By now Alyse Anderson must have heard the news. Stamp Fairtex has been promised a title shot against Seo Hee Ham in a fight which will have the interim atomweight belt on the line.

Anderson will have been interested in this development because she is set to face Stamp at ONE Fight Night 10 next month. The American will surely be wondering whether that means she is just one victory away from a shot at the interim title.

But if Anderson is stressed about the situation she definitely isn’t letting it show. The 28 year old shared a photo of herself relaxing by the pool in Coconut Creek:

Big stage

These days Anderson is based in Florida where she trains at American Top Team. She is not the only fighter there preparing for a big bout in Colorado on May 5th.

Adriano Moraes also fights out of American Top Team. The Brazilian faces Demetrious Johnson in a trilogy title fight that will headline ONE Fight Night 10, which is the promotion’s US debut.

Anderson has competed in MMA seven times and has never been stopped, her two losses have both come by way of decision. ONE Championship doesn’t currently have atomweight rankings so it is difficult to know whether she is in the top five.

Recent win

Anderson holds a purple belt in BJJ and clearly believes she has the edge over Stamp on the ground. The Thai will also be fighting in the US for the first time, having spent her entire career competing in Asia.

Anderson is coming off a win over Asha Roka. She had to come from behind to win that fight by submission after being rocked by the Indian in the opening round at ONE 157.

It is difficult to know what ONE Championship’s top five currently looks like as Itsuki Hirata is coming off a pair of wins, Ritu Phogat is involved in a contract dispute and Jihin Radzuan also lost her last fight. Anderson will know that a shot at the interim title could be on the line on May 5th but the 28 year old looks like she is taking it in her stride.
