Jessa Khan gave a very specific and in-depth analysis on how she evaluates Danielle Kelly’s grappling talents.
At a Who’s #1 event that took place in February 2021, Khan defeated Kelly via submission grappling and earned a huge victory. Two and a half years later, the top female jiu-jitsu athletes in the world will compete against one another once more, but this time the stakes will be considerably higher.
Khan and Kelly will square off against one another on September 29 to determine who will win the first ever ONE atomweight women’s submission grappling world championship. The fight that will go down in the annals of MMA history is likely to be one of the talking points at the loaded ONE Fight Night 14 event.
During an interview with ONE, Khan shared the following thoughts regarding her prospective challenger:
To put it another way, I’d say that she has some really good wrestling. She is incredibly adaptable and has strong defensive capabilities. But as I’ve already stated, the vast majority of the time, that’s all I truly see.
Danielle Kelly will have the upper hand in the Circle compared to Jessa Khan, despite the fact that Jessa Khan has experience competing against top-tier talent.
Kelly has three times competed under the ONE banner, which has resulted in her receiving two performance incentives totaling $50,000. The fight that kicked off the American fighter’s promotional career ended in a draw, but she rebounded to defeat Mariia Molchanova and Ayaka Miura in consecutive bouts.
On September 29, Jessa Khan and Danielle Kelly will each have an incredible opportunity to display their talents in front of a big audience. The two atomweight submission grapplers have been added to a fight card that already features numerous other enticing bouts, including two other battles for world titles.
Inside of Singapore Indoor Stadium is where you’ll find all of the action from the competition that will be led by women.
