Victoria “The Prodigy” Lee, 16, of Hawaii, United States was one of the winners at “ONE: Fists of Fury.” It was the Hawaiian mixed martial artist’s first victory in the Singapore-based martial arts organization ONE Championship.

Featuring one MMA match, one Muay Thai fight and four kickboxing contests, “ONE: Fists of Fury” took place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore on February 26, 2021. In the first bout of the evening, Lee fought Sunisa Srisen of Thailand in an MMA match in the atomweight division.

Mohamad Sulaiman served as the referee. He put a stop to the atomweight contest in the second round when Lee submitted Srisen via rear-naked choke.

Lee is the reigning Hawaii High School Athletics Association 117-pound state wresting champion. She made her ONE Championship debut at “ONE: Fists of Fury” where she represented both the U.S. and her father’s home country Singapore.

Including the U.S. Singapore and Thailand, 10 countries were represented at “ONE: Fists of Fury.” The others were China, Georgia, Italy, Japan, Morocco, the Netherlands and Russia.

Winning at “ONE: Fists of Fury” improved Lee’s professional MMA record to 1 win and 0 loss. On the other hand, Srisen now has 4 wins and 2 losses.

When Srisen made her ONE Championship debut in 2020, she lost to her fellow Thai MMA fighter Stamp Fairtex. In the same year, Srisen earned her first win in the promotion by beating Japanese-Thai MMA star Rika Ishige.

Before joining ONE Championship, Lee was already 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.

Two of Lee’s three siblings are ONE Championship athletes. She is the younger sister of the promotion’s champions Angela “Unstoppable” Lee, 23, and Christian “The Warrior” Lee, 22.
