Todd Duffee Returns: Set To Face Phil DeFries At UFC 155 | UFC News

Todd Duffee has officially been re-signed by the UFC. The once highly touted heavyweight prospect is back following a nearly two year stint outside of the UFC.

The Las Vegas Sun first reported the news.

Duffee was cut back in 2010 after a knockout loss to Mike Russow in a fight that Duffee dominated up until he was put down in the third. Dana White stated that Duffee’s attitude toward the organization was the main catalyst in his release.

Since being released by the UFC, Duffee has only faced two opponents, Alistair Overeem and Neil Grove. He split the two fights with a 19-second loss to Overeem, at Dynamite!!! 2010, and a first round TKO over Grove.

Upon his return, Duffee will face Phil DeFries, who was left without an opponent after Matt Mitrione stepped up to face Roy Nelson after Shane Carwin was injured a week ago.

    Is he going to get TKO’d in 20 seconds by Alistair Overeem again?

  2. Clay says:

    TODD DUFFEE IS THE MAN! Haters are gonna hate but duffee is a dominant force. He will whoop this fool, I will bet any amount of money. Overeem was roided up, of course he got a lucky punch! Duffee’s comeback is upon us, he fights out of Evansville IN. The toughest spot on the planet.

      Clay, shut the f uck up. You are a goof and evansville aka “fagboyville” is hardly the toughest spot on the planet. Duffee is OK but get off his nuts

    • Eric says:

      Wow… that is very interesting considering he is from the Atlanta Georgia area and still lives here and does local appearances in the Atlanta area.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      If anyone is ROIDED UP its Duffee. I mean come on the dude had to apply for TRT at 24 in the UFC. You can just look at him and tell he’s been on ROIDS since his early teens. Duffee hasn’t been within a mile of a PED test since he was in UFC 2yrs ago and he was on LEGAL ROIDS then. what kind of doctor would give a guy that looks like a super hulk testosterone treament at 24. his body is already RUINED and willnever be able to produce its own testosterone at 26. Duffee is a disgrace to MMA much like Carwin and Nate “THE CHEAT” ALL ROIDERS

    David, no where is tough for you compared to the ratchet place you crawled out of (your moms disease infested, puss covered, gaping vagina) maybe if the fumes from her cess pool of a vagina wouldn’t have killed so many of your brain cells then you would actually have an intelligent comment. But that’s just what happens to crack whores children. Next time I want your oppinion I’ll ask for it. Until then keep it to yourself.

    I went to the Boston UFC expo in 2010,and met Todd duffee. He was fucking asshole.The nicest guys there was chuck,Anderson silva,clay,Tito,and vitor,very cool guys.But yeah he was a prick!

  6. Sasquatch says:

    Todd won’t last long… he’s one of those cases when someone looks a lot tougher then they really are.

  7. Nuthugger says:

    Duff Toffee…won’t last very long.

  8. saiasaka says:
