ONE Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong wrote on his Facebook page Lee was driving to training on Monday (Tuesday, Manila time) when she fell asleep. He says Lee suffered a concussion and some minor burns.

Sityodtong didn't indicate when Lee would return to fighting.

Sityodtong didn't immediately respond to a Facebook message from The Associated Press seeking comment.
