Victoria Lee Remains Unbeaten With TKO Win Over Souza

Pictures from the fight between Victoria Lee and Victoria Souza at ONE: REVOLUTION

Victoria “The Prodigy” Lee walked into the Singapore Indoor Stadium expecting the toughest bout in her young mixed martial arts career. But then, she made it look easy.

The 17-year-old wunderkind continued her meteoric rise in the women’s atomweight division, scoring a dominant second-round TKO win over Victoria “Vick” Souza at ONE: REVOLUTION on Friday, 24 September.

Souza came out swinging in the first round, taking the center of the Circle and closing the distance with every chance she got. 

That approach backfired, however. Lee connected with a front kick to the face and then used the Brazilian’s aggression to score a quick takedown midway through the frame.

From there, the Singaporean-American moved Souza to the Circle Wall while trying to pass her guard. “Vick” managed to get up momentarily, but not before eating a solid knee from the clinch.

It didn’t take long for the match to hit the ground again. Lee tossed the Brazilian to the canvas, but the Double Attack representative successfully reversed positions and ended up on top of Lee.

That didn’t deter “The Prodigy” from attacking, though, as she wrapped up a triangle choke while throwing big elbows from the bottom. 

Lee then transitioned to an armbar in the final ten seconds of the round, but Souza was able to hold out until the bell.

The competitors once again exchanged blows in the middle of the Circle at the start of the second, but Lee didn’t waste any time and forced the match to the ground before quickly landing four unanswered elbows. 

She then tried to mount Souza but settled for taking her foe’s back instead. From there, “The Prodigy” continued to rain down elbows before returning to half-guard, pinning Souza’s right arm with her feet, and landing more strikes. 

“Vick” managed to stand back up, but Lee – who maintained a guillotine choke even as they stood – easily forced her opponent back to the ground. 

The moment they hit the mat once more, the teen star pounced for the finish, landing elbows and punches from half-guard as the referee called off the action at 3:58 of the second round.

DA 0675

With the impressive result, Lee moved to 3-0 in professional mixed martial arts, with all three victories coming in a busy 2021.
