Joaquin Buckley Still Working At Walgreens Despite Big UFC KOs

Joaquin Buckley is quickly becoming the stuff of legend in the UFC after highlight reel knockout finishes of Impa Kasanganay and Jordan Wright.

Even though Buckley’s star is growing in the UFC, one thing the fighter refuses to do is to give up his job at Walgreens.

"The thing is ... besides UFC -- and they're giving me these big checks -- I still don't have a business of my own. So, I need to just keep working," Buckley says to TMZ Sports. “So, I'm gonna just keep holding down a job."

Buckley, outside of working at Walgreens, is also in the midst of developing his own clothing line, which the fighter has called “Solid Foundation.”

The opponent that Buckley would like to face next in the Octagon is James Krause.

"He's just out here spreading lies and spreading rumors [about me] ... it's getting frustrating and for him to think he can just keep talking his stuff without any type of punishment or any type of consequences, it's ridiculous! I'm gonna see him regardless if the UFC gives me the fight or not,” says Buckley.
