MMA champion Angela Lee hurt in ‘terrible’ car crash.

ONE Championship atomweight champion Angela Lee was involved in a car crash and will miss her 24 November fight in Singapore.

In a Facebook post put up on 8 November, ONE Championship Founder and Chairman Chatri Siyodtong said: “ONE Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee got into a terrible car accident yesterday with her car flipping over 5-6x according to the police.

“She was driving to her morning training at the gym when she fell asleep. Miraculously, she survived with only a concussion, some minor burns, and a banged up body.

“If she was not wearing a seatbelt, it would have most certainly been a different story. I saw photos of the damaged car, and it was a complete wreck.

“Angela will not be competing on November 24. We are all blessed and relieved that Angela will make a full recovery. Please join me in sending love, prayers, and positive energy to Angela and her family.”
