Andrea Lee captured the biggest win of her career earlier tonight (Sat., May 15, 2021) at UFC 262 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Toyota Center in Houston, Tex., when she finished veteran fighter Antonina Shevchenko via second-round submission (triangle armbar).
Lee looked good from the opening bell as she was able to land some sold strikes and go toe-to-toe with Shevchenko, who relied heavily on her Muay Thai clinch. At the start of Round 2 Lee was able to rush in and score top control during a transition to the mat. She worked a triangle choke for nearly three minutes before switching her position and slapping in the triangle armbar with moments left in the round.

Lee was 3-3 in UFC competition without any finishes coming into this “Prelims” affair so this was a massive win for her stock in the women’s flyweight division. This submission win should land “KGB” a top 10 opponent her next time as she tries to regain her momentum towards title contention.
