After scoring one of the craziest knockouts in UFC history last week, Joaquin Buckley is set to return to the Octagon sooner than later.

Buckley will square off against undefeated middleweight Jordan Wright at UFC 255 on Nov. 21, the promotion announced.

The talented prospect defeated Impa Kasanganay with a jump spinning back kick in the second round at UFC Fight Night in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, a finish many called the most spectacular in the promotion's history.

Buckley is 1-1 in the UFC and 10-3 overall. Before knocking out Kasanganay, he suffered his first loss in over two years after getting TKO'd by Kevin Holland in August.

Wright is also a rising MMA prospect, sporting a career 11-0 record with all of his victories coming via finish - 10 in the first round. Wright beat Ike Villanueva in his UFC debut in August with a doctor's stoppage.
