James Krause is a name that you may see coming up more and more around these days. Now, even Joaquin Buckley has something interesting about him. Krause is currently under $5 million in debt after alleged fight-fixing scandal within the UFC.

Krause has previously been accused of some things that really put him in a negative light in the UFC. He is an ex-MMA coach and now, Buckley, who recently defeated Vincente Luque at UFC Atlantic City, seems to have some news for the fans that might surprise them.

In the light of the recent controversy involving James Krause, perhaps Joaquin Buckley decided to take a jab at things. Because his recent video is either a rather deadpan joke, or complete reality. If it’s the second one, it is highly concerning and perhaps Dana White might just want to step in.

“It’s something that’s been on my mind, something I feel like I gotta get off my chest. You guys know that I had one of the biggest fights of my career this weekend in Atlantic City. A beautiful win. But it’s just, it’s something that I saw, something that I heard that I feel like I gotta confess to the world.”

“After my fight with Vincente Luque, and me getting my hand raised. I seen Vincente. . .in his room, I saw James Krause, I couldn’t hear initial conversation but I seen James Krause hand Vincente Luque a ticket. And when he handed it to him, I could slightly hear him whisper in his ear, ‘you did a good job’. Now I don’t know what this means, I don’t know what the ticket was. But it’s been messing with my head ya’ll”
