ANGELA “Unstoppable” Lee continued to live up to her moniker by retaining her ONE Atomweight World Championship with a spectacular submission of top contender Istela Nunes of Brazil during ONE: Dynasty of Champions at the Singapore Indoor Stadium last Friday, May 26.

In an exciting main event showdown between two talented females Lee overcame the spirited challenge of Nunes to win by submission in the second round.

After catching Nunes with a twister in the first stanza, the bout appeared all but over. However, through sheer willpower and determination, Nunes was able to power through the situation and survive.

In the second round, Lee went right back to work on the ground, finishing Nunes with an anaconda choke to retain her title.
