Kanye West pays tribute to Joaquin Buckley’s viral UFC knockout as rapper releases new tune (VIDEO) — RT Sport Information
Kanye West was impressed by Joaquin Buckley’s viral knockout at the UFC event on ‘Fight Island’ last weekend when the rap superstar used loop recordings of breathtaking kick to promote the release of his new song.
Buckley’s sensational knockback KO of Imapa Kasanganay went viral on the global Twittersphere, catapulting the unannounced fighter to stardom (and a $ 50,000 bonus after the fight) – and even caught the attention of rapper and would-be United States presidential candidate. West there.
“The whole team is so energetic that I had to publish themed music close close,” wrote West on his social media platforms, accompanied by looped footage of the battle-filled recording.
The post came amid a spate of tweets from the rapper celebrating Kentucky poll results showing he was in the state ahead of both Donald Trump and Joe Biden ahead of the Nov. 3 election.
The survey in question has since been confirmed as invalid.
Regardless of West’s political ambitions, he couldn’t hold back how impressed he was with Buckley’s performance in the cage last Saturday night. The video also includes references to his presidential bid and, perhaps even stranger, footage of Anakin Skywalker and duel with Obi-Wan Kenobi from the movie, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
