“My family and I are handling the situation to the best of our ability, as this is a very sensitive issue and one that as a public figure I wish was not taking place in a public forum. I respectfully ask that everyone respects our privacy at this time as we work towards resolutions and closure.”
“I look forward to returning to the Octagon and resuming my winning ways in the near future. Competing has always been a sanctuary for me and brings great joy to my life.”
"As an amateur I was 9-3 in MMA. I won several regional titles along the way. I was also a three-time Muay Thai World champ through the IKF and TBA. I was a two-time North American champ through the WKA. I won two state Golden Gloves boxing titles, two regional Golden Gloves, and 1 Women’s National Golden Gloves. I am also a two-time Naga World champ and a two-time North American Champ.”
“Origin of nickname: “Before you ask, it’s not a political statement. KGB came originally from my coach and the guys picking on me in the gym saying I look Russian. It kinda stuck but not until the 2014 Muay Thai world Championships did it really get roots."
"A Russian team coach saw the KGB on my shorts and asked my coach Donny if I was Russian. He said no and then the Russian coach exclaimed "WHY KGB THEN ?!?!" He was pretty agitated and I didn’t know what was gonna happen. Donny just said "SHE looks like a Russian chick, man.” He looked me up and down and said, "She does," then walked away. We fell out laughing. After I won the world championship that year the whole Russian team came up and took pictures with me. it was a great feeling and KGB has since been my brand.”
“The UFC is where I’ve always wanted to be and it’s where I feel I belong. I am a warrior and I want to test myself against the best on the biggest stage in the world.”

Point of View- A head-in-the-clouds kinda-sorta-fan thinks that ‘top UFC fighters can make a ridiculous amount of money for a single fight—especially if it’s such a big deal that it’s televised on a pay-per-view with a number in the title.’
Point of View- A financially concerned fan (S.Jkbs) retorts ’13k is peanuts for pro athletes. If … 3x fights per year, that’s only 39k… deduct trainer and other various fees… How on earth can you support yourself with a minuscule amount of money…They need to work another job… That’s terrible…!’

KGB- Victim of Domestic Violence
-In 2018 August, a warrant was out for the arrest of Lee’s husband-coach, Donny Aaron on charges of domestic violence and manslaughter. He was on the run as a fugitive till May 2019 when the cops finally arrested him from his hiding.
Till his arrest, Lee had to leave her home for a time, then later was granted a temporary restraining order against Aaron. At that time with no other place to live in, Lee was given a place to stay with her daughter by an old friend and long-time trainer, the UFC veteran and The Ultimate Fighter alum Tim Credeur.
Tim Credeur is the owner of Gladiators Academy in Lafayette and works in the Octagon, Dallas, Texas, acknowledges that both Lee and Aaron are his longtime friends and that Aaron’s domestic violence may affect KGB’s MMA Fighting.
Tim wants Lee to be the best possible version of herself she can be, “put it on the shelf”, and focus on the training and MMA career.
After his arrest Aaron, 43, was extradited to Caddo Parish, Louisiana, to face charges of failure to appear in court and domestic battery, and booked into Caddo Correctional Center. He was released on a $1,700 bond that same day.
– On 11th March 2016, during the Invicta FC 16 bout, Flyweight Andrea Lee tested positive for a banned diuretic, canrenone and/or spironolactone. She was informed via an email by the Nevada Athletic Commission notifying her, and her temporary suspension. She also to appear before the NAC for a disciplinary hearing.
On May 31, 2019, MMA Fighting confirmed the arrest of Aaron by Shreveport Police Department, on May 24 in Upshur County, Texas, when he was stopped by an officer for allegedly speeding in a school zone and discovered an illegal amount of marijuana in his possession.
He was extradited to Caddo Parish, La., and charged with failure to appear in court and domestic battery. Aaron has been on the run since a warrant was issued for his arrest last August.
And this is not the first time. I 2009, Aaron was found guilty of manslaughter for the death of Ronald Jamison after shooting Jamison multiple times outside of Aaron’s home, and he was previously charged with assaulting an ex-wife’s fiancee.
In both instances, Aaron was arrested and served jail time.
When serving his jail sentence, Aaron got himself tattooed all over and the posted his pictures on the net. There was outrageous indignation in response over the tattoos Aaron claimed he got them to survive during his prison stint. He replied that he does not want to cover his tattoos because in his defense he said that “it would make him look “even more redneck”!
Well, go figure.
And then what happens is a total confuser. Andrea Lee comes to her husband’s defense over the highly offensive ink, and in a now-deleted Twitter post, she wrote, “It’s just a Nazi tattoo. You sensitive-ass mofos.”
That did not go over well with the Twitterverse, and received severe backlash for her insensitivity. After removing the tweet, she tweeted back on June 3, 2018, requesting her fans to accept her full apology for defending her husband.
What goes around, come around, twitter, twitter, tweet!
