Joaquin Buckley's Wholesome Reaction To UFC President Dana White Interrupting Interview After Insane Knockout

Joaquin Buckley had a wholesome reaction to Dana White interrupting his interview after he stole the show at UFC Fight Island 5.

'New Mansa' produced what many are deeming to be the greatest knockout in UFC history when he put Impa Kasanganay on the canvas with an insane spinning back kick in their middleweight bout on the preliminary fights.


The stunning maneuver garnered reaction from UFC stars Israel Adesanya, Daniel Cormier, Francis Ngannou, Justin Gaethje and Nate Diaz.

It was his first win in UFC at the second time at asking and secured him a huge $50,000 'Performance of the Night' bonus.

When interviewed by ESPN after his incredible highlight reel victory, UFC president White interrupted - which seriously overwhelmed Buckley.


"I always talk about when you're on a card, right?" White told the Missouri fighter, as per MMA Junkie.

"How do you stand out? My phone is blowing up. Kevin Iole, f***, 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."

Asked how he came to produce one of the most ridiculous counters ever seen inside the Octagon, Buckley stated that practice makes perfect.


He said: "It was just open. I seen that he still had my legs, I was still able to balance with him grabbing my foot, so I just spun and kicked. I aimed and I fire and it got the result we needed.

"I know I landed flush, I didn't know if I knocked him out though until he locked up and I said it was game over. I train it all the time, the only thing that was different was him holding my leg, but I practice it all the time."
