The clash between Raymond Daniels and Peter Stanonik was brought to a premature end on Friday night as two successive groin strikes resulted in a hospital visit. Daniels, who is a world-class kickboxer, was guilty of committing the illegal strikes at Bellator 245 and was extremely apologetic after the incident, which Conor McGregor‘s coach, John Kavanagh, called the ‘most spectacular’ he had ever seen. Bellator Raymond Daniels caught Peter Stanonik in the groin Bellator Stanonik punched the canvas in pure agony and could be heard crying in pain The 40-year-old landed an accidental groin strike to Stanonik at the start of the second round which required a brief pause in the action. After the referee allowed the welterweights to continue, the 32-year-old American was on the deck and unable to fight on just moments later after a spin kick caught him clean in the groin area. Stanonik was left writhing in agony, punching the canvas and could heard crying out in pain as Daniels offered his sincere apologies. “I hope my opponent Peter is okay, obviously I never mean to hit anybody as far as low blows. Whenever I knock someone out or down, I hope they are okay so I definitely hope he is okay,” he said. Bellator The 40-year-old was clearly upset after leaving the welterweight in agony “Definitely not how I wanted the fight to go. I had an entirely different ending in my end. “It’s the first time that’s ever really happened. First time I thought it was a body shot, but my foot is pretty big and covers a lot of ground. “The second time I definitely hit him clean. He kicked me, knocked me off balance and made me miss a little bit. “2020 has been that kind of year, crazy year. I don’t normally miss my spin kicks like that.” Daniels admitted he knew the fight was finished when the second spinning back kick connected with Stanonik. He explained: “The second one hit very hard and the spin kick is the hardest technique you can throw in all combat sports. “My spin kick is kind of like my bazooka, grenade launcher, whatever you want to call it. “It can end things in an instant way wherever it lands. Unfortunately it landed in the groin vicinity. “I hope he’s okay, I never want to hurt my opponent where they have to be carried off.”,
