Jakarta. Asia's global sports media property ONE Championship is partnering with Grab Singapore ahead of its hometown event "ONE: Unstoppable Dreams," at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on May 18 to offer exclusive training and a backstage experience with star martial artist Angela Lee.
The ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion will defend her title in a rematch against Japanese martial arts veteran Mei Yamaguchi. As part of the partnership, ONE and Grab Singapore will be holding two local contests inviting all Grab passengers, drivers and merchants to pledge their support for Lee, while competing to win a meet-and-greet and an exclusive training session with the champion.
"Angela is truly a role model for all of us at Grab - the focus, determination, tenacity, and courage it takes to pick yourself up after a fall and face a formidable opponent, is something we can certainly resonate with and greatly respect. We are excited to rally the nation behind her as she gears up to defend her title, while at the same time delight our customers with more exciting and rewarding experiences via GrabRewards,” Grab's chief executive and co-founder Anthony Tan said.
The two local contests will run from Apr. 23 to May 6. In the first, the public can show support for Angela by making a personal pledge on Facebook or Instagram using the #GrabForAngela hashtag. They should elaborate what they will do if Lee wins, including dyeing their hair green or walking around Orchard Road in their pyjamas. Lee will personally pick her three favorite pledges and the contributors will get to meet her backstage on her big fight night against Yamaguchi. In addition, for every pledge created, Grab's Anthony Tan will also be donating a dollar to a charity of Lee's choice.

Exclusive Training Session with Lee Participants of the second contest can log on to GrabRewards between the above dates to redeem the ONE Championship reward for 100 points, in a bid to win an exclusive training session with Lee. Top three participants with the most number of redemptions will win a pair of passes for an exclusive session, two VIP tickets to the ONE Championship event and a pair of signed gloves. The next 10 participants will win a pair of Gold-class tickets to the fight and a signed ONE Championship cap.

ONE Championship chief executive Chatri Sityodtong said: "ONE Championship has chosen to partner with Grab Singapore, one of the largest online-to-offline mobile platforms in Southeast Asia, ahead of ONE: Unstoppable Dreams that will take place right here at home in Singapore."
The 21-year-old "Unstoppable" Angela Lee of Singapore is considered one of ONE Championship’s most outstanding athletes, after an awe-inspiring victory over Yamaguchi in 2016, and has since then defended the title successfully on two occasions.
Lee’s beautiful combination of elite striking and grappling has proven to be a potent formula for success, as she has remained unbeaten in her career. Currently, she is widely-considered on a global scale to be one of the biggest names actively competing in the sport. The 35-year-old Japanese martial arts veteran Mei Yamaguchi is a female atomweight standout and a former ONE world title challenger from Tokyo. She is the DEEP Jewels Featherweight Champion, with a total of seven submissions and two knockouts in her 28-bout professional career. She is now set to take on champion Angela Lee in a highly-anticipated rematch.
