The ever increasingly controversial Kanye West took a break from his campaigning to become the next President of the United States to produce and share a video ripped from what went down at UFC Fight Island 5 last weekend.

On twitter the musician posted a video showing Joaquin Buckley’s viral spinning head kick KO of Impa Kasanganay. The video was accompanied with the caption, “THE WHOLE TEAM IS SO ENERGIZED THAT I HAD TO RELEASE THEME MUSIC NAH NAH NAH”.

The video repeats the clip of Buckley’s KO 13 times. The only other visual used in the video is a short clip from Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, showing Obi-Wan Kenobi, played by Ewan McGregor, tell Anakin Skywalker, played by Hayden Christensen, “I have the High Ground.”

The two minutes and 20 second long video includes original music from West talking up his career, faith, and status as a Presidential Candidate.
