Joaquin Buckley, Abdul Razak Alhassan Rebooked for UFC Fight Night on Feb. 19.



A matchup between middleweight knockout artists Joaquin Buckley and Abdul Razak Alhassan has been rebooked for UFC Fight Night on Feb. 19.

The bout was initially announced by Buckley on his Instagram account. Buckley and Alhassan were scheduled to lock horns at UFC on ESPN 32 before Alhassan pulled out for undisclosed reasons. UFC Fight Night takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and and is headlined by a lightweight clash between Rafael dos Anjos and Rafael Fiziev.

Alhassan snapped a three-fight losing streak in his last outing, as he knocked out Alessio Di Chirico with a head kick 17 seconds into their encounter at UFC on ESPN 30 on Aug. 28. The Fortis MMA product has finished all 11 of his professional victories via knockout or technical knockout, including five triumphs in UFC competition.

Buckley, meanwhile, is best known for his viral knockout of Impa Kasanganay at UFC Fight Night 197 in 2020, which ranked No. 1 on many year-end lists. Most recently, Buckley scored a third-round KO of Antonio Arroyo at UFC Fight Night 192 this past September to improve to 3-2 within the Las Vegas-based promotion.
