July’s UFC Fight Night 72 event in Scotland appears to have its first fight.

Combate is reporting that lightweights Joseph Duffy (13-1 MMA) and Ivan Jorge (26-4 MMA) have agreed to throw down in Glasgow.

The last man to defeat “The Notorious” Conor McGregor, Joseph Duffy, recently made his UFC debut at March’s UFC 185 event in Dallas, where he scored an impressive first-round knockout victory over Jake Lindsey. The victory marked “Irish Joe’s” third win in a row, with all three wins coming by form of stoppage. The 27-year-old Irishman has earned 12 stoppages in his 13 career victories.

Meanwhile, Ivan Jorge was most recently seen in action at February’s UFC Fight Night event in Brazil, where he earned a decision win over Josh Shockley. “Batman” has won 8 of his past 9 bouts, with his lone loss in that time coming to Rodrigo Damm via decision.

UFC Fight Night 72 goes down July 18 live from SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland.

FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass are expected to carry the card.
