The verbal back-and-forth between Danielle Kelly and Angela Lee ignites. At war with each other over who is the better grappler, Kelly isn’t afraid to meet the World Atomic Weight Champion on the canvas to settle the score once and for all.
Angela Lee has since responded that she would like to meet her in an MMA fight instead. Tom Taylor poured even more fuel on the fire SCMP MMA, Danielle asked if she felt Lee was dodging her request by suggesting MMA instead.
The Silver Fox Grappler said unabashedly:
“It wouldn’t surprise me. Right now I haven’t had an MMA fight so I was coming up with really tough girls and girls that were in big, big divisions that submitted world champions, you know, she had a comment that she trains with world champions, but it usually doesn’t mean anything. People are subdued or beaten every day. I get spanked by better girls. I’m more scared of them than of her.”
Danielle Kelly has been grappling for many years, training and competing with jiu-jitsu black belts from around the world. She gave Japanese icon Mei Yamaguchi a hard time in their submission grappling match at ONE X last March.
The MMA warrior found no alternative but to defend Kelly’s relentless on-screen aggression. Maybe Angela Lee doesn’t want to be in a similar situation. Losing to Kelly could set off a domino effect that the world champion may not be prepared for.
Inspired by Lee, Danielle Kelly wants to pull a twister lock in one of her future matches
Ironically, Danielle Kelly always had respect for Angela Lee as an MMA fighter and as a mother champion. Inspired by Lee’s attempt at a twisterlock against Thai superstar Stamp Fairtex at ONE X, Kelly vowed to try the same maneuver in one of her future matches.
she said MMA mania:
“I’ve been working on it. It’s quite satisfying because you’re basically crushing someone’s spine. I think it’s even cooler if you can do it with MMA because it’s probably easier because you can hit them and then they’re more worried about the punches in their face than if you just hit the twister. That is my goal. I hope I landed a Twister in one of my matches. Hopefully, knock wood, I can’t get it done to me.
Hypothetically speaking, what could be more impressive than Danielle Kelly performing one of the toughest and rarest maneuvers on Angela Lee herself in MMA?
