The young MMA fighter Victoria Lee died on December 26 in Hawaii. The Valley of the Temples Memorial Park and Funeral Homes in Kaneohe announced her death on Friday. Her sister Angela Lee, ONE’s Atomweight MMA champion, confirmed it on Saturday. But, her cause of death is still unknown to the public.
Victoria Lee was an up-and-coming mixed martial artist who has quickly made a name for herself in the sport. Born in 1995 in Auckland, New Zealand, Lee began her martial arts journey at a young age, training in taekwondo and kickboxing before eventually transitioning to mixed martial arts.
Lee made her professional debut in 2018, and has since compiled a record of 7 wins and 1 loss. She has primarily competed in the strawweight division, and has already faced some tough competition in her young career.
One of the things that sets Lee apart from other fighters was her versatility. She was skilled in a variety of martial arts disciplines, including boxing, Muay Thai, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and was comfortable fighting both on the feet and on the ground. This made her a tough opponent for anyone in the strawweight division.
Lee was also known for her excellent cardio and relentless pace, which allowed her to maintain a high level of intensity throughout her fights. This had earned her a reputation as a fan-favorite, as she was always willing to put on a show for the crowd.
The fourth pro fight for Victoria Lee was planned to take place on January 14 at ONE on Prime Video 6 in Bangkok against Zeba Bano of India.
Also the younger sister of MMA champion Christian Lee, “The Prodigy” made her professional MMA with the promotion in February 2021, defeating Thailand’s Sunisa Srisen by submission with a rear-naked choke in just over a minute. It took her just four minutes to submit China’s Wang Luping in her second fight in July of the same year.
Despite her relatively short time in the sport, Lee already achieved a great deal of success. In addition to her impressive record, she also won several awards and accolades, including the “Performance of the Night” award at a recent event.
