3 Things That Can Actually Stop ‘Unstoppable’ Angela Lee

Jul 10, 2020

ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion “Unstoppable” Angela Lee has certainly lived up to her nickname.

The 24-year-old has defeated every atomweight she has faced inside the Circle, and she is determined to keep her undefeated streak intact.

But while the Singaporean-American has been flawless in her weight class, she isn’t completely invincible outside of mixed martial arts.

Here are three things that can actually stop the “Unstoppable” warrior in her tracks.

#1 Buffets

Lee is a total foodie.

The reigning atomweight queen finds comfort in food, and if she isn’t training for a ONE World Title match, she has no problem hitting the buffet line.

“I cannot help myself. If I see an all-you-can-eat buffet, I’m diving in there. We’re going for thirds and fourths,” she says with a chuckle.

“I love food. I’m a sucker for trying all kinds of new foods. It’s one of the things I really enjoy, so if I see food, I’m definitely going to stop in my tracks.”



#2 Dogs

Nothing can make Lee’s heart melt quite like a cute dog.

That shouldn’t be too surprising, as the Singaporean-American is the proud dog mom to Rocky, an American Bulldog, and Athena, an American Bully.

And if Lee spots someone walking their furry companion on the streets of Waipahu, Hawaii, she has to stop and meet them.

“I am a sucker for animals, and especially dogs,” she says. “So, if I see a cute dog over there, I’m going to go ask [the owner] if I can pet it. It’s in my nature.”

#3 Babies

The only other thing that can stop “Unstoppable” is a baby.

Whenever Lee sees a newborn, she’s instantly hypnotized by the tiny human’s presence and wants to play with it.

“Babies are just so cute,” she gushes. “They are just full of love, and their cheeks are so chubby… and their ankles are so chubby!”

In fact, the mere thought of a baby has already stopped the atomweight queen in her tracks.
