Only weeks after his win over Impa Kasanganay earned millions of views online, Joaquin Buckley will return on November 21st at UFC 255 against Jordan Wright.
The fight, which is expected to happen in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, was first reported by Brett Okamoto of ESPN.
Buckley won on last weekend’s UFC card, knocking out Kasanganay in the second round with a spinning back kick that went viral online. The fight was his first win in the UFC, bouncing back from a loss in August to Kevin Holland.
Wright won his UFC debut in August over Ike Villanueva, with a doctor’s stoppage in the second minute sounding the end of the fight. Wright is undefeated with 11 fights as a pro.
