Known for his flashiness and aggressive style, Raymond Daniels has proven himself to be one of the best in modern=day kickboxing. Daniels began training Kenpo in 1985, earning his black belt in 1992. Daniels holds sixth-degree black belts in American Kenpo and Shotokan, as well as a fifth-degree black belt in Taekwondo.
Daniels had a very successful run in points fighting (sport karate and kickboxing). He won the National Blackbelt League World Championship every year from 2003-2010, NASKA World titles in 2002 and 2004, the Irish Open Grand Championship in 2005-2012 and 2014, and the W.A.K.O. World Championship in 2015. Daniels helped lead the LA Stars to a championship in Chuck Norris’ World Combat League, including a win over current UFC star Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson.
Daniels debuted in GLORY in 2013 at GLORY 11, defeating Brian Foster. At GLORY 19, Daniels competed in a welterweight contender tournament, defeating Jonathan Oliveira in the semifinals but losing to Nieky Holzken in the final. At GLORY 23, he lost to Holzken again — this time with the then-vacant GLORY Welterweight Title on the line.
Daniels then jumped ship to Bellator Kickboxing, where he is currently 6-0 and the welterweight champion, winning the title at Bellator Kickboxing 7.
