She joined the commentary booth for the main event between Stamp Fairtex and Ham Seo-hee, who were set to fight for the interim belt. Following Lee’s announcement, it was upgraded to an undisputed title, won by Stamp with a third-round body-shot KO. .rsme-embed .rsme-d-none { display: none; } .rsme-embed .twitter-tweet { margin: 0 !important; } .rsme-embed blockquote { margin: 0 !important; padding: 0 !important; } .rsme-embed.rsme-facebook-embed .fb-post iframe { width: 100% !important; } .rsme-embed.rsme-facebook-embed .fb-post span { width: 100% !important; }
