Not too many fighters get tapped for a headlining fight in their third UFC bout, but due to what Joe Duffy’s showcased, he’s received just that.
Duffy has been booked to fight Dustin Poirier in the main event of UFC Fight Night 76, which will take place on October 24th in Dublin, Ireland. Of course, it helps that Duffy is from Ireland, but the main reason he’s set for the main event is because of his abilities.
Duffy arrived in the UFC earlier this year armed with a 12-1 record, which included a win over Conor McGregor. In his Octagon debut in March, Duffy put away Jake Lindsey with strikes, and you can watch that fight below.
If Duffy goes out and scores an impressive win over Poirier, the UFC could have two, very bankable Irish stars on the roster (of course McGregor already is one).
