Angela Lee announces sister Victoria Lee, ONE Championship veteran, dead at 18


ONE Championship atomweight titleholder Angela Lee on Saturday announced the death of her younger sister, ONE strawweight vet Victoria Lee.

In an Instagram post, Angela Lee said her sister died on Dec. 26, 2022 and wrote “our family has been completely devastated since then.” The cause of Victoria Lee’s death was not disclosed; a PR rep for ONE Championship said the promotion was working on a statement.

Victoria Lee, a bright prospect in MMA, followed her older sibling into the professional world after competing in pankration and wrestling in Hawaii. She made her ONE debut in February 2021, submitting Sunisa Srisan in the second round. In all, she amassed a 3-0 record under the ONE banner, stopping all of her opponents. She most recently fought in September 2021, stopping by TKO Victoria Souza.

“She has gone too soon and our family has been completely devastated since then,” Angela Lee wrote. We miss her. It is the most important thing in our lives. It will be a different life for our family. Life will never be the same.

“Victoria was the most beautiful soul who ever lived. She was the best little sister in the world. She was the most beautiful daughter and best grandaughter, and she was also the best aunty / godma to Alia and Ava.

“We miss you so much sis. You have more than you can ever imagine. We’re all broken. We are all broken because we each had a little bit of you in us, and those bits were taken out when you left.

” We will never again be the same .”

The Lees are managed by their father, Ken Lee, who was not immediately reachable for comment. Angela Lee had predicted her younger sister would surpass her accomplishments in the cage, telling Brendan Schaub a title was in her sister’s future.

Victoria Lee stated that her brother and sister were her greatest role models in a past interview she did with MMA Fighting.

Christian Lee, Victoria Lee’s older brother, has just won the welterweight title to make him a two-division champion. He previously held the lightweight title.
