ONE atomweight world champion Angela Lee has her sights set on a superfight with UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk. It should be noted that unlike most organizations, ONE refers to their 115-pound weight class as the “atomweight division”, so both women are undefeated world champions in the same weight class.
Last month, Lee (8-0) defended her title against Isela Nunes. After her third straight title win, Lee is thinking about a potential superfight with the UFC world champion.
“I would be all for it,” Lee said. “I’m very excited about that idea. If it was up to the fighters, anyone would be up for fighting anyone. It’s just because of the organizations and what goes on that side of things. I don’t know if that would be a realistic thing in the near future, but for me, as a fighter, I’d be all for it fighting a UFC champion, I think it would be a great opportunity and I think the fans would love it.
“I’m confident in my skills. Joanna looks really great when she is fighting all these other girls that are kind of a mismatch. But I feel my skill set brings a whole different look to it. I think it would be a good fight.
“I know ONE are constantly growing the women’s division, my weight class as well as the one above me. They are constantly recruiting fighters from different organizations. Who knows, my next fight could be someone from ONE Championship or could be with someone from another organization, I’m not sure.”
