Joaquin Buckley up for KO of the Year with spinning back kick at UFC Fight Night

Sunday 11th October 2020 01:00

Jack Hermansson Defeated By Jared Connonier

Joaquin Buckley ended his fight against Impa Kasengay with a spinning back kick for the ages.

Buckley's got a mix of first round wins, decision victories and somewhere in-between. He's built huge, hits like a monster and comes from a training mentality of "drill to kill".

Buckley's got dynamite in his hands, and there's some glimpses of Anthony Johnson in there, and you could be forgiven for being not expecting such wicked technique and quick athleticism from someone so big.

It ended a very back and forth content where Kasenganay and Buckley went through the motions, both landing shots and showing variety in their execution during their matchup.

Coming off a third-round KO loss to Kevin Holland in his UFC debut, Buckley's got one back in the win column in spectacular fashion.

A welcome addition to the UFC this finish is already being mention amongst the ranks of Antony Pettis's "Showtime Kick" against Benson Henderson back in the WEC, and more recently Urijah Hall's The Ultimate Fighter's spinning heel hook, as well as Edson Barboza's legendary UFC finish over Terry Etim back in 2012.
