Watch Joaquin Buckley Deliver One of the Greatest Knockouts in History
Joaquin Buckley has knockout of the year under his belt after stopping Impa Kasanganay during UFC Fight Island 5.
Buckley controlled the pace from the opening bell during Saturday's fight and landed damaging body kicks on Kasanganay in the second round. This prompted Kasanganay to counter a headbutt by holding Buckley's heel. Unfortunately for Kasanganay, this provided enough leverage for Buckley to jump off one foot and hit him in the head with a recoil.
Before Kasanganay hit the mat, it was clear that the impact had knocked him down. The creativity and sheer power of this knockout set the internet ablaze as MMA fans flooded the timeline with their reactions.
With this knockout, Buckley campaigned for the UFC's radar to improve to 1-1 for his time in the league.
