New, comments

Raymond Daniels returned to MMA with an amazing knockout over Wilker Barros in the first round of their welterweight showdown at Bellator Birmingham on Saturday.

(Skip to 4:30 for knockout)

The Bellator Kickboxing welterweight champion unleashed a spectacular array of techniques over the four minutes and change. Just before the final blow, he buckled Barros to the canvas with a deadly spinning back kick to the body.

When Barros stood back up, “The Human Highlight Reel” spun two times before planting a lethal right hand that ended the MMA debutant’s night in the final seconds of the first.

Considered one of the greatest strikers of all time, Daniels improved his MMA record to 1-1 with the promotional debut win. His last MMA bout came in 2008, a submission loss to Jeremiah Metcalf.
