  • 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.

“Permanently closed”

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

Victoria is the younger sister of ONE Championship atomweight champion Angela, and ONE two-division champion Christian.

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.

  1. One Championship just doesn’t sound right without the name Lee being in the mix up. As a diehard Lee fan, and the reason I have looked at MMA in a whole different fashion, my heart goes out to the whole Lee family. I’m surprised that a complete withdrawal of the Lee family from the sport is at the top of everyone’s thoughts. MMA is in their blood, and it runs very deep. Yes, they are devastated and grieving their loss, but give them the time and respect to grieve in their own way. The Lee family has touched and inspired uncountable people throughout the world, with their own lives to just disappear. And even only being 18, Victoria has too. They will be back in some way, and at a time they are ready. And Victoria Lee will never be forgotten.
