You don't get the nickname "The Human Highlight Reel" for no reason. Raymond Daniels proved exactly why at Bellator Birmingham, when he ended Wilker Barros in the first round thanks to a devastating flurry at the end of the round. Daniels wasn't above showing off a little bit, as he literally waved at him before ending his night in spectacular fashion.
This was Daniels' first MMA win, as he actually made his name as a star in kickboxing, karate, and Tae Kwon Do. The No. 8 welterweight in the world before last night, Daniels is assuredly heading up the rankings after a dominant performance like that.
Conor McGregor never did this, did he? When's the last time you saw Daniel Cormier do a 360 before kicking someone in the head?

Some people might assume that UFC = MMA, but guys like Daniels are littered all over Bellator, showing that the organization has a bright future.
