    I'm pretty sure everyone is saying that he would lose to any legit top 10 fighter.

    He's a flashy-fun guy to watch, nobodies hyping him as the next coming of Ernesto Hoost but I'll always tune in to see him.

    He's the 2nd best point fighter I've ever seen.....doesn't always translate over of course but you can't take that away from him. It's reason enough to get hyped for his fights.

    He's a fun fighter, but it's good his hype train got derailed. I remember a couple of years ago we had Valiss and some others nuthugging the shit out of the guy, pretending he was the Michael Jordan of the striking world (gheghe, Pem).

    Getting a knock out over Ambang isn't exactly something to be excited about. Not to mention, ofcourse nobody who's been following Glory for atleast the last 6 months is going to forget Valtellini completely owning Daniels. It was only back in December. Where did you hear about Raymond Daniels getting attention? It's probably just casual viewers who don't know his short fight history in Glory.

    Flashy knockouts will get you hype. Doesn't matter who the opponent is.

    Im assuming you are talking about the pointfighting style of kickboxing, so im just intrested to know, who is the best you have seen?

    He is the best i've seen live, saw him in Ireland in march and he is sick, so much controll in his legs for a guy his size!

    I know there are better pure point fighters out there(not many) just wondering who it is that you are talking about :)

    Yes I was talking about actual point fighting, not what MMA fans say to bash fighters they don't like :icon_chee

    The best IMO is Pedro Xavier. Only got to see a few of his fights live but that guy has speed like I've never seen. Raymond is also amazing to watch live, and I've been blessed to see him a bunch of times, always impressive.

    Okey, he is from before my time, only got into kickboxing 4 years ago and only found out about pointfighting 2 years ago, dont really focus on it myself, but watching those guys is a really good fun.

    The size of Raymond is one of the things that make him so impressive to me, often you see the bigger guys crutch on being longer when fighting in open weight, but he is longer AND faster + has sick control over his kicks.

    What's wrong with point fighting? I think it's loads of fun.

    Pedro "The Axeman" Xavier was really great and flashy to c.

    It baffles me, reading WAKO results and records, of how many successful point fighters were from Cape Verde like Xavier is, such a small country/island in Africa.

    I first seen Daniels back in the WKL I think it was? Chuck Norris' fight league. He was a beast back then too.

    He has a overly flashy game with weaknesses at close range, and a lack of lowkick and knee experience. But he can be fun to watch, and will draw audience.
    And it was a beautiful KO, give him that!
