He is ranked #53 as Current Best MMA Middleweight in worldwide. Recently, he fought on 10th August 2020 where he delivers a huge blow to opponent Impa Kasanganay. UFC middleweight Joaquin Buckley delivered what many described as the most spectacular knockout in the promotion's history during his fight against Impa Kasanganay on Saturday night. In the second round of what had been an evenly fought contest, Kasanganay caught Buckley's foot during an attempted kick to the body. Buckley used Kasanganay's grip as leverage and delivered a 360-degree spinning kick to the jaw that knocked out his opponent.

Joaquin Buckley performed "the most unbelievable KO in UFC history" which stunned Dana White, Daniel Cormier, Israel Adesanya, and Justin Gaethje on Fight Island. He scored one of the most impressive knockouts in UFC history as he floored Impa Kasanganay with a spinning heel kick. The organization returned to Abu Dhabi AKA "Fight Island" in the hope of entertaining fans and Buckley has delivered a KO many believed to be one of the best ever. President Dana White was later heard telling Buckley many people urged him to hand him "all the bonuses". "Everybody's saying 'just give him $200,000 tonight. Give him every bonus!' Nobody's ever seen anything like that. [UFC matchmaker] Sean Shelby texted me and said, 'Write him a check right now for 50 grand and go give it to him before he gets out of the octagon'". He was locked in a back and forth contest and found his ankle locked and with his back to Kasanganay. Using the incredible technique and tae-kwon-do skills, "New Mansa" unleashed a stunning spinning kick which spans Kasanganay's eyes round in his head. He said: "The boss just told me that he wants to give me all of the bonuses, so I'm welcome to it, I want all of it. To be honest with you, it's surreal; a cloud came over my head when he was talking to me, so I couldn't hear anything, but once that money came in, once he talked about that, then it cleared up a little bit. But i's awesome, it's surreal that Dana White came over and talked to me.
