Following the victory, the younger sister of ONE Championship title holders Angela and Christian Lee was emotional in her post-fight interview.
“Honestly man, I used to make fun of my brother and sister for crying after they won but I understand, it’s so emotional,” said Lee. “This week has been an emotional rollercoaster. It was a lot of pressure but I wouldn’t have made it through without my mum and dad. I know my family are all back home watching right now and I’m so grateful for them.”
Victoria Lee now improves to 2-0 in her career with both victories coming via submission.
