Earlier today news broke that Joseph Duffy had been forced out of his ‘UFC Fight Night: Dublin’ main event bout against Dustin Poirier after sustaining a concussion in training earlier this week.

Following Duffy’s withdrawal the UFC offered Norman Parke as a last-minute replacement opponent for Dustin Poirier, however Poirier turned down the bout.

With Poirer left without an opponent the UFC promoted the co-main event bout between Paddy Holohan and Hawaii’s very own Louis Smolka to the main event.

Check out some inside photos of Smolka training below, as well as the footage of ‘The Last Samurai’ announcing he has been promoted to the main event above!
