Impa Kasanganay Praises Joaquin Buckley's "Beautiful" KO

Even Impa Kasanganay is a fan of Joaquin Buckley's all-time great knockout kick.

Buckley earned a devestating second-round KO against Kasanganay at UFC Fight Island 5 on Saturday. Kasanganay caught Buckley's initial kick. While on one foot, Buckley spun and landed a jumping spinning back kick that got Kasanganay straight on the jaw.

"God bless you," Kasanganay told Buckley on Instagram after the fight. "It was an honor to step in the Octagon with you and to do what I love. Safe travels to you and your team. Beautiful shot. Way to fight. I will improve...The best is yet to come."
