Buckley devastates Impa Kasanganay with spinning back kick

The middleweight took on Impa Kasanganay, who until Saturday, had never lost. But, as you can see by watching the clip below, Kasanganay incurred his first defeat via one of the greatest knockouts in UFC history.

White tells Buckley his “phone is blowing up”

After Buckley’s unforgettable win, UFC President Dana White went backstage to tell the fighter his phone was “blowing up”, on account of his win (quote via MMA Junkie).

“I always talk about when you’re on a card, right?” White said to Buckley. “How do you stand out? My phone is blowing up.

Kevin Iole (expletive) hit me up for a quote because he’s already doing a story on you. Everybody is saying, ‘Just give him $200,000 tonight.

Give him every bonus.’ Nobody has ever seen anything like that. Sean Shelby texted me and said, ‘Write him a check right now for $50,000 and go give it to him before he gets out of (there). Incredible.”

Yes, if you’re wondering, Buckley (of course) picked up one of the $50,000 Performance of the Night bonuses. With the win the 26 year-old now holds a record of 11-3.
