This achievement would mean a lot for the phenomenal striker, as she has been putting time into perfecting the art of grappling. As divisional champion Angela Lee is a profound BJJ practitioner, this feat would boost her confidence in the grappling exchanges in a rematch with ‘Unstoppable’.

In their first meeting at the promotion’s 10-year-anniversary show, ONE X, Lee submitted Fairtex in the second round, after taking damaging shots from the Thai athlete on the feet in the initial round.

“Tonight, I had the pleasure and honor of promoting @stamp_fairtex to purple belt. She was my first student at Fairtex over 5 years ago and has been a blue belt for the last 3. No one works harder and has a better smile. I’m so proud of all you’ve accomplished. Big things are coming. Congratulations!” wrote BJJ coach Burnworth.
