Highlights! Joaquin Buckley does it again, ends Jordan Wright with vicious KO at UFC 255

Joaquin Buckley has done it again.

After turning in one of the best knockouts in UFC history last month, the rising middleweight contender ended previously undefeated Jordan Wright via second-round knockout earlier tonight (Sat., Nov. 21, 2020) at UFC 255 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada,

After nearly taking Wright out in the first round Buckley kept busy with his hands in the second. Wright tried to keep his distance and use his size, but “New Mansa” powered his way inside and landed a monstrous combination along the cage. Wright dropped to the canvas and the referee stepped in.

With this performance, Buckley follows up his legendary knockout finish with another impressive stoppage. Despite losing his Octagon debut to Kevin Holland back in August, Buckley remains one of the biggest breakout stars of 2020.
