Joaquin Buckley sends Kevin Holland a message after TKO win over Vicente Luque at UFC Atlantic City

Joaquin Buckley’s decision to return to welterweight has paid off in full as the surging contender has strung together three wins.

He faced Vicente Luque in the co-main event of UFC Atlantic City on March 30, where ‘New Mansa’ secured a second-round TKO victory. The win will likely see him enter the welterweight rankings at no.11, the spot currently occupied by Luque.

Joaquin Buckley’s former opponent and rival, Kevin Holland, currently sits at no. 14 in the division. Given that he had called out ‘Trailblazer’ for a rematch in the past, the 29-year-old was asked if he would entertain a clash with Holland, during the post-fight press conference.

The welterweight contender responded by saying this:

“I don’t want it back anymore. He lost to [Michael Venom Page]. Damn, poor child, you messed up the money. Like I said, I was hunting him down the whole time and I was trying to get the opportunity, he didn’t want to give it to me. So now we’re just looking forward.”
