WE’RE JUST FOUR days removed from UFC Fight Night 76, which takes place on Saturday night at Dublin’s 3Arena.

The event will be headlined by a lightweight bout between Dustin Poirier and Donegal’s Joseph Duffy, for whom the fight represents an opportunity to crack the 155lbs rankings.

The UFC have released this promo ahead of the fight, featuring commentator Joe Rogan giving Duffy his seal of approval. Rogan is also a big fan of Poirier’s skills, however, but this preview has heightened our excitement levels for Saturday’s headliner nevertheless.

“Dustin Poirier is wild, aggressive and confident, and he has a dynamic range of skills. He has a wicked D’Arce [choke], he’s got a full range of submission techniques, both on top and off his back. He is a very complete mixed martial arts fighter, as is Joe Duffy.

“People who aren’t aware of the talent level of Joe Duffy are going to get a treat when they see him face Dustin Poirier. He is very talented, both on the ground and standing up.

“He has a wide variety of kicking techniques, knees, elbows… and the winner of this fight is going to emerge as a must-look-at option and a potential contender fight for the 155lbs division,” says Rogan.

Roll on Saturday night…
