The scheduled lightweight main event from last Saturday’s UFC Fight Night event in Dublin, Ireland — Dustin Poirier vs. Joe Duffy — has been rescheduled for the 1/2 UFC 195 PPV show in Las Vegas, NV, announced on UFC Tonight Wednesday.
The 27-year-old Duffy (14-1) was pulled out of the fight three days prior by UFC due to his suffering a concussion in training on 10/17. Poirier was asked to face Norman Parke as a replacement, but turned the fight down, feeling it would do nothing to help his career. He was hoping the Duffy fight would be rescheduled, and got his wish.
Duffy is looking to extend a four fight win streak (2-0 UFC), while Poirier (18-4) has won both of his fights since returning to lightweight.
That fight joins a lineup headlined by Robbie Lawler vs. Carlos Condit for the welterweight title, Stipe Miocic vs. Andrei Arlovski in a top heavyweight contender fight, Albert Tumenov vs. Lorenz Larkin, Neil Magny vs. Stephen Thompson, and more.
