JAKARTA – As the first mom-champ and the youngest-ever World Champion in ONE Championship’s history, Angela Lee has inspired martial-arts fans around the world, and in the newly released The Anatomy of A Fighter docu-series, we can see the chronicles of her return to action following the birth of her daughter Ava Marie.

The release, titled The Comeback Story of “Unstoppable” Angela Lee, also features some highlights of her title-defense fight against Stamp Fairtex this past March, where the atomweight queen submitted her Thai rival in the second round via rear-naked choke.

“Unstoppable” will return to headline ONE Fight Night 2: Xiong vs. Lee III on the morning of Oct. 1 in Singapore Indoor Stadium, as she moves up a weight class in pursuit of second gold against ONE Women’s Strawweight World-Champion Xiong Jing Nan. The event will broadcast live during North America’s prime time.

The documentary details Lee’s journey and preparation during her training camp for the Stamp’s fight. It was her first fight since giving birth to her daughter in 2021.

In 2020, a few months after she defended her atomweight belt against Xiong, Lee stepped away from the circular cage when she announced her pregnancy. During her absence, the division got even more stacked, and ONE Championship organized a ONE Atomweight World Grand Prix tournament to determine her next challenger.

The video follows Lee’s return to training while she was embarking on a new journey as a mother. It captures her final preparations ahead of her highly anticipated return to the Circle. It also features insights from the people closest to her, including her father, Ken, and her husband, Bruno Pucci.

Angela Lee, the long-reigning ONE Atomweight World Champion, lives up to her “Unstoppable” moniker. Since debuting in 2015, the 26-year-old champion has been undefeated in her division, finishing nine of her 11 opponents in the process.

On Saturday, fans will see if Xiong Jing Nan is able to stop her to get the second World Title.
