Angela Lee Teases Return in Early 2022
It’s been a while since fans last saw Angela Lee competing in One Championship.
Lee (10-2, 10-2 One) took some time on maternity leave as she became the mother of her beautiful daughter, Eva Marie. Still, the current One atomweight titleholder kept a close eye on her division as the atomweight grand prix played out. After the dust settled and the tournament ended, Stamp Fairtex emerged as the winner and earned a chance to face “Unstoppable” in a championship clash in 2022. While talking with Sherdog, Lee commented on the performance of her next opponent.
“I was thinking that she would go far in the tournament when I saw her name in the grand prix lineup. Given her credentials and her muay Thai and kickboxing championships, and then she made her transition to MMA, I had a feeling we would match up one day. Now, it’s finally going to happen in 2022.”
When asked about a date for her return, Lee stated that the promotion hasn’t set it yet. However, if it were up to her, the Evolve MMA representative would pick the first quarter of 2022.
“For me, I’m looking forward to fighting within the first three months of next year. That’s when I’d ideally like to fight. However, I didn’t have a date. We just have to wait and see.”
Lee also commented on the Christian Lee-Rae Yoon Ok clash, answered Istela Nunes’ accusations on their championship fight at “One: Dynasty of Heroes,” revealed her plans for Christmas and more.
