The rematch between Angela Lee and Mei Yamaguchi is set for the Singapore Indoor Stadium on May 18. The champion had to pull out of last year’s fight after a serious car crash, but will finally defend her title against the Japanese challenger at ONE: Unstoppable Dreams.
Lee (8-0) beat Yamaguchi by decision to become the inaugural ONE atomweight champion. She has successfully defended the belt twice, but no fighter has pushed her as hard as the Japanese veteran did in 2016.
Yamaguchi (17-10-1) is coming off back-to-back ONE Championship wins, while Lee has been away from the cage for almost a year.
Before they step back in the cage opposite each other on Friday, take a look back at their full first fight from ONE: Ascent to Power.
