Adrian Lee believes he and his family came up with the perfect name to reopen their family gym while honoring his older sister, Victoria Lee.

On December 26, 2022, the Lee family suffered a tragedy that no family ever should. 18-year-old MMA prospect Victoria Lee tragically passed away. Reeling from the loss, the family closed United MMA Hawaii.

A year and a half later, the gym is set to reopen as the Prodigy Training Center, a tribute to Victoria who was known by fight fans as 'The Prodigy.'

"Well, the name Prodigy Training Center was actually my brother and his wife's idea," Adrian Lee said in an interview with ONE. "We were all just trying to brainstorm what would be a good name for the gym. Once we heard that, we were pretty set up."

On Friday, June 7, Adrian Lee will look to carry on the legacy his sister left behind as he makes his ONE Championship debut as part of the promotion's loaded ONE 167 event inside Bangkok's Impact Arena.

Adrian Lee ready to continue the Lee family legacy in his MMA debut at ONE 167

After scoring a slew of accolades as an amateur, including a 2023 high school state wrestling title in his native Hawaii and being a four-time National Youth MMA champion, the youngest of the Lee family is ready to put his skills to the test on martial arts' biggest global stage.

Meeting Lee at ONE 167 will be another debutant with something to prove — Antonio Mammarella.

As an amateur, Mammarella went 5-3 competing under the 3° Trofeo Italiano di MMA banner. In December 2023, he made his pro debut, scoring a second-round knockout against Aremiti Tinirau.

Will the Lee family legacy continue to reign supreme when the 18-year-old Adrian Lee makes his pro MMA debut on June 7?

ONE Championship fans in the United States and Canada can watch ONE 167 live and for free via Amazon Prime Video in U.S. primetime.
