Michelle Nicolini is one of the greatest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners to ever don the gi. She has eight Mundials World Titles in the black belt division, and she is also a four-time No-Gi BJJ World Champion, and an ADCC gold medalist.

She plans to use her submission prowess in the ring against Lee in KL, and she has submitted her former Evolve teammate in competition before, so their strawweight match-up should be very intriguing.

Daichi Abe

Japanese athlete Daichi Abe won the Pancrase Welterweight World Championship in his homeland thanks to his powerful striking.

He hopes to move closer to ONE gold when he takes on one of the lightweight division’s most established names in Ev “E.T.” Ting.
