Trash talk is a common aspect of combat sports, regardless of whether it is boxing, mixed martial arts, wrestling, or anything else. Just look to individuals like Jake Paul and Conor McGregor as two people that shine in that area. But ONE Championship atomweight champ, Angela Lee, will not partake in those activities heading into her return to the cage.

“I think there’s huge mutual respect among us, I just appreciate the respect,” Lee said as she made the media rounds before her return to fighting. “I think that you don’t need to trash talk your opponent, I don’t think that’s who they are and that’s not who I am. We don’t need to put on a show for the world and create some kind of drama that’s not there.”

Angela Lee is coming back to defend her title against a new contender

Lee is expected to return to action in early 2022. Her last fight was a victory over Jingnan Xiong in October 2019. She then announced her pregnancy and ONE Championship held a tournament to build a contender while Lee enjoyed maternity leave. Ritu Phogat and Stamp are scheduled to compete in the tournament final on Friday’s ONE: Winter Warriors card.

“I just feel that I am inching closer to my goal and I’m super enthusiastic about it,” Phogat said. “I’m really excited about the upcoming match. I feel that Stamp won’t be able to beat me.”

Lee is recognized as the youngest individual to win a world title in MMA when she defeated Mei Yamaguchi in 2016 at 19 years of age. She’s held that title since, defending it four times before stepping away to start her family. During her title run, she did make an attempt to become a double champion but failed in her fight against Xiong Jing Nan for the ONE strawweight title.

ONE: Winter Warriors takes place on Friday, Dec. 3, 2021, live from the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore. Follow along with FanSided MMA for all your news and highlights.
