 as a mixed martial artist, and though she has her ONE Atomweight Kickboxing and Muay Thai World Titles to defend, she reiterated her plans to challenge “Unstoppable” Angela Lee for the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Championship, too.
“I want to keep fighting mixed martial arts, improve my skills, and soon I’ll come for that belt,” she said.
