Andrea Lee
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.

May 19, 2018
Lee defeated Veronica Macedo via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Santiago, Chile.
Despite supposedly being a striker, Lee had her best moments on the ground. She easily entered the clinch against her inexperienced opponent and scored takedowns. She took the back on multiple occasions and threatened with submissions, but she was never close to finishing the fight. Lee seems like someone that the UFC would like to push. However, she will need to sharpen her entire MMA game in order to make noise in the UFC flyweight division. Nonetheless, the two earned Fight of the Night bonuses for their efforts.
