'He's excelling' - Joseph Duffy receives Rory MacDonald's seal of approval

The Irish lightweight meets Dustin Poirier in UFC Dublin’s main event at the 3Arena on 24 October.

Joseph Duffy On the Fly

THE UFC’S RETURN to Dublin is just over a week away, when Ireland’s Joseph Duffy will face Dustin Poirier in the headline bout.

Donegal man Duffy has been training hard at the famous Tristar Gym in Montreal, where the likes of Georges St-Pierre and Rory MacDonald have called home.

In the first episode of a new ‘On the Fly’ series, the 27-year-old works up a sweat with some shark tank sparring and shows us around his digs.

MacDonald said: “Joe is super dedicated. He’s focused, he’s training hard, he’s pushing through the tough times and he’s excelling when he’s feeling good. He’s really grinding right now and he’s going to show up on fight night.”
