Could Angela Lee be Asia’s Ronda Rousey?

She scored her fifth straight submission in the ONE cage against American flyweight Rebecca Heintzman, and is on the run for ONE Championship‘s first female champ title.

According to reports, the half Singaporean, half Korean fighter has a black belt in Taekwondo and a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Her younger brother also just recently entered the MMA scene.

With her record and credentials, it’s not hard to imagine how far she’s going to go in MMA.

She’s scheduled to fight Japan’s Mei Yamacguchi for her first title on May 6. If she wins, she would be the youngest MMA title-holder ever.
