Joaquin Buckley’s rise to viral stardom after his instant-classic spinning head kick KO of Impa Kasanganay continues today as Kanye West has just dropped a new beat ‘Nah Nah Nah’ on Twitter that features a looping video of the highlight-reel finish.
“THE WHOLE TEAM IS SO ENERGIZED THAT I HAD TO RELEASE THEME MUSIC NAH NAH NAH,” West wrote alongside the video.

So far the video has been viewed over 2 million times in less than a day. Impressive – yet it pales in comparison to the staggering 12.9 million views that the original clip of the KO has garnered over on the UFC’s own Twitter account since Saturday night.
Despite West’s enthusiasm the actual track itself has been met with a decidely underwhelming reception from fans, but no doubt Buckley will just be thrilled to have caught the attention of one of the biggest stars in hip-hop, while continuing to ride the wave of momentum from total obscurity just a few days ago to being the man of the moment on social media.
No doubt the viral buzz will die off soon enough, but Buckley can rest assured that his legendary kick will continue to be shown on UFC highlight reels forever more.
