Tragic news has emerged that One FC rising star Victoria Lee died at just 18-years-old on December 26th, though at this stage the reason for her passing has not been announced.
Lee’s death was confirmed by her older sister Victoria, who is One FC’s long-time atomweight champion, while her brother Christian is also a two-division titleholder in the promotion.
“On December 26, 2022 our family experienced something no family should ever have to go through… It is incredibly difficult to say this… Our Victoria passed away,” Angela Lee wrote.
“She has gone too soon and our family has been completely devastated since then. We miss her. More than anything in this world. Our family will never be the same. Life will never be the same.
“Victoria was the most beautiful soul who ever lived. She was the best little sister in the world. The best daughter, the best granddaughter and the best godma / aunty to Ava and Alia.
“We miss you so much sis. More than you could ever realize. We’re all broken. Because a piece of you was in each of us and when you left, those pieces were ripped out of us. We will never be the same.
“Each and every little thing makes me think of you. From the sun rays, to the sunset. You taught us to see the beauty in the simple things. You were our bright light. Our sunshine. And that will never change. You were perfect in every way. The best person I knew. The most beautiful girl, inside and out. We love you Victoria. I love you Sprout. Until the end of time.
“Please give our family grace and respect during this most difficult time. And please, check on your loved ones. Keep checking on them. Give them hugs and tell them how much they mean to you. You just never know.”
Despite her young age, Victoria Lee had already shown the ability to follow in the footsteps of her famous siblings.
Known as ‘The Prodigy’, in her younger years Lee had been a two-time Hawaiian Pankration Junior World Champion, a Hawaii State wrestling champion and IMMAF Junior World Champion.
At just 16-years-old, Lee signed for ONE FC and by the time of her death she had compiled a perfect 3-0 record, earning two wins via submission and one via TKO.
