Poirier-Duffy Rescheduled for UFC 195

While an injury kept Joe Duffy from his UFC Fight Night main event against Dustin Poirier last Saturday in Dublin, the two lightweight standouts now have a new date to meet in the Octagon, as they will face off in a UFC 195 bout on January 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Tickets for UFC 195, which is headlined by the UFC welterweight title fight between Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit, are on sale now.

A native of Donegal, the 27-year-old Duffy roared onto the UFC scene in 2015 with back-to-back first-round finishes of Jake Lindsey and Ivan Jorge, the latter bout earning "Irish" Joe Performance of the Night honors. Now, the last man to beat current interim featherweight champion Conor McGregor will face off with Louisiana's Poirier, a longtime 145-pound contender who has found new life in his return to the lightweight division, picking up a pair of Performance of the Night bonuses for his knockouts of Diego Ferreira and Yancy Medeiros.
