Back in March 2022, After a bonus-winning debut at ONE X, Danielle Kelly has finally been invited back to the ONE Circle for her next grappling fight. She’ll be battling Mariia Molchanova, a multiple-time sambo world champion from Russia. The match begins November 18th, as part of ONE on Prime Video 4.

If this Danielle Kelly vs. Mariia Molchanova seems like a familiar matchup, that’s very much what ONE is going for. 

Chatri Sityodtong, ONE Championship CEO, explained that he plans to add fule to the fire between the sambo and jiu-jitsu stylists rivalry. True to his plans, in the past two months, we’ve seen ADCC champion Kade Ruotolo heel hook his way to a ONE submission grappling world title despite the efforts of four-time world sambo champion Uali Kurzhev. Additionally, a previously little-known jiu-jitsu black belt Rodirgo Marello broke the record for fastest ONE Circle with an ankle lock victory over Ruslan Bagdasarian, another Russian sambo champ. 

The cycle continues with the highly decorated jiu-jitsu black belt, Danielle Kelly, facing off with an equally lauded sambo star in Molchanova in no other than the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Kelly, who’s strongly promoted the benefits of training wrestling alongside classical Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ), has made no effort to conceal her hopes to become ONE’s first female contender for a submission grappling belt. To date ONE has not officially announced a women’s atomweight belt for submission grappling, but Kelly will undoubtedly be looking for a full on battle against the sambo champ to silence any naysayers about her right to that title shot.

Don’t miss this sure to be epic showdown, streaming LIVE exclusively on Amazon Prime Video, at 8 PM EST on Friday, November 18th.
