Jessa Khan is excited about the opportunity that the large platform offered by ONE Championship will bring for her to cultivate an audience in Asia.
Khan, who is 21 years old, has established herself as a top contender for the title of finest female atomweight grappler anywhere in the world. She is currently working for the next stage of her professional development, which involves exhibiting her abilities on a global stage.
In an interview with Alex Wendling, the Cambodian-American fighter shared the following thoughts regarding her anticipated debut in the ONE Championship later this month:
“And now that I know that ONE Championship is very big, you know I think that this fight will be good and also me just working with ONE because a lot of people and my fans, they’re in Cambodia and just like in those other areas in Asia,” the fighter said. “And now that I know that ONE Championship is very big, you know I think that this fight will be good and also me just working with ONE.”
At ONE Fight Night 14 on September 29, Jessa Khan will make her debut in the ring as a promotional fighter. In order for Khan to have any chance of winning the first-ever women’s atomweight submission grappling world title, she needs to be ready to go against the American superstar Danielle Kelly. Kelly is currently ranked number one in the sport.
Khan and Kelly will not be facing off against one another for the first time in this competition.
At a Who’s #1 event that took place in February 2021, the best female grapplers in the world competed against one other. As soon as the allotted amount of time had passed, Khan was declared the winner by decision. Since then, they have continued to develop and find success, but Kelly has never forgotten about the loss that they suffered.
Kelly has firmly established herself as one of the key contributors to ONE Championship’s success in the submission game over the course of the past year and a half. The 27-year-old employee has a record of 2-0-1 in promotions and has received two performance bonuses totaling $50,000.
