Graduating high school is a big accomplishment in itself, but ONE Championship’s Victoria Lee has done it as a professional fighter.

ONE Championship is home to some of the best fighters on the planet, from Demetrious Johnson to the champion siblings Angela and Christian Lee. Those who follow ONE Championship surely know that the Lee siblings are very talented fighters, but there is another sister who is doing amazing things both inside the cage and out, that is younger sister Victoria Lee.

Lee has just turned 18 years old and has recently graduated from high school. In addition to this achievement, Lee is also a professional fighter. So far, she has had three professional fights under the ONE Championship banner and has won them all.

Her nickname of “The Prodigy” seems to hold water and she began fighting professionally at just 17 years old and has shown that she may be the next in the family to hold the gold in ONE Championship. Many professional fighters devote their entire lives to the sport. Many quit other jobs when they go pro, but Lee has to juggle both school and training. She has spoken previously about this to Sportskeeda.

“Most of my teachers do know me, are really understanding and they extend deadlines for me,” Lee said. “But some are kind of like, more stiff on their requirements. And then I’ll just, like, miss the test, or I’ll make it up. But for the most part, my grades are good, and my teachers are understanding about it.”

Now that high school is behind her, Lee may be ready to return to the cage, although she does not have a date set as of now. She has not publically mentioned her plans for the future at this time.

What do you think of Victoria Lee fighting professionally while attending high school?

Fans have a chance to win a trip to Hawaii and train and train MMA with ONE Championship famous family trio the Lees.

ONE Championship is offering a chance to train with Women’s atomweight champion Angela Lee, former lightweight champion Christian Lee, and the younger sister of the two, Victoria Lee.

Angela Lee is a superstar in the promotion. 8 of her 11 professional wins are by vicious submission. She is undefeated at atomweight and has obtained two division titles within the promotion.

In 2016, “Unstoppable” became the youngest champion after defeating Mei Yamaguchi for the vacant atomweight belt two years later, they meet in the cage again for the flyweight championship and Lee stripped her of the title.

She suffered two losses at flyweight following her championship win. But still dominates at atomweight, with 4 title defenses, defeating her last two opponents by rear-naked choke.

Younger brother Christian Lee has made incredible strides in ONE.

In 2019, he took out Shinya Aoki, one of Japan’s most prominent fighters to obtain the lightweight throne. That victory marked a historical moment, as Angela and Christian became the first brother-sister duo champions.

“The Warrior” last fought in 2021, where he lost his belt to Rae Yoon Ok.

At just 17 years old, “The Prodigy” Victoria Lee is a phenom in ONE.

Angela Lee Not Opposed To Christian Lee vs. Eddie Alvarez Title Fight

Eddie Alvarez is not deserving of a title shot. However, Angela Lee is willing to look past that as far as her brother Christian is concerned.

Christian is the current ONE lightweight champion with Alvarez recently calling him out.

Christian, however, was dismissive of the callouts given Alvarez has only won once in four ONE outings with his last fight being a decision defeat to Rae Yoon Ok.

However, Christian’s sister Angela acknowledges that it’s the biggest fight that can be made — which is why she isn’t opposed to Alvarez getting a title shot next.

“If you look at Eddie’s record on paper since he joined ONE, it’s not too impressive,” Angela said (via MMA Junkie). “Just looking at what fights he’s had in ONE, you’d think he’s undeserving of a title shot, but given that Eddie comes from a history of being previous UFC champion, being previous Bellator champion, and he has a huge following, and a lot of fans want that fight then I think that would be the only reason for Christian to take the fight against Eddie, is that’s the fight the fans want.

“That’s the fight that’s gonna be the biggest draw. So I don’t think that Christian owes Eddie this title fight, I don’t think Eddie’s deserving of the title fight, but just because it’s in such high demand by the fans that I think, yeah sure, why not? Make it happen.”

Even with Alvarez winless in his last two, it’s hard to deny that him against Lee would be one of the biggest fights the Singapore-based promotion can put out.

Do you think Alvarez should get the next shot?

Making her pro debut with sky high expectations thanks to her siblings, Victoria Lee made sure not to disappoint.

Lee, the younger sister of ONE Championship title holders Angela and Christian, made her pro debut opposite Sunisa Srisen in the only MMA bout at ONE: Fists of Fury. Srisen came in with a 4-1 professional record, her only loss belonging to Stamp Fairtex.

The 16-year-old Lee and Srisen traded shots early on before finding themselves on the mat. From there, ‘The Prodigy’ started to take over, fishing for a rear-naked choke and finishing the round with a barrage of strikes from top position. In the second round, Lee wasted no time taking her opponent down. She immediately took Srisen’s back and worked in another rear-naked choke, forcing a tap (H/T MMAFighting).

“Things didn’t go according to plan,” she said in her post-fight interview. “I tried to finish it in the first round. However, we just went back to the corner, my dad said ‘hit the reset button’ and I did what I was supposed to do in the first round, in the second.

“Once I got her to the ground, I was just focusing on my base, got the hooks in, and I saw her head pop up so I went for the neck and I just squeezed.”

The Lee family dynasty will look to keep their momentum running in April, when Christian defends his lightweight title against Timofey Nastyukhin. The champion has made some proclamations ahead of the fight and will look to back up his words.

Fans will have to wait a while before seeing Angela step in the ring again, as she is expecting her first child. ONE Championship is holding an 8-women atomweight grand-prix, with the winner tentatively scheduled to face Lee upon her return in November.
