Lee (11-3) probably would have won under the traditional Western MMA scoring system, however ONE Championship wins fights overall rather than round, and the immense damage Xiong (18-2) exacted on Lee in the opener. round was finally what swayed the decision in her favor.

“Only my team and I really understand what I had to go through to really prepare for the match,” Xiong said later through a translator. “The audience here may have a different opinion, but I’m always ready. I’m ready for another fight with Angela Lee – whether it’s kickboxing, it’s MMA, let’s go.”

Xiong and Lee have previously faced each other twice in two memorable battles in 2019, splitting their series with one win each. In their first bout, Xiong defeated Lee by fifth-round TKO to defend her ONE Championship strawweight title.

Following his win, Musumeci respectfully asked to face ONE flyweight champion and MMA legend Demetrius Johnson in crossover conflict.

“I wouldn’t call it a call because you don’t call a legend like ‘Mighty Mouse,’ I just want to share the mat with him,” Musumeci said. “And we can make history together.”
