Victoria Lee, 16, is the most recent athlete to join ONE Championship. The teenage martial artist is the younger sister of the Singapore-based martial arts promotion’s champions Angela “Unstoppable” Lee, 23, and Christian “The Warrior” Lee, 22.

This made Angela, Christian and Victoria the first ever group of three siblings signed in ONE Championship at the same time. Their father Ken Lee is Chinese-Singaporean while their mother Jewelz Lee is Korean.

“I feel extremely excited and motivated to be part of the world’s largest martial arts organization, ONE Championship,” Victoria said. “Inspired by watching my older brother and sister compete on the biggest global stage of martial arts competition, I am ready to take my career to the next level and compete with the world’s best martial arts athletes.”

 

Angela is the reigning ONE Women’s Strawweight World Champion. Christian is the reigning ONE Lightweight World Champion.

“I want to thank my parents for teaching me and guiding me and for allowing me to chase my dreams,” Victoria continued. “I promise all the fans that I will continue to train hard and develop my skills and that I’ll be ready when I get the call to step inside the ONE Circle.”

ONE Championship has yet to announce the details about Victoria’s promotional debut. She will compete in the promotion’s women’s atomweight division in MMA.

 

Aside from Christian, Angela and Victoria have another brother named Adrian Lee, 14. Victoria attends Mililani High School in Mililani, Hawaii, United States.

Victoria is a 15-time North American Grappling Association (NAGA) Expert Champion and a two-time Pankration Junior World Champion. In 2019, she won the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) Junior World Championship and the Hawaii State Wrestling Championship

On August 4, 2019, Victoria defeated two Italian opponents at the 2019 IMMAF-World Mixed Martial Arts Association (WMMAA) Youth MMA World Championships at the Pala Pellicone in Lido di Ostia, Rome, Italy. She submitted Ilaria Leto via rear-naked choke in the first round after defeating Alessandra Dardelli via unanimous decision.

Recently, Victoria was promoted to purple belt in jiu-jitsu. She was also a 2020 Oahu Interscholastic Association (OIA) Wrestling Champion for Mililani High School.
