Mililani’s Angela Lee is back on the ONE Championship grind.
The organization announced on Sunday night at the reigning 115-pound champion will fight in a non-title-bout at 125-pounds against Michelle Nicolini on July 12 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Lee is coming off a fifth-round TKO loss to ONE 125-pound champion Xiong Jingnan in March.
At 9-1 in her career, many expected her to defend her atomweight crown, but the 22-year-old will again enter the cage at the strawweight division with what appears to be an opportunity to again position herself for an attempt at a second weight class title.
Nicolini (5-2) has competed for ONE four times, winning her first three bouts by first-round submission. A world champion in BJJ, Nicolini saw her streak snapped in her last outing, a unanimous decision loss to Tiffany Teo last November.
ONE Championship: Masters of Destiny will air on the B/R Live streaming service.
The main event will be a kickboxing bout rematch between Petchmorrakot Petchyindee and Giorgio Petrosyan.
