    SINGAPORE – Angela Lee is set for a return after taking a break for the birth of her child as she stakes her ONE women’s atomweight title against Stamp Fairtex in the main event of ONE X on Saturday at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

    The 25-year-old Lee will be competing in her first bout since giving birth last April, and for her, the fight represents that she can still be one of the best fighters in the world while being a mother at the same time.

    'Mothers are the strongest people'

    “I think that this fight represents a lot,” said the American-Singaporean. “For me, it’s been a crazy journey this past two years. But I’ve worked harder than ever.”

    “I definitely want to make a statement and show that women and mothers of all people are the strongest people in the planet and everybody is going to see that on Saturday,” Lee added.

    Lee said the balancing act of being both a fighter and a mother has definitely changed the way she prepared for the bout against Stamp, who made a name for herself by winning the ONE Grand Prix while Lee was out.

    “It’s been different. I’ve been preparing for this fight for five months now. It’s like double the amount of time that I usually get for a fight camp. Trying to figure out the schedule to train and with the baby, it’s challenging.

    "But I’m really lucky that I have an amazing family, support team, and be able to do what I love to do and be a mom. I feel very lucky that I’m able to do so,” said Lee.

      As for Stamp, the Thai fighter is motivated to win against her idol.

      “For me, I’ll try my best to prevent her from using grappling and trying to use the takedown. I’ve been practicing to make sure that I use my best of MMA that I’ve practiced. I want to take down Angela,” said Stamp.
