In order to be ready for her fight for the world title against Jessa Khan, Danielle Kelly put herself through one of the most demanding training camps of her career. Because of this, the Silver Fox BJJ athlete claims that while she was working on perfecting the numerous techniques she uses in her game, she suffered defeat on multiple times.
In the co-main event of ONE Fight Night 14, which will take place inside the Singapore Indoor Stadium on September 29, the 27-year-old superstar will compete against the Cambodian-American newcomer. The event will take place on Friday.
Given that she will be defending her ONE atomweight submission grappling world title against an opponent who has already prevailed against her, it is only natural that the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt would not be cutting any corners in preparation for this bout.
When asked about her entire training camp, Danielle Kelly gave an interview to Combat Press, during which she described it as psychologically taxing yet thrilling.
In her words:
“I’ve spent each day focusing on her. And if I absolutely have to say it, this summer camp has been both stressful and fun. I mean, I’ve been given the boot, but at the same time, I’ve been putting in a lot of work in the gym. Therefore, you should know that I am ready for everything she throws at me.

Not only does the local of New Jersey want to stake her claim to the 26 pounds of gold that is up for grabs, but she also has her sights set on gaining revenge on Khan, who prevailed over her in their first matchup, which took place in February of 2021.
As a result, Danielle Kelly has been concentrating on enhancing even the most minute aspects of her arsenal in order to ensure that she achieves the greatest triumph of her career and ONE gold at ONE Fight Night 14, which will take place in primetime in the United States on September 29.
