Kanye West Uses Joaquin Buckley KO Highlight to Promote New Song

Joaquin Buckley reached unprecedented viral fame over the weekend thanks to his ridiculous knockout of Imapa Kasanganay at UFC on ESPN+ 37.

The knockout has been considered one of the most impressive in UFC history and it even caught the attention of Kanye West.

As the video continued to spread like wildfire on social media, Kanye used the highlight video as an opportunity to release a new song.

“THE WHOLE TEAM IS SO ENERGIZED THAT I HAD TO RELEASE THEME MUSIC NAH NAH NAH,” Kanye wrote.

The video features Buckley’s knockout — which earned him a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus — along with a clip from the Obi-Wan Kenobi vs. Anakin Skywalker duel in Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

You can check out the new song below.
