Angela Lee stays motivated with her daughter by her side

A nuclearweight queen, Angela Lee, recently shared how her daughter Ava Marie has changed her perspective as a female fighter.

The Singaporean-American star became the first Mother Champion in the organization’s history at ONE X last March. Putting her world title on the line against Thai fighter Stamp Fairtex, Lee delivered a comeback performance of a lifetime by securing a rear-naked choke in the second round.

Now that Lee has achieved undisputed world championship status and seems to be living the good life, what keeps the “unstoppable” motivated to achieve more in the sport?

In an exclusive interview with ONE, the 26-year-old superstar named her 1-year-old daughter Ava Marie as her new source of inspiration:

“You know, I’m pursuing my passion right now. My passion is mixed martial arts. And, you know, I’ll keep doing it while I still have passion for it. It gives a whole new meaning to what I do.

“And now everything is so much clearer. I don’t know, she just kindles that fire I had when I first started fighting. And I just want to show her that her mom is motivated, her mom is ambitious, and her mom is a you know, I want to set an example for her.”

Angela Lee’s next fight has yet to be completed, but fans can expect to see the mother champion fight again before the end of the year.


Angela Lee was looking forward to introducing the atomic weight class to the American audience

In July, Angela Lee attended the ONE and Amazon Prime Video press conference in Los Angeles. She told the media that evening that she was excited for the opportunity to shine a spotlight on the atomic division for American fans.

Taking questions from the press, Lee explained the difference between the weight classes: atomic weight and straw weight, noting that this could be confusing for first-time viewers.

The upper weight limit for the atomic weight class at ONE Championship is 115 lbs, which is interchangeable with the American weight class known as Strawweight.

The weight limit for straw weight is 125 lbs, also known as bantam weight in the US. However, Angela Lee assured fans that they will be able to adapt in no time and enjoy all the nuances ONE Championship has to offer:

“It’s going to be great, you know, to have US support. I think they will just fall in love with the ONE Championship Show and the athletes are amazing, you will see us on a different level.”
