This comes as athletes from all over the world have been dropping dead suddenly in recent months.
Rising MMA star Victoria Lee has died at 18, her family announced.
Lee’s sister Angela Lee, also a professional MMA fighter and One Championship atomweight title holder, made the announcement Saturday on Instagram.
“She has gone too soon and our family has been completely devastated since then,” Angela wrote. “We miss her…[m]ore than anything in this world. Our family will never be the same. Life will never be the same. Victoria was the most beautiful soul who ever lived. She was the best little sister in the world.”
Before her death on Dec. 26, Victoria held a 3-0 record in the One Championship, South East Asia’s biggest fighting promotion, and was scheduled to fight again on January 14th.
