Donegal mixed martial artist Joseph Duffy has signed a new seven-fight contract with the UFC.
Duffy entered free agency following a win over Felix Madadi in London in March, but is now back with the UFC.
Duffy arrived at a contractual impasse with the UFC, but has now agreed what is said to be a ‘six-figure’ contract.
“Joe is happy with the new deal and is looking forward to getting back in and being more active,” Duffy’s manager, Graham Boylan, said.
The 29-year-old lightweight contender is 16-2 in his MMA career and has a 4-1 UFC record.
Bar his points loss at the hands of Dustin Poirier at UFC 195, lightweight Duffy has won all of his UFC contests inside the first round.
Duffy scored a unanimous decision win over Madadi at the O2 in London in a three-round lightweight contest in March.
The 29-year-old Burtonport man, is a former pro boxer now based in Montreal where he trains out of the Tristar Gym.
In November 2010, Duffy defeated Conor McGregor at Cage Warriors 39 in Cork, recording a stoppage after just 38 seconds.Tags:
