UFC strawweight champion Rose Namajunas will compete in a grappling bout on December 30 when she battles Danielle Kelly at the CFFC: Fury 3 event.
Namajunas (11-4-0) has had an incredibly successful year after knocking out Weili Zhang in April to capture the UFC strawweight championship and successfully defending it in the rematch last month. The 29-year-old now looks to end the year on an even bigger high by taking out a standout BJJ star at her own game.
This isn’t the first time that Danielle Kelly has welcomed a UFC star into her own world. She owns notable submission wins over Cynthia Calvillo and Roxanne Modafferi in BJJ competition. The black belt now looks to add the biggest name of all by taking out one of the UFC’s most beloved stars in Rose Namajunas.
CFFC: Fury 3 takes place on December 30, 2021, from the 2300 Arena in Phildelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. The event will be aired live on UFC Fight Pass.
