This Month’s MMA Birthdays: Angela Lee Turns 25



Building blocks are prized commodities in mixed martial arts, and
One
Championship appears to have one in Angela Lee.
She turns 25 on July 8.

Lee has spent her entire 12-fight career with the Singapore-based
organization. She made her debut as a teenager in 2015, rattled off
five consecutive submission victories and captured the inaugural
One Championship women’s atomweight title a little more than a year
later. Lee moved to 9-0 before she suffered her first pro
setback—she failed in her bid to become a simultaneous two-division
champion in a defeat to strawweight titleholder Jingnan
Xiong—and now sits at a more than respectable 10-2. She last
appeared at One Championship Century Part 1, where she avenged her
loss to Xiong and retained the atomweight crown with a fifth-round
submission via rear-naked choke.
