Brazil’s ‘Wonder Boy’ Fabricio Andrade is looking forward to seeing his Phuket neighbor ‘C18’ Anissa Meksen mixing the martial arts against Stamp Fairtex. Andrade recently revealed that he and Meksen live in the same apartment building in Thailand and often bump into each other.
Meksen and Stamp will meet in a mixed-rules superfight at ONE Fight Night 6 on Prime Video on January 13. Each round of the match will alternate between Muay Thai and MMA rules.
Both Stamp and ‘C18’ have held impressive world championships in the sports of kickboxing and Muay Thai. However, it is the Thai-born Stamp who has an experience edge in MMA, having competed for years in the sport.
Top-ranked bantamweight fighter Fabricio Andrade recently explained that we must wait and see what Meksen’s skills will be in MMA. In an interview with ONE, he said:
“That’s what I’m saying, we don’t know what to expect from Anissa because she actually said she did MMA a couple of years ago. She was actually doing jiu-jitsu and she was doing wrestling, you know. It’s not that Anissa doesn’t know anything.”
With some past experience, ‘C18’ may surprise fans in this upcoming fight. Andrade continued:
“She knows something on the ground. We just don’t know how much she does and how it’s gonna be compared to Stamp.”
