ONE Championship will make its return to Bangkok on 11 March with a huge women’s atomweight title fight between defending champ Angela Lee and unbeaten Taiwanese fighter Jenny Huang.
The bout will be the main event of ONE: Warrior Kingdom.
The 20-year-old “Unstoppable” Angela Lee won the atomweight title when she took on Japanese mixed martial arts veteran Mei Yamaguchi at ONE: Ascent to Power. The bout was recently named ONE’s Fight of the Year for 2016.
Lee has since amassed an unblemished 6-0 start to her professional mixed martial arts career, which kicked off in just May of 2015.
Lee said she has been watching her opponent closely and says it will be an exciting match of styles.
“I had back to back fights leading up to the title fight and after I won the belt I took some time off. The goal for 2017 is to be an active champion and to stay busy. I’m really looking forward to headlining the card in Bangkok.”
“I’ve been watching Jenny and have seen her last few fights. I think that this is going to be a great fight and it will be exciting for the fans to see how our styles match up.”
The 25-year-old Jenny Huang is female mixed martial artist who hails from Taiwan.
Unbeaten with a professional MMA record of five wins and no losses, Huang also owns three highly-impressive submission victories.
In her most recent bout, Huang electrified the arena by executing an extremely rare submission via gogoplata, overcoming a spirited performance from Filipino fighter April Osenio.
