I wasn't at all shocked, Daley was my pick in that fight. I saw his EliteXC and Strikeforce fights as well as many of his Cage Rage fights, and I knew he had better hands than most WW even in the UFC.
Only a lucky punch or a strong grappler is going to stop him, and if he improves his grappling, he could well be a future champ.
His helmet was stifling, it narrowed his vision. And he must see far. His shield was heavy. It threw him off balance. And his target is far away.
