Viral sensation Joaquin Buckley added to his trailer with another wild knockout, this time of Jordan Wright at UFC 255
Buckley rose to fame last month with a knockout contender of the year on Impa Kasanganay – a spectacular kick back on Fight Island
While his Wright finish wasn’t quite as eye-catching, the rest of the UFC middleweight division will certainly be wary of Buckley’s power.
The fight was almost stopped at the end of the first round as Buckley let his opponent down with heavy hands
With referee Herb Dean keeping a close watch, the bell rang to end the round, although Wright probably needed more than a minute to come to his senses after a few big hits
Once the second round started it looked like how long Wright could last
In the end, it took Buckley 18 seconds for another big left hand to land, sending Wright crashing to the mat and ending the fight.
After the fight Buckley, without saying the name, requested a fight with veteran weltwerweight James Krause
“There are other guys out there that I want to fight, who say this nonsense and I really want to give it to him,” Buckley told Joe Rogan
“When I hurt him, the referee can’t save him and you all know who I’m talking about
“Just check my name on Youtube, he’s the only person talking, I don’t have to give his name, just do your homework and you’ll know who I’m talking about”
And just in case you need a reminder of the knockout that put him on the map, here it is:
