Danielle Kelly stands by her comments about Angela Lee

Danielle Kelly stands by her “Legit Grapplers” comment made to Angela Lee.

The jiu-jitsu phenomenon attended the ONE and Amazon Prime Video joint press conference at the Novo in Los Angeles in July. On stage, Danielle Kelly threw some shade to Lee when asked about a possible fight with the world atomicweight champion.

Kelly replied:

“I’m a jiu-jitsu person, so I focused on real grapplers. But if you want to give me the match [with Angela Lee]I’ll take it immediately.”

Check out the summary below:

After the event ended, Lee was offended and not happy with her comments. Tom Taylor out SCMP MMA followed Danielle and asked if it was her intention to offend her.

The Philadelphia native replied:

“Not really. But the fact that she was offended by it and everyone else did, I’m just going to hold onto that. So if the shoe fits, you know, that’s on you. I don’t take back what I said .”

Kelly has become a feat since entering the ONE Championship last February. She brings a high level of grappling to the roster and is an exciting woman to watch.

Within a year, the Silver Fox rep was bringing the heat up against MMA icons Mei Yamaguchi and Carla Esparza, so it was only natural for Kelly to target MMA’s poster boy: Angela Lee. While it’s unlikely they’ll ever meet in a submission grappling match, fans are hoping they’ll settle their differences in MMA.
