SINGAPORE: Singapore MMA darling, ‘Unstoppable’ Angela Lee made another impressive submission victory ... this time over Natalie Gonzales Hills of the Philippines in round one.

The 19-year-old gained her third professional win at ONE Championship’s ‘Pride Of Lions’ which was held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, Friday night.

The fight started with Hills smothering Lee aggressively with her Muay Thai punches and kicks.

Lee weathered the storm but ended up with her back on the canvas.
Lee then turned things around with a reversal on Hills, landing in full mount.

From there, she worked to take Hills’ back and secured a twister submission, forcing Hills to tap out and declare Lee the winner.


In a battle of tremendous strikers, Japanese fighter Kotetsu Boku’s impressive boxing display earned him a victory over highly-regarded Major Overall of the United States.

The action was tense in the first round as both fighters swung for the fences with wild, looping shots.

Boku used his trademark boxing to keep Overall honest while the American impressed the crowd with his flashy kicks and flying knees.

Boku came alive in the second round as he caught his opponent with a straight right hand, dropping Overall.

Though Overall was able to get back on his feet, Boku continued the onslaught, landing punch after punch to coerce referee Yuji Shimada to step in and stop the fight.

Elsewhere, at the main event, ONE Strawweight World Champion, Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke from Thailand defeated Yago Bryan of Brazil by unanimous decision to retain his title.

Both fighters traded shots in furious exchanges, with Dejdamrong choosing to tag Bryan continuously with high and low kicks, while Bryan opted to counter with left hooks.

A minor cut opened up above Dejdamrong’s right eye in round one, but was quickly patched up by his corner.

Much of the same action continued throughout the bout, but it was the champion who was the busier fighter down the stretch, earning the judges’ nod.
