MMA world mourns loss of The Prodigy


One of the world’s most promising young MMA fighters has died at the age of 18, her family has confirmed.

Victoria Lee, born and raised in Hawaii, was the sister of MMA champions Angela and Christian.

Lee, dubbed ‘The Prodigy,’ had been tipped for similar success and won her first three fights in the Singapore-based ‘ONE Championship’ before taking time off to concentrate on her education this year.

”She has gone too soon and our family has been completely devastated since then,” sister Angela wrote in an Instagram post.

“We miss her more than anything in this world. Our family will never be the same.

“Life will never be the same. Victoria was the most beautiful soul who ever lived. She was the best little sister in the world.”

ONE’s chairman, Chatri Sityodtong, also paid tribute to Lee.

“I first met Victoria when she was 11 years old,” he wrote in a Facebook post.

“I watched her blossom over the years as a martial artist and a human being. I always remember thinking how wise, thoughtful, and selfless she was beyond her years.

“Of course, she was an extraordinary martial arts prodigy even back then, but I could see that she was so much more than that. Victoria had the purest heart of gold and a brilliant mind. She looked after others before herself.

“She wanted to use her life to help the world. I will always remember Victoria for the beautiful and precious soul that she was.”
