A giddy Joaquin Buckley cannot contain himself in this rare encounter with UFC President Dana White.
Buckley was doing an interview with ESPN when White approached the middleweight to congratulate him. If you somehow missed it, Buckley secured one of the greatest knockouts in UFC history with a jumping spinning back kick off one foot against Impa Kasanganay at UFC Fight Island 5.
“Aw, naw,” Buckley said in the video below. “You’re gonna make me cry.”
“I always talk about when you’re on a card, right?” White praised (h/t MMA Junkie). “How do you stand out? My phone is blowing up. Kevin Iole (expletive) 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.”
