Irish Prospect Duffy Debuts in Dallas

 

The Irish Invasion continues on Saturday, March 14, as Donegal lightweight "Irish Joe" Duffy debuts at UFC 185 in Dallas against veteran Vagner Rocha.

If Duffy's name sounds familiar to UFC fans, it may not only be because of his stellar 12-1 record, but because in November of 2010, he was the last man to beat featherweight sensation Conor McGregor, submitting "The Notorious" one in just 38 seconds. Since that bout, the 26-year-old Duffy has continued to shine, winning five of six leading up to his March battle with Rocha, a respected groundfighter who is 4-1 in his last five matches.
