Danielle Kelly will have her stiffest test to date when she defends the ONE Atomweight Submission Grappling World Championship on Friday, August 2.

At ONE Fight Night 24, Mayssa Bastos will step into Lumpinee Boxing Stadium to try and claim ONE Championship gold.

The multiple-time IBJJF World Champion made her organizational debut earlier in 2024 with a win over Kanae Yamada. The controlling victory was a strong introduction for Bastos on the global stage and netted her this opportunity.

Kelly has been the darling of the jiu-jitsu scene and became one of its top stars when she arrived in ONE.

The American has won all four contests on the global stage, including the inaugural title win against longtime rival Jessa Khan.

The emotional victory was a culmination for the American, who silenced her sharpest critics and took the gold back home to Philadelphia.

Kelly’s aggressiveness has paid off under ONE’s global submission grappling rule set that incentivizes athletes to go for the finish. Against Bastos, Kelly will have to be on point against one of the division’s most technically sound competitors.

As the summer heat keeps rising, Kelly and Bastos will keep the action hot inside the ring. The stellar submission grappling encounter is another showcase for the sport, and both women will try to carry its banner on what will no doubt become another fun night in Bangkok.

ONE Fight Night 24 airs live and free on Prime Video on Friday, August 2. The action begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
