Now, below you can watch Buckley’s overwhelmed reaction as Dana White congratulated him backstage for delivering his stunning victory, which some are already claiming to be the best KO in UFC history.
“I always talk about when you’re on a card, right?” White told Buckley. “How do you stand out? My phone is blowing up. Kevin Iole (expletive) hit me up for a quote because he’s already doing a story on you. Everybody is saying, ‘Just give him $200,000 tonight. Give him every bonus.’ Nobody has ever seen anything like that. Sean Shelby texted me and said, ‘Write him a check right now for $50,000 and go give it to him before he gets out of (there). Incredible.”
