Lee looks to make history as ONE's first female dual champion

Undefeated ONE atomweight champion Angela Lee (9-0-0) will aim to make history by becoming the company’s first female dual champion when she faces strawweight queen “The Panda” Jing Nan Xiong (13-1-0) at ONE: Heart of the Lion next month.

Lee is already the youngest world champion in MMA history. She accomplished that at 19 years old when she defeated Mei Yamaguchi to capture the atomweight strap. Two years and three title defences later, she is looking to shock the world in November against Xiong.

Xiong has other ideas.

The 30 year old from China recently collected another impressive finish of Samara Santos Cunha in September and looks ready to add a third successful defence in November.

ONE: Heart of the Lion is set for November 9 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore. In the co-main event, bantamweight champion Bibiano Fernandes unifies the belt with interim holder Kevin Belingon.
