Ok Rae Yoon and Christian Lee had a legendary fight in 2021 with the ONE Lightweight World Championship on the line. It was an action-packed war, with both fighters having great offensive moments.
ONE Championship has shared a clip of one such moment. 'The Warrior' is pursuing a takedown against South Korea's Ok. The South Korean fighter lands a hard knee while in the air on the face of Lee.
This 2021 fight saw a changing of the guard as Ok took the world title from the long-reigning ONE Lightweight king. The 24-year-old former ONE Lightweight World Champion was furious with the decision and demanded a rematch.
The Singaporean-American athlete got his wish and will have a rematch against Ok Rae Yoon on August 26 in the main event of ONE 160.
Christian Lee Looking to Change Tactics
“I'm very excited for the rematch. The decision didn't sit too well with me, and I know, personally, I know that I could have trained [harder] for that fight. I know that things could have gone very differently if I had been able to get the proper fight camp that I needed. "
He said that in his next August 26 fight, he will not leave it to chance. Lee continued:
"And so this time around, I'm making sure that I don't leave anything to question. I'm going to be working extremely hard for this one. And when the time comes down to it, I think it's going to be a very different fight.”
