Then Buckley got a chance to make the PFL roster when he took on Jon Cunningham on the PFL challenger series. While he wasn’t selected for a PFL contract, he did look great in his fight as he earned the first TKO win of his career.

Following that win, Buckley fought in the Titan FC promotion and picked up another decision win when he defeated Dai’kwon Fuse at Titan FC 77.

After a great start to his professional career, Buckley’s next step comes with a great opportunity as he will fight in the co-main event of LFA 144.

As for his opponent, it’s another major step for Buckley as he is getting his toughest opponent to date in Jordan Heiderman.
