ONE Atomweight Champion Angela Lee Featured in CNN Op-Ed, Speaks About Fighting as a Woman in MMA

ONE Championship’s own “Unstoppable” was recently covered in a lengthy CNN feature story. Inside, the champion talks about her upbringing, explains the misconceptions of MMA, her plans for the future and what it’s like competing as a woman.

Inaugural ONE Atomweight Champion Angela “Unstoppable” Lee has well earned her fighting moniker over the past years. As the youngest champion in MMA history, the undefeated 20-year-old is showing no signs of slowing down in her path for atomweight division dominance. While media attention is nothing new for the champion, “Unstoppable” was recently the centerpiece for a lengthy CNN focus story.

As one of the many topics of discussion within the lengthy interview with CNN, Lee discussed that breaking the misconceived stereotypes of the sport is important to her.

“If you take me, for example. I’m just a kid, practically. A 20-year-old girl. I’m a professional MMA fighter and a world champion. I’m pretty much a living testimony to breaking these stereotypes that fighters are supposed to look a certain way, act a certain way.” Lee told CNN.

Lee ended the interview by letting everyone know that she isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

“It’s hard to put a date on it, because I really just got started.” Lee said. “I want to fight for as long as I can.”

Angela “Unstoppable” Lee is set to face fellow undefeated warrior Jenny Huang at ONE Championship: Warrior Kingdom on Saturday.
