Andrea Lee


Set to face Shevchenko
February 25, 2021
Lee (undisclosed) will take on Antonina Shevchenko on the UFC's May 15 card, reports.
Lee was originally scheduled to face Gillian Robertson on Dec. 12 but was forced to pull out of the fight. Next up will be far from a cakewalk for Lee as she prepares to take on a fighter in Shevchenko is looking to carry over the momentum from a victory over Ariane Lipski in November. Lee outpaces her opponent in both significant strikes landed per minute and takedowns per 15 minutes, so she will likely aim to push the pace of the fight as much as possible. She will, however, yield two inches of height to her opponent, though she does sport a two-inch reach advantage.

Fight with Gillian Robertson on tap
November 23, 2020
Lee (11-5-0) and Gillian Robertson (9-4-0) agreed Friday to face one another in a flyweight fight Dec. 12 at UFC 256 in Las Vegas, Mike Heck of reports.
Lee returns to the Octagon looking for her first win since July 2019, as she's dropped three straight fights to even her UFC record at 3-3. The 31-year-old suffered the most lopsided defeat of her career her last time out Sept. 12, when Roxanne Modafferi scored a unanimous-decision victory.
Suffers third straight defeat
September 12, 2020
Lee lost to Roxanne Modafferi via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
That result -- Lee's third straight decision loss -- figures to end any potential hope she had of eventually making a run at 125 pounds. Lee entered the UFC in May 2018 with a ton of promise following a strong run in Invicta, but her game simply hasn't translated. She began her run with three straight victories (all via decision) before the three recent defeats. Lee's athletic and durable but has very little power, in addition to a history of fighting down to her competition. Lee will be turning 32 years of age this coming February, so the days of her being a "young" prospect have come and gone.
September matchup with Modafferi
July 1, 2020
Lee and Roxanne Modafferi agreed to a flyweight bout September 12 at UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas, Nolan King and John Morgan of USA Today report.
Lee is coming off back-to-back split decision defeats to Joanne Calderwood and Lauren Murphy, the latter of which was a frustrating loss in both terms of the judgement and her performance. Modafferi is also fresh off a loss to Murphy in June, though she fell via a unanimous decision.
Second straight split decision loss
February 8, 2020
Lee lost to Lauren Murphy via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 27-30) at UFC 247 on Saturday in Houston.
The Texas Athletic Commission doesn't have the best reputation in the world of MMA and they aren't helping themselves on this evening. This marked the second fight of the night in which a judge awarded a mind numbing 30-27 scorecard to a fighter who ended up winning a split decision but probably deserved to lose the fight. Lee has a legitimate gripe here. No, she wasn't great. She engaged Murphy in the brawl she was seeking and failed to use her athletic gifts to pull away at any point during the fight. She also absorbed too much punishment on the feet from an opponent with an extremely limited offensive arsenal. That being said, Lee appeared to do enough in both the first and third frames to take a decision. It's a crushing loss for "KGB" given the fact she dropped a split decision to Joanne Calderwood in her previous fight in September.
