- Lee family-owned United MMA Hawaii gym has “permanently closed” shortly after the death of ONE’s Victoria
- A report said the gym has already notified its active members about the shut down
Victoria Lee’s untimely passing, without a doubt, has devastated her entire family. As the Lee family grieves, they appear to have decided to shut down their United MMA Hawaii gym in Waipahu.
Shortly after Victoria’s tragic death, Lee family’s United MMA Hawaii gym’s Instagram page changed its description to “permanently closed!!!”
Combat sports podcast host Todd Atkins also tweeted about the news, adding the gym has already handed out “notices” to its members, informing them about the abrupt cease operations.
“United MMA Hawaii sent out notices stating “all memberships will be canceled and students will no longer be billed moving forward.” Their IG says the gym is “permanently closed”,” Atkins wrote.
It’s a strong indication that Victoria’s passing has deeply affected the entire Lee family that it seems like its members have lost the drive to continue running their gym.
Gone too soon
On her Instagram account, Angela lamented the death of her beloved baby sister.
“She has gone too soon and our family has been completely devastated since then. We miss her. More than anything in this world,” Lee wrote.
Indeed, the MMA world lost a future star in Victoria as she has gone unbeaten in both amateur and pro. She logged a 3-0 record in ONE Championship as a strawweight phenom, all by way of finishes. Victoria won all of her three ONE bouts in 2021 with the latest coming by way of a TKO over Victoria Souza at ONE: Revolution.
Victoria died at 18 years old but the Lee family opted not to disclose the cause of her death. A commemoration of her life and MMA career is set to take place before her burial on January 22.
