ONE Championship will see another Lee walk down the aisle. The youngest Lee family member, Adrian, has signed a contract with the promotion. The teen made the announcement on his Instagram page on Monday.

Lee is no stranger to success. He has followed in the footsteps of all of his siblings with an impressive list of credentials before turning pro. In 2022, Lee captured an amateur pankration title, and in 2023, he became the Hawaii State Wrestling Champion. It’s an impressive feat that sets him up for a smooth transition into professional MMA.

“Contract signed. Thank you Chatri Sityodtong for giving me this amazing opportunity to showcase my skills and fight in one of the biggest organizations in the world,” Lee wrote on social media.

His family has been alongside him every step of the way. On his own Instagram page, Christian, the ONE Lightweight and Welterweight MMA World Champion, heralded his brother’s recent pankration title defense in Hawaii. He even called him a future World Champion.

After his brother’s post, Christian followed suit with a picture of the two together with his signed contract. The reigning two-division king sees a bright future for Adrian. However, the bar has been set exceptionally high.

Not only is Christian a two-division World Champion, Angela became the youngest World Champion in MMA history when she won the inaugural ONE Atomweight MMA World Title in 2015. It is a title she never lost and only relinquished when she officially retired from the sport.

No timetable has been set for Adrian’s professional debut in ONE Championship. However, all the Lees have made debuts as teens under ONE’s banner to great success. Now is his time to carve out his path and potentially begin a legacy not seen in the sport to date.
