Angela Lee issues statement regarding car crash that forced her to withdraw from ONE Championship title fight

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Angela Lee, the atomweight title holder in ONE Championship, issued her first statement after her car accident earlier this week that forced her out of her title fight against challenger Mei Yamaguchi.

In an Instagram post she shared online Friday afternoon, Lee apologized to Yamaguchi about her withdrawal from the fight after falling asleep at the wheel early Monday morning driving to the gym, which resulted in her car hitting a guardrail.

Here is her full statement below:

On Monday November 6, 2017 I was in a car accident.

Lee didn't give a timetable for her possible return to the cage to defend her title for a third time, but did indicate that she hopes to return soon.
