Angela Lee is Determined to Become ONE Double Champion

ONE Women’s Atomweight Champion Angela Lee wants to become a two-division world champion.

Lee is currently undefeated with eight wins. She is a submission specialist. Seven of her opponents have been forced to submit to the ONE champion.

Last month, Lee defended her title against Isela Nunes. After her third straight title win, Lee is beginning to want to venture out into other divisions.

“It is one of my goals,” Lee told IBTimes UK. “I don’t want to rush things, I want to take it one step at a time and earn my way up into the next division. First of all I want to clear out the atomweight division, make sure there is no competition left before I go and take the next belt. It’s my goal, be a multiple champion in two different weight classes.”

ONE Championship currently only has one women’s division, and Lee stands on top of it. However, Lee is open to fighting UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk for her title.

“I would be all for it,” Lee said. “I’m very excited about that idea. If it was up to the fighters, anyone would be up for fighting anyone. It’s just because of the organizations and what goes on that side of things. I don’t know if that would be a realistic thing in the near future, but for me, as a fighter, I’d be all for it fighting a UFC champion, I think it would be a great opportunity and I think the fans would love it.

“I’m confident in my skills. Joanna looks really great when she is fighting all these other girls that are kind of a mismatch. But I feel my skill set brings a whole different look to it. I think it would be a good fight.

“I know ONE are constantly growing the women’s division, my weight class as well as the one above me. They are constantly recruiting fighters from different organizations. Who knows, my next fight could be someone from ONE Championship or could be with someone from another organization, I’m not sure.”
