ONE women’s atomweight MMA athlete Victoria Lee tragically passed away on December 26, 2022. The ONE Championship team is devastated over this news and sends our most heartfelt condolences to her family and friends at this difficult time.
Victoria – the young sister of ONE World Champions Angela and Christian Lee – earned three victories in her ONE career, last defeating Victoria Souza via second-round TKO in September 2021.
Angela revealed the tragic news of Victoria’s passing on social media and paid tribute to her sister.
ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong also paid tribute to Victoria on social media.
“I am heartbroken by Victoria Lee’s passing. I first met Victoria when she was 11 years old. 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.
“May you rest in peace, Victoria. We will all miss you.
“I send my love, prayers, strength, and light to Ken, Jewelz, Angela, Christian, Adrian, and all of their loved ones. I am so truly heartbroken for your loss. May God bless you.”
