ONE Championship: 5 potential opponents for Victoria Lee’s next fight

0

Victoria Lee is a mixed martial arts prodigy, largely because of her influences. Lee comes from a family of decorated martial artists. To say the Lee family has taken the mixed martial arts world by storm is an understatement.

It all started with Angela Lee and her rapid rise to the top of the ONE Championship atomic weight division. The woman known as “Unstoppable” found herself in a championship fight with just six fights in her young career, facing Mei Yamaguchi, who had a 19-fight experience advantage at the time.

The fight would go on to deliver five hellish action rounds with Lee, still two months away from his 20th birthday, winning the unanimous decision.

Next is Christian Lee, Angela’s younger brother and one of the best lightweight on the planet. After winning nine of his first 10 fights, Lee unsuccessfully challenged ONE’s featherweight strap, falling to Martin Nguyen for the second time.

Just four fights later, Lee would fight for the ONE lightweight world title, this time successfully beating Shinya Aoki by technical knockout. Lee has since lost the title but remains the top contender in the lightweight division.


‘The Prodigy’ Victoria Lee

Attention has now shifted to Victoria Lee, a 17-year-old phenomenon with three wins in three outings, all by way of finish. Although she is young, a breakthrough in the competition seems to be on the horizon.

With that in mind, here are five athletes we want to see Victoria Lee fight next.


# 5. Alyse ‘Lil’ Savage ‘Anderson vs. Victoria Lee

With ONE on the TNT series and rumors of the ONE Championship coming to the United States, pitting Lee against an American opponent makes a lot of sense.

Alyse Anderson would provide a competitive edge for Lee, as the Michigan native has a professional record of 5-2 with a pair of knockouts and a submission.

Anderson competed in the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Grand Prix outfitted with a head-to-toe patriotic battle kit, even featuring red, white and blue braids. The 26-year-old lost a decisive fight to Japan’s Itsuki Hirata, eliminating her from the competition.

Of course, with the tournament grand prize being a title shot against Angela Lee, a fight with Victoria Lee seems like a fair consolation prize for Anderson, as well as the aforementioned increase in competition for Lee.
