ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion “Unstoppable” Angela Lee is already a household name in Singapore – but “The Lion City’s” resident queen of mixed martial arts is about to increase her star power around the globe.
According to an announcement on 13 August by ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong, Lee will be one of six athletes to appear as guests on the forthcoming ’The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition.’
“I am excited to announce the ONE Championship athletes and World Champions ready to join me on ‘The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition’ as special guest stars,” Sityodtong said in a press release.
Those guest stars include Lee and five others:
- ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon “The Truth” Vera
- ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix Champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson
- ONE Women’s Strawweight World Champion “The Panda” Xiong Jing Nan
- Indian Wrestling Champion Ritu “The Indian Tigress” Phogat
- Multiple-time Karate World Champion “Super” Sage Northcutt
Through physical challenges, each of the six athletes will test the athletic skills and cardio of the 16 contestants, who will be vying for the chance to work alongside Sityodtong at ONE’s headquarters in Singapore.
“Our athletes at ONE Championship are the backbone of our organization,” Sityodtong added. “They are real-life, modern-day heroes who inspire the world with their incredible stories. Their discipline and wisdom will inspire and mentor our contestants. It is my honor to star alongside these amazing human beings on the show.”
Lee, who splits her time between Singapore’s Evolve MMA and Hawaii’s United MMA, aired her excitement to take part in the reality show that will merge two distinctly dissimilar worlds.
“’The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition’ is a great opportunity to bring together two very different worlds – martial arts and business, and I’m excited to see how those two worlds unite,” Lee said.
“I’m honored to be able to share my experiences, my talents, and my presence on the show. Being the youngest mixed martial arts World Champion in history, I know I have a lot to offer the contestants as far as experience and work ethic goes, and I can’t wait to impart some of my knowledge that could help them in their journey. As far as physical challenges go, I am ready!”
