Andrea Lee discusses her upcoming fight against Viviane Araujo

Andrea Lee is all set for a major fight in the UFC flyweight division.

In just a few days on May 14 at UFC Vegas 54, Lee will meet Viviane Araujo in a meeting between two top 10 flyweight contenders.

For Lee, she’ll look to carry the momentum she built up in 2021 into her first fight of the 2022. Last year, she submitted Antonina Shevchenko and then stopped Cynthia Calvillo by way of a corner stoppage at the end of the second round.

Lee isn’t one to pay attention to the rankings, but she’s fully aware that a win will put her close to the top five and should put her right in the title mix at 125 pounds.

While she’s aware of what’s on the table in the future, her main focus right now is on wrapping up camp and getting the win at UFC Vegas 54.

Prior to the fight, Lee spoke with MyMMANews about her upcoming fight, her training camp which has featured a lot of workouts from the gym she built at home and driving out to Las Vegas for her fight.

You can watch her full interview in the video above.
