Joaquin Buckley Gets Another Big Knockout At UFC 255

While his finish of Wright wasn't quite as eye-catching, the rest of the UFC middleweight division will certainly be wary of Buckley's power.

Fresh of his victory at UFC Fight Island 5, where he inflicted one of the most incredible Knockouts, which may even go down as one of the best in the history let alone year, Joaquin Buckley has pulled out another whack, this time at the November's Pay-per-View event UFC 255.

As a result, Buckley earned his second UFC win in a row after suffering a knockout defeat to Kevin Holland in his promotional debut earlier this year.

Buckley made headlines all over the world last month after his stupendous spinning kick knocked out Impa Kasanganay at UFC Fight Night 179.

Once the second round began, it looked like a matter of how long Wright could last. The odds were in Buckley's favour but Wright was undefeated at 11-0. Buckley shot into the clinch early, and Wright did a good job of smothering his smaller foe.

Heaped with pressure following his stunning, jumping, spinning back-kick KO of Kasanganay in October, middleweight powerhouse, Buckley continued to streak with a massive second-round stoppage of the unsafe Wright.

Buckley started off fast in the opening seconds of round two, and he ended up landing a huge left hook-right hook combination that dropped Wright and finished the fight.

"When I hurt him, the referee can't save him and y'all know who I'm talking about".
