Victoria Lee vs. Sunisa Srisen
Victoria Lee, while inexperienced in pro competition, has been training for most of her life, and has an impressive list of competitive accolades. Not long after signing the younger Lee sibling, ONE CEO Chatri Sityodtong gushed over her already numerous achievements and her potential.
“ONE Championship has signed 16 year old martial arts prodigy Victoria Lee,” Sityodtong wrote. “She is a 2019 IMMAF Junior World Champion, a 2x Pankration Junior World Champion, and a 2019 Hawaii State Wrestling Champion. Oh wait, I almost forgot to mention that Victoria also happens to be the younger sister of ONE Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee and ONE Lightweight World Champion Christian Lee! It might be impossible to believe, but Victoria is already better than Angela was at the same age. She will be competing in the stacked atomweight division. For me, Victoria is arguably the single greatest pound-for-pound female prospect in the world today.”
In Srisen, Lee will get a tough welcome to ONE Championship. The Thai is 4-1 as a pro mixed martial artist, and is riding a win over the fan favorite Rika Ishige. Her lone loss occurred at the hands of striking dynamo Stamp Fairtex.
