Check out how Joaquin Buckley blasts Andre Fialho with head kick knockout at UFC Fight Night 224

Joaquin Buckley’s return to welterweight was emphatic.

Joaquin Buckley (16-6 MMA, 6-4 UFC) knocked out Andre Fialho (16-7 MMA, 2-4 UFC) with a left high kick in their 170-pound main card bout at UFC Fight Night 224 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Fialho was able to catch Joaquin Buckley multiple times in Round 1, but Buckley kept lunging forward with combinations. “New Mansa” landed two brief explosive takedowns in Round 1, but Fialho popped right back up.

Buckley continued to throw with bad intentions in Round 2 until he caught Fialho with a big head kick knockout which froze him. He followed it up with another shot, but it wasn’t necessary as he scored the stoppage in the 4:15 mark (via Twitter):

Buckley returned to 170 pounds for the first time in the octagon and the first time since April 2018. Five of his past six wins have come by knockout.
