Lee lost to Joanne Calderwood via split decision (27-30, 29-28, 28-29) at The Arena on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.
Lee controlled the fight with her wrestling in Round 1 but seemed to gas thereafter, which allowed her opponent to use her powerful striking to great effect. Lee had won all three of her UFC fights heading into the bout but ran into an opponent who could take what she dished out and still be there, resulting in disappointment. Lee falls to 11-3 in professional MMA as a result of the loss.

Controls range in victory
June 22, 2019
Andrea Lee defeated Montana De La Rosa via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night 154 in Greenville, South Carolina on Saturday.
It was clear that Lee's opponent wanted to get this fight to the ground, but Lee was all over it, pressuring the head and digging underhooks to ensure she was never on the mat for long. This led to a gassed De La Rosa getting soundly outworked for the better part of the second and third frames. Lee came into the organization as a highly-regarded kickboxer but has since shown a level of offensive and defensive wrestling and grappling that could take her far in this division. She improves to 11-2 in professional MMA as a result of the victory, having won her last seven fights.

Makes a difference with her volume
February 17, 2019
Lee defeated Ashlee Evans-Smith via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC on ESPN 1 on Sunday in Phoenix.
In order to take this fight, Lee needed to stop takedowns and get off with her striking. For the most part, she did that in this fight. Evans-Smith continually went for takedowns, but she was really only able to hold position on the ground for an extended period once. On the feet, both fighters landed their offense. However, Lee's output was much higher and that carried her to a decision victory. Lee improves to 10-2 as a professional and 2-0 in the UFC.
