Angela Lee Faces Lena Tkhorevska At ONE: Spirit Of ChampionsAfter pulling off the first Twister in ONE Championship history earlier this month, unbeaten prospect Angela “Unstoppable” Lee takes on her toughest opponent to date on December 11th at ONE: “Spirit of Champions” in Pasay, Manila, Philippines. Lee battles Lena Tkhorevska in a featured matchup.

ONE officials announced the fight this evening. Lee has rapidly developed into one of the promotion’s top female stars thanks to her three first-round submission wins inside the ONE cage. Poland’s Tkhorevska has tasted defeat just one time as a pro and makes her ONE debut next month.

Lee (3-0-0) kicked off her amateur career in Hawaii and finished three straight opponents in the first round before turning pro in May at age 18. She racked up back-to-back submission wins over Aya Saber and Mona Samir in her first two fights for ONE Championship, which set up a clash against Natalie “The Kilapino” Gonzales Hills nine days ago. Lee weathered an early storm of strikes from Gonzales Hills and prevailed via the rarely-seen Twister near the midway point of the opening round.

Tkhorevska (3-1-0) turned pro in June 2013 and she made an instant impact by scoring a 65-second knockout victory in a main event matchup. She followed that up by submitting knockout artist Sylwia “Mała” Juśkiewicz three months later. Tkhorevska’s lone professional setback came in the form of a third-round technical decision loss to Iman Darabi in November 2013, and she now returns to MMA for the first time since submitting Anna Moldavchuk in just 39 seconds in a March 2014 bout.

ONE: “Spirit of Champions” takes place on December 11th at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Manila, Philippines. A contracted weight limit was not specified for the Lee-Tkhorevska bout.
