If the name Joseph Duffy sounds familiar to you, it’s not just because you’ve spent more than 5 minutes in South Boston. No, Joseph Duffy Shaughnessy O’Hoolihan (actual full name) is actually an Irish-born MMA fighter with an impressive 12-1 record who was recently signed by the UFC, and not that this had anything to do with it, but he’s also the last man to defeat Conor McGregor.
Following his vicious first round KO via knee over Julien Boussuge at Cage Warriors 74, Duffy signed a multi-fight deal with the UFC in December. Although we have yet to confirm whether or not the deal included the Ferrari race down Sunset Blvd. clause that comes standard with the signing of *all* Irish fighters, UFC officials announced earlier today that Duffy’s first bout has been booked.
“Irish Joe” will face “Vabulous” Vagner Rocha (actual nickname) at UFC 185 on March 14, in what may or may not be worthy of a main card slot depending on who drops out due to injury.Read More DIGG THIS
