At the tender young age of 19, Singapore’s “Unstoppable” Angela Lee became the youngest world champion in mixed martial arts history. She captured the inaugural ONE Atomweight World Championship in 2016.
Lee accomplished the feat by defeating Japanese MMA veteran Mei Yamaguchi, powering through a back and forth battle to win the title. Since then, Lee has shot to superstardom, and has become one of the most exciting female fighters in the world.

Coming from a family of decorated martial artists, Lee has dazzled audiences with her well-rounded grappling skill set. Her incredible array of submissions is impressive as she has proven to be a tremendous BJJ practitioner.
Her agility and flexibility allow her to execute effortless transitions. Spinning a web of grappling mastery, Lee forces her opponents to commit mistakes which she then capitalizes on. She has even successfully executed a Twister, which is an extremely rare submission in professional MMA.
With five of her seven total career wins coming by submission, it’s safe to say that Lee is one of the most dangerous grapplers in women’s MMA.
