IT WAS A good night for the Irish at UFC Fight Night 107 in London this evening with wins for Joseph Duffy and adopted favourite Gunni Nelson.

SBG fighter Nelson brought his welterweight fight against Alan Jouban — which was the co-main event — to a close less than a minute into the second round.

After an impressive first round in which he landed a big right, Nelson executed a guillotine choke that forced the tap from Jouban at the O2.

Earlier, Joe Duffy dominated a one-sided contest with Reza Madadi, which he ultimately won on a unanimous decision.
