Mixed martial arts (MMA) golden girl Angela Lee has stamped her authority on ONE Championship’s Atomweight division, having won three title fights in 12 months.


Now, she is considering a move up in weight class to take on bigger opponents.

Speaking to The New Paper at a media lunch organised by Grey Group yesterday, the 21-year-old Canadian-American did not rule out switching to the strawweight division, where the weight limit is 56.7kg as opposed to 52.2kg in her current division.

Said Lee, who fights under the Singapore flag: “Moving up to the strawweight division is something I do have in mind, but I am not sure when I will make that transition over.

“Atomweight has always been a difficult cut for me, a difficult weight to maintain. I think that the next division would be my ideal weight.

“The strawweight division has more girls now and ONE Championship has really been working hard to build that division. So, I would love to make my way over.

“I think I have done a good job here in the atomweight division but I still have this match with Mei. But after that from 2018 onwards, who knows?”
