Despite Being The Target Of Top Contenders, Angela Lee Enjoying Life Away From The Circle

After announcing that she was pregnant in early 2020, ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion “Unstoppable” Angela Lee has been spending some time away from ONE Championship, but her life has not been stagnant.

The reigning divisional queen has been keeping herself – and her soon-to-be newborn – quite active.

In an Instagram post, Lee posed for pictures with her developing baby, showing martial arts fans that she just can’t get enough of the gym, even if she can’t currently hit the mats. 

Lee last appeared in the ONE Circle during October 2019 when she defended the ONE Atomweight World Title against longtime rival “The Panda” Xiong Jing Nan, who is also the reigning ONE Women’s Strawweight World Champion. 

“Unstoppable” then made news after posting on social media a video of her gym, United BJJ MMA, in Hawaii being vandalized. Authorities are still looking for the suspect. 

It’s hard to say if Lee will return to action this year, but whether she steps back into the Circle in 2021 or at the beginning of 2022, she’ll have a deep pool of hungry contenders waiting for her. 

The ONE women’s atomweight division has been growing rapidly, with top talents like #1-ranked contender Denice “The Menace” Zamboanginian, #2-ranked Meng Bo, and #5-ranked Stamp Fairtex all waiting for their shot at the queen. 

Then there’s the rising star of the division, Ritu “The Indian Tigress” Phogat, who’s been on a tear since joining the promotion. 

Lee will be in for a challenge no matter which fighter she faces upon her return to action, so she might as well enjoy these moments while she can.
