UFC middleweight Impa Kasanganay reacted after falling victim to one of the greatest knockouts in UFC history by Joaquin Buckley.

Kasanganay is a top prospect from Dana White’s Contender Series and after beating Maki Pitolo in his UFC debut this summer in Vegas, much was expected of him coming into this bout against Buckley. With Buckley coming off of a brutal KO loss to Kevin Holland in his own UFC debut, the oddsmakers pegged Kasanganay as a huge betting favorite here.

However, we all know that anything can happen in an MMA fight, and that’s exactly what happened on Saturday night on Fight Island. In one of the craziest knockouts you’ll ever see, Buckley finished Kasanganay in the second round with a spinning back kick. Following the event, Kasanagnay took to his Instagram to release an extremely classy statement.
