The timing is interesting because Nieky Holzken faces Regian Eersel for the inaugural ONE lightweight kickboxing title on Friday. The former holds two wins over Daniels.
Holzken beat the American in the final of the Glory welterweight tournament and then beat him again in a subsequent title defence. However Daniels would go on to win eight fights out of eight for Bellator.
The presence of one of America’s top kickboxers in Singapore is sure to spark rumours on the stand up fighting circuit. Could Daniels be the next star to sign on for the ONE Super Series?
Also at the press conference Chatri Sityodtong announced that the winner of the ONE Featherweight Kickboxing Grand Prix would receive $1 million USD.
