HONOLULU — Angela Lee, a Vancouver-born mixed martial arts fighter, is recovering after a car accident in Hawaii.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported the One Championship female world atomweight champion will miss her title defence scheduled for Nov. 24 in Singapore.

One Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong wrote on his Facebook page Lee was driving to training on Monday when she fell asleep. He said Lee suffered a concussion and some minor burns.

"If she was not wearing a seatbelt, it would have most certainly been a different story," he said.

Sityodtong didn’t indicate when Lee would return to fighting.

St-Pierre didn’t want any tune-up bouts, nor did the UFC require him to fight his way through the rankings before meeting the current champ in the main event of UFC 217.

"We are all blessed and relieved that Angela will make a full recovery," he said. "Please join me in sending love, prayers, and positive energy to Angela and her family."

Sityodtong didn’t immediately respond to a Facebook message from The Associated Press seeking comment.

One Championship is a Singapore-based promotion that dominates the burgeoning Asian market for professional MMA.

Lee is a former Hawaii state wrestling champion and the daughter of two martial arts instructors. She was born in Vancouver and raised in Hawaii by her South Korean mother and Singaporean father.

Lee became the first female MMA world champion from Hawaii with a unanimous decision over Mei Yamaguchi in May 2016. She was scheduled to defend her title in a rematch against Yamaguchi later this month.

Lee, 21, announced her engagement to fellow fighter Bruno Pucci last month.

The reigning welterweight champ has repeatedly deemed a potential bout with GSP one which could solidify him as the greatest 170-pound fighter of all time, although he told St-Pierre he is willing to accommodate him and move up to middleweight if need be.
