With his point fighting background, he really gives the sport a different look How Raymond fights is NOT the best or most efficient way to fight kickboxing rules, anyone in the sport knows that He can compete purely because he is that good with his legs and has been doing it for probably close to 30 years. You can't comprehend how hard it is to compete and keep at bay the top MT/Kickboxers fighting the way Raymond does. Raymond's hands have improved a bit but they will never be more than a distraction, purely because of all of those years of point fighting. I will never say Raymond is the best, it is nice he has gotten some recognition late in his career with the Bellator belt. If we get another couple of years of entertainment from him, i'll be happy It would be like someone competing with the top tennis players today using only a slice backhand.
