  • This scenario reminded me of Holly knocking Ronda Rousey. Yikes!😬

  • 1:36 Tyson Fury’s twin brother 👽

  • nigga 10 years from now we gonna be seeing UFC with hollywood style fights playing in front of us xD they gonna be like. "watch out for those buckley kicks" he'll spin on ya. Lmao

  • He deserves all the praise he gets, the kick was insane 💯

  • Is it true that he got kicked out of every gym in st louis?

  • Krause next...

  • 00:17 Damn

  • Alzheimer's in years to come.

  • Y'all see his knocked out this passed weekend 😁

  • No spellcheck LOL. Bottom line is when you find a guy that moves as slow as his opponent was you can connect with fancy moves but if you’re fighting against a real good fighter and I’ve been in the business for 32 years you have to start using your head. Let’s break it down... The opponent grabbed a foot but did nothing, that is a sign of inexperience and nothing special about the other fighter that received the kick in the face. When The cake was delivered to the opponents face watch the video closely was he watching all the time as the kid connected to his face no he was not that shows our alliance of luck not precision. Ask people in the casinos how long luck lasts. If you cannot see a spin cake in the entire segment of its delivery that tells me two things as a trainer you are not stretching enough - before during and after that’s right before during and after your training and secondly you’re not dedicated enough by following through with watching what happens. He just walks away which is retarded. You never turn your back on your opponent because I know some guys that can take a kick probably five times harder than that and still come at you. They’ve got a neck and head and shoulders like a bloody pitbull. And some of those guys don’t even look like a fighter yeah they can crack coconuts with their skull and walk away with a smile. And there might be a third point which is you never underestimate your opponent… You respect your opponent and when he turned his back and walked away and put his hands in the air, that is a cocky. selfish retarded celebration where in the future your bad habit might prove you to be unworthy of a Title or any kind of win for that matter.

  • Lol

  • Yeah it would’ve been impressive if the guy was in a fight and a guy that moves slow. The guy he was fighting relies mostly on muscle movement he’s not a true blue slayer Stephen so he’s got to Marshall lives like a show in Tampa has come on man don’t get a big head over a fucking dumb kick. That’s when you get your ass whipped when you overestimate other fighters that everybody is a slow is the guy you were fighting


  • This dude fought again a month after that and KOing his opponent again at UFC 255

  • I mean maybe. If he loses his next 3 fights no one will have speak of him again.

  • pijit.balik dong

  • Classical ko

  • Mark of Cain. A brutal criminality legalized inside the octagon.

  • Did the other dude die...??

  • I love his demeanor. Characteristics of a GOOD man. God bless wish you success. 😎👍

  • Anyone else notice how hard he was swinging on his sparring partners... I might owe James a sorry....

  • Great Prospect I Hope He Prosper Big

  • Nice kick...but that could be it

  • Imagine what the other guy feels like

  • im 19 is it too late to start training

  • No doubt , it was a 50$k finish of the night knock out

  • I don't feel bad for him. Why would you hold on to his leg and not do anything? Sell himself up for failure lol

  • Same for Pettis. What happened to that guy?

  • wonder if the UFC payed Joshua for that trump quote lmao

  • We live in a very weird world. A person can become a celebrity and change their life because they kick someone in the face a certain way.


  • He never saw it coming.

  • Joaquin vs Khamzat perfect fight to make

  • I wonder how that guy who got KOed feels, whatever his name is

  • It's just one kick, homie. Good luck with all the other fights

  • Who told him the name of that kick after he did it ...

  • I mean not really. He was already signed with a bright looking future but oka boomer

  • What a kick! The other guys face and eyes were like 🤪

  • Wow, amazing ko

  • You right, it did but not for the better. Now we know hes a truly shitty person. Ask his ex coach about it.

  • Keep it modest man and don’t let the ego take over and remember to protect your groin at all time. However, it is great to see a big man can kick so well.

  • Taekwondo kick 🥋🥋🥋🥋🥋🥋

  • That fall was pure gaming like.

  • I really got a kick out of these comments 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣😂🤣🤣

  • Flawless victory

  • Wow 😳 what a kick

  • It shouldn't be allowed.

  • heros, like power rangers, like ultralman..

  • Awesome.

  • So in summary dude looks like a pro wrestler, kicks like jet lee, fights like an mma fighter. Alright alright.. im down!

  • Used to be that MMA guys would say that a front kick, or a spinning heel kick were "too fancy" for real life fighting. Now look where people are at, they just gonna keep getting better. Maybe that old timey martial art stuff isn't as crazy as so many people thought (when you put in the work).

  • Let's go champ 🔥✊

  • That was a nicely timed back kick

  • We see that he did not strike with all his might

  • Perfect 10 all the way hands down I had to rewind this like 10 times I got to go play this some more I got to see this again

  • This dude looks like Nick Cannon older brother

  • I cant help wonder if the guy that received the kick can still speak properly..God Bless

  • Mike Tyson sparred hard but with CONTROL and SMARTS. Always and there is a reason and logic sparring like you in a real fight. But at least Mike gave them a heads up. I don't like soft sparring i think its a waist of time. It makes no sense to practice at 40% when the fight is going to be 100%. Thats like studying 40% of a test then when its time for 100% you aint correctly prepared. What you expect to face in the ring you face during training. Fireman, soldiers, Paramedics ect train to deal with situations with 100% seriousness, if they don't and go easy and train with 30% when it comes to it they fold. Obviously you don't beat your man down in training but you don't go easy. If you are getting K.O in the Gym from sparring or getting hit to much in the head because man is going 100% then you shouldn't be fighting and continue to work on defence skills.

  • Who wrote his lines

  • 0:06 The left Caster just missed the legendary moment in FFA history

  • Since when did Nick Cannon start MMA? Haha jokes aside, that was a nasty kick!

  • looks pretty damn hard to me

  • Nick Cannon is looking yoked! And he wildin out in the UFC😆

  • Ninja.!

  • If this kick actually changed his life, how come he still works at Walgreens.. 🤔

  • reminds me of uriah hall. talented and technical but emotional and uncontrolled.

  • I would guess one of these a generation will stand the test of time such as this,,,Masvidal ect ect I will never forget Marvin Eastman getting cut looking like he got hit by an axe

  • UFC will promote anything because their trying do hard to find a new Conor for ppv Like making khamzat fight Leon. Thier is a huge gap between 15 and 3

  • 0:05

  • Does that kick exist in UFC 4 or we have to wait for UFC 5 to add it.

  • All of u guys talking about him getting pushed too soon because of the kick. The ufc gave him to Kevin Holland before and took it to him before the finish the kid is a legit talent. Other fighters have said it best. There’s no pushing someone too soon. He’s in the best organization he’s gonna fight the best guys.

  • The one on the left side ,black shirt missed the live shot.

  • This is Taekwon-do kicking

  • Yes baby that's what I'm talking about.

  • Black shirt commentator totaly missed the moment 😅😆😆

  • Amazing athletics and focus to pull that kick off. Hope the other guy is ok as well.

  • He's got a hot ticket

  • He got lucky with that kick don’t mean he the best of the best I’m not a hater okay 😄✌🏽

  • What was the date of that fight?


  • Video ruined talkin about trump Anyways great kick ... keep up the hard work

  • Superb dexterity. My snappiest salute to this warrior

  • You've got to risk it for a biscuit.

  • Hey Jon Jones.. You want to prove yourself?? "FIGHT BUCKLEY!!" 😁😁✌🏻

  • Amazing kicks

  • This dude has been banned from every gym in his state for general assholery and for trying to fight lower weight classes in full contact anddd got kod his next fight after this kick happened but “WoAh ThAt KiCk”🤷‍♂️

  • I hope everyone remembers how big a trump supporter , Dana white is, boycott the UFC

  • the opponent was jerk...what he was wondering while holding that leg for seconds..battle is won by brains not by muscles...


  • That kicked changed TWO lives but not in the same way

  • Lol he got paid 20k for saying Donald trump

  • That kick was different

  • If he would have died you would have committed murder and that is not good

  • I know a great kick when I see one, ok 👌🏻. Nobody knows a better kick than me! Congrats on the compliment!

  • Ok dont get so excited... Let him in ufc get fight with real dog then we will discussed... Goodnight

  • Lmao this man will never sniff a belt

  • Looool Dan Hardy missed it, u can see him looking in a different direction xD

  • this dude is a ninja!!!!!!! hell yea!!!!!!!


  • Great he loves Trump too and doesn't fall for the negative news..
