There are now multiple angles of a video game-style knockout which has been dubbed one of the best finishes in UFC history.

Joaquin Buckley's middleweight bout against Impa Kasanganay may have only been the fifth match on a 13-fight card, but it ultimately stole the UFC Fight Island 5 show in Abu Dhabi.

Kasanganay caught a Buckley kick midway through the second round and appeared to have the American in a vulnerable position.

But with quick thinking and even quicker feet, Buckley attacked with ingenuity, hitting Kasanganay with a jump spinning back kick which appeared to knock his opponent out on his feet, before he crumpled to the floor.

Those watching Octagonside at the behind-closed-doors Flash Forum venue were visibly in shock, watching on open-mouthed and with their arms in the air.

UFC posted footage of the finish on its official Twitter account and it smashed the company's record for most-watched video with 12.4 million views at the time of writing.

The UFC has now released several different angles of the knockout.

"It's still surreal right now," Buckley told reporters at the post-fight media event.

Considering his new-found status as an overnight sensation, staying under-the-radar may well be hard.
