ONE’s Angela Lee In ‘Crazy Situation’ Defending Title On Two-Fight Losing Streak

Angela Lee will look to defend her atomweight title at One “Championship” Century against strawweight titlist Jingnan Xiong on Oct. 13. Xiong defeated Lee by fifth-round TKO in their first meeting at One “A New Era” on March 31. Following the loss, Lee stayed at strawweight, losing a unanimous decision to Michelle Nicolini at One “Masters of Destiny” in July to fall to 9-2 as a pro. Despite her two-bout skid, Lee remains the promotion’s atomweight champion. She recognizes that she is in somewhat of a unique place in that regard. “It is a crazy situation. I have two losses in my last two fights, so the pressure of losing is off my shoulders,” Lee said to Sherdog.com. “But, I have to defend my belt now, which is a lot of pressure. I didn’t get to show my skills in my last two fights.” Although Lee lost the first fight to Xiong, she is confident she has what it takes to win the rematch. She knows she performs and feels much better at atomweight and expects to remain undefeated in the division.
