MMA champion Angela Lee on Tuesday survived a horrific car accident, as per ONE Championship chief Chatri Sityodong.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Sityodtong said Lee dozed off behind the wheel while heading to her morning training.

Sityodtong also said that according to police, Lee’s vehicle flipped several times.

Fortunately for Lee, she only suffered “a concussion, some minor burns and a banged up body.”

Sityodtong said he saw photos of the car and it could’ve been fatal had Lee not put on a seatbelt.

“I saw photos of the damaged car, and it was a complete wreck.”

The 21-year-old Lee, who is among ONE Championship’s top stars, has been pulled out from her scheduled rematch against Mei Yamaguchi for the women’s atomweight title on Nov. 24 in Singapore.

“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.”

Lee quickly emerged as ONE’s biggest draws since making her debut in 2015. She is currently unbeaten after eight fights.
