Andrea Lee looking to make dream of UFC a reality

Andrea Lee said, "I'm fighting Heather Bassett. She's from Wisconsin, and her record is 4-2."

A WIN WOULD GIVE LEE THE INAGURAL L-F-A FLYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP.

Lee said, "They've never had a 125 championship holder. I expect it to be a pretty fun fight."

AS AN ADDED BONUS... THE FIGHT IS IN HER BACK YARD... AT BOSSIER'S HORSESHOE CASINO.

Lee said, "It's awesome. It's been over a year or almost a year since I fought her last. It's really exciting that I'm going to be able to have all of my friends, my family, my fans here to support me."

BUT WHEN LEE STEPS INTO THE RING FOR THE TITLE FIGHT... SHE'LL BE BRINGING A SECRET WEAPON WITH HER... HER HUSBAND... DONNY AARON... WILL BE IN HER CORNER... WHY DOES HE GET A SPECIAL SEAT?... BECAUSE HE'S ALSO HER COACH.

Lee said, "It's good. It has it's ups and downs, but the fact he's always in my corner and alwasy pushing me, making me strive to be the best I can be, really plays a role in who I am and how far I can go."

AND HOW FAR DOES LEE HOPE TO GO... WELL THAT'S AN EASY QUESTION... THE ULTIMATE GOAL IS THE U-F-C.

Lee said, "It's at the top of my dreams right now, and to get that call would mean everything you know."

ON FEBRUARY 17TH... LEE GIVE IT EVERYTHING SHE'S GOT... AND IF THINGS GO AS PLANNED... SHE'LL BE COMING HOME A CHAMPION
