    I'm sure this has been posted, I don't follow One too closely, the timing sucks for me in the states. Victoria Lee, Angela Lee who is the former One atom weight champ won her pro debut at 16 in February. It's odd seeing a child fight a grown adult. A lot of hype behind her. Christian Lee, Angela Lee's brother is the LW champ I believe and beat Nastyuken the dude who KO'd Eddie. The Lee's be taking over one.

    Her brother and sister are the best prospects in the world at their respective weight classes imo, if she's anywhere near as good she'll be a problem.

    That was impressive. Absolutely no need to rush her progression.

    Her sister just had a baby so that'll set her back some.

    True, but there are plenty of fighters who've had a baby and come back even better, maybe it'll have the big mac truck dern effect.

    This is the first thread in the history of Sherdog that wasn't automatically deleted and the TS banned for making a thread about a 16 year old girl.

    It's kind of weird seeing a teenager fight.

    But Rory Macdonald did the same thing, so maybe it's good?

    Hope they build her up properly.

    That is a huge claim you're making. You're saying Christian Lee is better than Tsarukyan and Fiziev?

    I think he's done more than them so far, yeah, he's also younger than both of them.

    Here’s an interview with Victoria and Angela talking about her signing with One (this is before her debut fight):

    *cliffs:
    -all the Lee’s are excited
    -tries to ignore negativity on social media
    -Angela says Victoria is a younger, faster version of herself
    -Victoria was raised in all disciplines of mma, not just one facet
    -if Victoria works her way to atom weight #1 contender, Angela will move to strawweight
    -Victoria has her family’s support to fall back on when confronted with pressures of expectations
    -Victoria is learning skills as a prospect that Angela is learning as a champion
    -youngest brother trains but uncertain if will choose the path to go pro
    -Lee family is tight knit

    She is probably good but she is a product of ONE FC. They will give her favorable squash matchups to milk the Singaporeans. The brother might be a real legit talent. He has a lot of experience despite being young.

    True , plus she is only 24ish so plenty of time on her fight life.

    Wonderboy has been fighting since he was 15 and I think canelo as well. Somewhat common in other sports. Never seen it in MMA though

    She does some training in Hawaii , and Hawaii is fight crazy with the likes of Smolka and Holloway, so I can see her doing training with those fight addicts.
