Raymond Daniels detailed his incredible knockout from Bellator Birmingham in a post-fight interview with MMAJunkie:

“I knew he was back against the cage. He had done a good job of trying to back away from my kicks. But because he was up against the cage, I knew he couldn’t back up anymore. When I threw the 720, I was going to actually throw the kick, but he pushed against the cage, and it gave him more space, so I decided not to kick and come down with the right hand. And that happened all in that split second, in my mind.”

Not to be outdone was Fabian Edwards, who rocked his opponent with an up-kick while on the ground and then proceeded to put him away with some heavy shots.
