Kanye West uses Joaquin Buckley's UFC knockout highlight to release new track
Just when you thought Joaquin Buckley’s week couldn’t get any better, one of the most notable names in music has used his viral knockout in his latest video.
Kanye West released a new track on social media, where he played Buckley’s incredible spinning-back-kick knockout of Imapa Kasanganay at UFC on ESPN+ 37 on a loop in his video.
In the song, West discusses his presidential candidacy and even throws in a “Star Wars” scene from the memorable Obi-Wan Kenobi vs. Anakin Skywalker duel in “Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.”
“THE WHOLE TEAM IS SO ENERGIZED THAT I HAD TO RELEASE THEME MUSIC NAH NAH NAH.”
Buckley’s knockout, which was dubbed as “the most unbelievable KO” in the history of the promotion by the UFC, caught the entire world by storm and, obviously, earned him a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus.
