Evolve Fight Team’s youngest warriors – Amir Khan, Benedict Ang, Christian Lee, and Angela Lee – are all included in the super exciting fight card, and we believe that it will be an epic, action-packed night.
One of the exciting fights of the night that you definitely don’t want to miss is that of Angela Lee (5-0) VS Mei Yamaguchi (15-8). This is because both MMA superstars will be battling it out in the cage for the inaugural ONE Women’s Atomweight World Championship title – and it doesn’t matter whether you’re on Team Lee or Team Yamaguchi, because we’re certain it will be an intense, exciting fight that will blow you away.
Today, Evolve Daily shares 5 Reasons Why You Can’t Miss Angela Lee’s Fight on 6 May:
1) Because this fight is the single most important one of Angela’s entire career
At only 19 years old, Angela (5-0) is already highly decorated and has made waves in the MMA world. She has proven herself to be a well-rounded MMA fighter and is currently undefeated. What’s more, she’s a 2x Pankration World Champion, a Hawaii State Wrestling Champion, and she also holds a Taekwondo Black Belt as well as a BJJ Brown Belt.
Her fight against Mei Yamaguchi on 6 May is her biggest one as she’s representing Singapore and headlining the event by fighting for the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Championship title. If she emerges victorious, she will be crowned the youngest-ever World Champion in history for any major global MMA organization. Angela literally has the rare opportunity to make history!
2) Because Mei Yamaguchi (15-8) is Angela’s toughest opponent yet
Hailing from Japan, 33 year old Yamaguchi is a veteran MMA World Champion, with 15 wins under her belt. In her most recent fight, Yamaguchi showed everyone that she has a solid striking game, as she defeated Satomi Takano with punches and went on to win the Deep Jewels Featherweight World Championship.
We believe that Yamaguchi’s years of experience will make her Angela’s toughest opponent as of now. Hence, giving Angela a great opportunity to put her skills to the test and show us how much she has grown as a martial artist.
3) Because it will keep you on the edge of your seat
Angela never fails to impress her fans as she has always been an exciting fighter to watch. After all, the cage is her playground. It comes as no surprise then, that she’s one of ONE Championship’s fastest rising stars. We believe that her fight against Mei Yamaguchi will be yet another exciting one that will blow you away – so don’t miss it!
4) Because it’s the biggest female fight in the history of Asia
Singapore vs Japan. During World War II, Singapore’s unbreakable spirit finally triumphed over the Japanese invaders. And now, will we witness history repeat itself in this epic match for the ages? Lee VS Yamaguchi is the biggest female fight in the history of Asia. Full stop. Period. Psst! Never before has there been a women’s world championship title on the line in Asia with a global broadcast to 1 billion homes across 70+ countries. And it will be shown live across Asia on FOX Sports too. We think this is already a good enough reason to catch this fight live, and be there on the night when history is made!
5) Because you will be blown away with excitement in the stadium
Imagine 12,000 screaming fans with an electrifying, adrenaline-pumping atmosphere like a rock concert. Yep, ONE Championship sure knows how to throw a massive event! If you have never been to one before, you need to attend this one. It is going to be huge. It is going to be loud. And it is going to be exciting.
