Joesph Duffy Says He’s Shocked That He’s Headlining UFC Fight Night 76

Joseph Duffy recently talked to MMAjunkie.com to promote UFC Fight Night 76, where he fights Dustin Poirier.

When asked about headlining an event for the first time, Duffy says he was was shocked.

“It was definitely a bit of a shock. I was the fight before the co-main event (at UFC Fight Night 72) in Glasgow, so I thought maybe I would be the co-main this time. But obviously when I got word I would be the main event, it makes sense for me to be the main event in Ireland.”

“I don’t feel any pressure whatsoever,” Duffy said. “With the fight, being the main event – none of that gets to me and I don’t look too much into it. Really, it’s just an idea that people put in their head. It doesn’t change anything. I’m still going to go out there and fight the same fight I’ve been training for. None of these factors play a part.

“I’ve trained for a five-round fight before, and cardio was never an issue. It’s the same this time. I feel there’s little adjustments when you’re in this position you step things up slightly, but I’m relaxed and things will go well.”

UFC Fight Night 76 takes place on October 24, 2015, at 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland. The event will air on UFC Fight Pass.
