Anissa Meksen made is three wins out of three for ONE Championship this morning. The French fighter dominated Daokongfah Banchamek from start to finish at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Meksen has made it very clear she wants a shot at one of the belts at atomweight. The French fighter is primarily a kickboxer but was competing under Muay Thai rules here.

That could have been a factor which favoured her Thai opponent but Daokongfah caused Meksen virtually no problems in a totally one sided contest.

Speed and accuracy

Meksen was able to land straight punches to the face of her opponent at will. Daokongfah’s strategy was to walk forwards and tie her opponent up in the clinch but on the rare occasions she succeeded a stalemate ensued.

Meksen’s speed and accuracy caused Daokongfah problems throughout the fight. She was able to land some solid low kicks but it was the jabs, straight right hands and left hooks that left the Thai fighter’s face a bloody mess.

Daokongfah is as tough as they come and never looked like being stopped. But she was far too static a target and fighting in MMA gloves meant she could not use a high guard to protect herself from Meksen’s punches.

Daokongfah holds a decision win over ONE Championship’s reigning atomweight Muay Thai champion Allycia Rodrigues. So after this lopsided decision win Meksen is clearly entitled to believe she is good enough to win this belt.

Mixed rules

But next up for the French fighter is Stamp Fairtex who she faces in a mixed rules fight at ONE on Prime Video 6 in Bangkok. Meksen made it clear that she has been training MMA for several years and is not a complete beginner.

The ruleset appears to favour Stamp who has been competing regularly in MMA for the last three years. While Meksen might have been preparing to transition to the sport she has yet to make her debut.

But the French fighter is extremely confident and when asked about Stamp she stated that,

“She’s a dancer, I’m a fighter!”

That comment is unlikely to go down well in Thailand. It could make for a fiery atmosphere when the two atomweights finally go head to head and Meksen sounds like she is very comfortable with the unconventional ruleset.

But she still wants her title shot and after winning all three of her ONE Championship fights the 34 year old has probably earned it!
