American grappler Danielle Kelly recently channeled her inner Kim Possible, leaving Disney fans online feeling nostalgic. Known for her impressive skills in the world of submission grappling, Kelly has been making waves in the combat sports community.
Currently awaiting a phone call to confirm her next grappling submission match, Kelly has already made a significant impact since signing with ONE Championship in February 2022. With two straight wins and one draw under her belt, she has established herself as a rising star in the sport.
As the first-ever women’s submission grappler signed under ONE Championship, the Philadelphia star is driven by her desire to achieve greatness and secure a championship world title. However, she has a specific vision for the path she wants to take.
Following her recent victory over Ayaka Miura at ONE Fight Night 6 on Prime Video, Kelly has been vocal about her aspirations to compete against a fellow Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) black belt in the 115lbs weight class. She believes that facing someone of equal skill level and weight would provide the ultimate test of her grappling abilities.
In a post-fight interview, Kelly emphasized her reluctance to pursue matches against heavier competitors in the future. Despite being at a disadvantage against Miura, she showcased her resilience and strategic prowess, utilizing multiple techniques to secure a close decision victory.
With the utmost respect for her own safety, Kelly is determined to put her grappling skills to the test against opponents in her own weight class and school of martial arts. She understands that a significant win in such matchups could propel her closer to her ultimate goal of becoming the first-ever ONE women’s submission grappling world champion.
Fans and enthusiasts eagerly await the announcement of Kelly’s next match in ONE Championship, as she continues to capture attention with her impressive performances.
