When the knockout still did not appear in the UFC Fight Island 5, Joaquin buckley came with the most shocking of the year. Now the question is whether Impa Kasanganay received the one of the decade. Clearly there was an impressive moment on Abu Dhabi’s “island of struggle”, when the American made a devastating turn in the air and hit his rival’s face squarely. Thus, the night got better than ever and the networks exploded.
When in the first round they had both hit each other very well, some hints began to appear of what would follow. The two gave a very good image with their fists and physical power, although Joaquin was the one who smiled at the end. Buckley launched a kick, the opponent held it back with his hand, but he never imagined what came next. The American made a 180 ° in the air and hit him squarely in his face, sending him to sleep and causing a furor on virtual platforms.
“When he grabbed my leg, I saw his free face and I didn’t hesitate. I directly threw the spin and hit her face. I am really very happy. He was a tough opponent, but from the first second I went looking for this and finally I ended up getting it. I made it clear what I’m in the UFC for and what I want. I will look forward to the next call, “was what he began by saying. Joaquin buckley, who will surely keep the $ 50,000.
