Duffy confident he can beat McGregor again

December 1, 2015 8:23 am by Evan Bell

It’s been over 5 years since Joseph Duffy defeated Conor McGregor under the Cage Warriors banner.

In that time McGregor has gone on a 14 fight win streak and captured the interim UFC featherweight championship in a fight with Chad Mendes.

Duffy on the other hand was just recently signed to the UFC, and has gone on a 2-fight win streak.

While its been 5 years since Duffy defeated McGregor, he doesn’t think things would change in the event of a rematch.

He spoke to MMAJunkie

“Conor’s grown. He’s grown in confidence, and obviously his stature has grown as well. I think he’s learned a lot over the years. His ground game has improved, his striking has improved, and he’s improved everywhere. He’s obviously a different fighter five years on.”

“I would address the fight the same way I would any other: I would go in expecting the five rounds and I believe I can finish anyone,” Duffy said. “I’m always looking for them opportunities, and the fight with Conor would be no different. I would be in there, and I would be looking for that finish.

“There’s nobody I fight that I feel I can’t beat in any area. I’m one of them people – I feel I’m an opportunist. I don’t go in there planning to do one thing specifically. I just go in and let the fight unfold and react and take what opportunities are given to me.”
