ONE Championship will be returning to the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand on March 11 and headlining the fight card will be ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee who is set to defend her title against rising star Jenny Huang.
Just to clarify, the promotion calls their 115lb division ‘atomweight’, whilst most promotions including the UFC call it ‘strawweight’. So this will be a 115lb championship fight.
Lee, 20-years-old, has roots in Singapore and combines her training at both United MMA in Hawaii and Evolve-MMA in Asia. Despite her tender age, Lee has proven that she has both solid striking and grappling skills and currently has a perfect 6-0 professional record.
In her last bout, Lee captured the inaugural ONE Women’s Atomweight World Championship with victory over Mei Yamaguchi which many talked about as one of the best fights of 2016. Lee will now make the first defense of her title against Jenny Huang when she fights for the first time in Thailand in March.
25-year-old Huang hails from Taiwan and also has an unbeaten record as a professional with five wins and no losses.
Three of Huang’s wins have come via submission and in her most recent bout she executed a verry impressive and very rare gogoplata submission against Filipino fighter April Osenio. Huang will no doubt be a dangerous opponent for ONE Championship’s golden girl Lee, but will she be able to overcome the pressure of being involved in her biggest fight to date?
Both these unbeaten fighters will put their perfect professional records on the line on March 11 in this much-anticipated title fight. it’s going to be one not miss.
