UFC fighter Kajan Johnson and ET Canada online writer Shakiel Mahjouri invite MMA’s most colourful personalities to share crazy, entertaining and personal stories.
Andrea Lee’s name was all over the MMA media outlets after her husband was accused of domestic violence. Fellow fighter Jessica-Rose Clark offered to fly Lee and her daughter to stay with her. Two weeks later, the two women were scheduled to fight each other.
Andrea Lee: “I received the message way later because I stayed off the Internet. I wasn’t checking any messages. I got a message from my friend that lives with Clark and my friend told me that she had offered that.”
Andrea Lee: “I told her to tell Clark ‘thank you, but I can’t leave the state. I have a lot of court stuff coming up and I can’t take [my daughter] Aynslee away.’ I’m trying to keep her as sheltered from everything as I possibly can. She has school and stuff.”
Andrea Lee: “It was strange to be asked to fight Clark. “I have always been a supporter of Jessy Jess but when I got this fight I was like ‘crap.’ It was so weird that the UFC would offer her to me. It’s all business.”
