Amateur action

Prangley was representing AKA and travelled all the way from Idaho in order to fight Lee. The American was listed as 1-0 as an amateur although results at this level of MMA are not always recorded.

In a short video shared by Lee on Instagram he can be seen picking Prangley up and slamming him to the ground. Both fighters were wearing head protection and shin guards along with the padded amateur MMA gloves.

Ringside at the Edith Kanakaole Tennis Stadium were ONE Championship stars Christian Lee, Angela Lee and Victoria Lee. It seems to be just a matter of time until their younger brother signs with the Singapore based promotion.

Good year

Victoria Lee congratulated her brother on winning what she describes as a ‘Toughman Pankration world title’. She has a fight of her own coming up. the teenager has been matched with Zeba Bano at ONE on Prime Video 6 in Bangkok next month.

It has been a good year for the family but there have been a couple of setbacks. Christian Lee controversially lost to Ok Rae Yoon which cost him his lightweight title.

He would go on to regain it by stopping Yoon in the second round. Lee then moved up in weight to finish Kiamrian Abbasov and become the promotion’s welterweight champion too.

Angela Lee also made a successful return after taking time out to give birth to her first daughter. She submitted Stamp Fairtex in an atomweight title fight at the start of the year.

But the reigning atomweight champion came up short in her second shot at the strawweight belt. She survived a torrid first round but ultimately dropped a decision to Xiong Jing Nan.

There was also disappointment for her husband, Bruno Pucci, who suffered his third straight defeat. But the Lee family remains a force to be reckoned with and will be hungry for more success in 2023.
