At ONE on Prime Video 4, Christian Lee not only helped to further establish his already impressive career in ONE Championship, but he also added to the legacy of the Lee family. Largely led by reigning atomweight queen Angela Lee, the Lee family has quickly become the most dominant family of mixed martial artists in the world.

Following his massive win over Kiamrian Abbasov to capture the ONE welterweight championship, ONE’s most prolific finisher discussed his family's dominance today and the future generations that he says will be even better:

“My sister, she's the current atomweight world champion. She's doing amazing in her career. My little sister, she's going to be back in the ring soon, and you guys will see my little brother before long.”

Lee continued to praise his family by saying:

“So my family works extremely hard. And each of us is just doing what we love, on our own path. I think the work that we put in shows for itself, so I don't think any one of us is focused on what our family is doing, each of us is just doing our own thing, and the work shows for itself.”

Angela and Christian Lee are setting the stage for the next generation

With Christian Lee and his sister Angela absolutely dominating the world of ONE Championship, it’s crazy to believe that they are just the first two in a line of Lee family athletes who plan to make their mark in the Asia-based promotion. The next member of the family to make her mark in the circle is Victoria Lee.

Already 3-0 under the ONE banner before even graduating high school, Victoria Lee is scheduled to make her long-awaited return to the circle at ONE on Prime Video 6 against Zeba Bano. Speaking to South China Morning Post about his younger sister’s potential, Christian Lee said:

"She started so young at 16 years old and no one, maybe one percent of the population, less than that would know what it’s like to enter professional sports at 16 years old. It’s just amazing what she’s accomplished at such a young age."

Still waiting in the wings for his own ONE Championship debut is Adrian Lee, the younger brother of Christian and Angela Lee. While it may be a while before we see Adrian Lee grace the circle, we won’t have to wait quite as long to see Victoria Lee back in action.
