Earlier today news broke that Joseph Duffy had been forced out of his ‘UFC Fight Night: Dublin’ main event bout against Dustin Poirier this Saturday due to a concussion.

It didn’t take long for interim UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor to offer to replace Duffy last-minute given that he already defeated Poirier.

With Poirier left opponent-less for Saturday, the UFC has promoted the co-main event fight between Paddy Holohan and Louis Smolka to the main event. Hear Smolka make the announcement by clicking THIS LINK.
