Victoria Lee, one of the best young mixed martial artists in the world, died at the age of 18, her family says. Her sister, Angela, wrote on Instagram on Saturday, “She left us way too soon, and our family has been heartbroken ever since.” “We miss her…” The most important thing in the world.
After this, our family will never be the same. Never again will anything be the same. Victoria’s soul was the most beautiful on Earth. She was the best little sister in the world.”
Lee was born and raised in Hawaii. His family has a long history in mixed martial arts (MMA). Angela is the atomweight world champion in the ONE Championship, and Christian is the lightweight world champion. ONE is the largest MMA event in Asia.
Victoria Lee, who was known as “The Prodigy,” was thought to become a world champion like her siblings. She won her first three ONE fights, but in 2022, she stopped fighting to finish high school.
She was also the junior world champion in pankration, which is a form of wrestling that comes from ancient Greece. Lee was very interested in her siblings’ careers.
When they fought, she would bake them cakes. In December, she said that her brother’s recent win of the world title had given her motivation.
She said, “I’m so proud of my older brother!” “Being in the gym and seeing how hard he worked and pushed himself during all of his training, and then watching the fight and seeing how beautifully it went down.”
The head of ONE, Chatri Sityodtong, also said nice things about Lee. He wrote on Facebook, “I met Victoria for the first time when she was 11 years old.” “Over the years, I saw her grow as a martial artist and as a person. I’ll never forget how wise, kind, and selfless she was for her age.
Even back then, she was a natural at martial arts, but I could tell she was so much more. Victoria had a heart of gold and a wonderful mind. She put everyone else before herself. She wanted to make the world a better place with her life. Victoria will always be remembered as a beautiful and precious soul.”
