Andrea Lee is set to make her first octagon appearance at UFC 262 on May 15 when she takes on Antonina Shevchenko in a flyweight bout.
Lee (11-5) is looking to go and have fun in the fight as she feels the joy of the fight game has escaped her during her current three-fight losing streak, two of which came by split decision top contenders Lauren Murphy and Joanne Calderwood.
Outside of the cage, Lee has also been busy in the lead to her fight as she handles her own sponsorship opportunities, which has lead to her taking part in the promotional and business end of the sport.
Prior to the UFC 262 match up with Shevchenko, Lee spoke to MyMMANews about her training camp, the upcoming fight, the business side of the sport and her southern lifestyle. You can watch her full interview in the video above.
