The highly anticipated ONE women's atomweight MMA world title match between Stamp Fairtex and Denice Zamboanga was scrapped after the reigning world champion suffered a torn meniscus in her left knee. The development was officially announced by ONE Championship through its Instagram account, saying:

"Stamp has undergone surgery for a torn meniscus and is out of her Women's Atomweight MMA World Title defense against Denice Zamboanga at ONE 167 on Prime Video. We wish Stamp the best in her recovery and will provide an update on her status for the rest of the year in the near future 🙏 @stamp_fairtex"

Stamp suffered the injury in training last week and had surgery on Monday, May 20.

It was an unfortunate injury for the Thai superstar, who was supposed to defend her 115-pound world title for the first time since winning the belt in September 2023 against Ham Seo Ham at ONE Fight Night 14.

Despite withdrawing from the championship fight, the three-sport world champion received overwhelming support from fans, as users @bebtazer, @customprops1, @luke_moroz, and @nikita0rlov sent positive messages through their comments:

"Speedy recovery, champ @stamp_fairtex 🔥🔥"
"Get well soon. Hope you are ready to go for September Card in Denver"
"I'm so sorry to read this Stamp, hope you recover quickly and we see you fighting again soon. 💔"
"Stay strong legend, get well soon and don't give up ❤️"
