Joe Duffy Thinks McGregor Should Fight Ferguson for the Sake of UFC Rankings

Justin Golightly - October 28, 2017

You may remember that Joe Duffy is a former opponent of Conor McGregor, the UFC used this fact as promotion when they first signed the Irish lightweight. Up until meeting Nate Diaz, Duffy was the last man to not only submit McGregor, but beat him in MMA. That was seven years ago back in Cage Warriors, but Duffy still can’t escape being forever entwined with McGregor. He was recently asked who the champ champ should fight next. His answer, like many others, is Tony Ferguson. “I think for the ranking’s sake, I think obviously Conor [McGregor] against [Tony] Ferguson is the right match. It kind of legitimizes the rankings again. I believe that’s probably the right match at the minute. It will stabilize the division again and at least we’ll have a pecking order again so you know where you stand and what you need to do to get to the top of the pecking order.”

Joseph Duffy undefeated in pro boxing and has beaten Conor McGregor in the cage says 'it’s a totally different ballgame'

Russell Ess - August 2, 2017

Nate Diaz, Artemij Sitenkov, and Joseph Duffy all have one thing in common: A win over UFC superstar Conor McGregor. Duffy beat McGregor back in 2010 when the two fought in Cage Warriors where Duffy was able to submit “The Notorious” in just 38 seconds by arm triangle choke. Duffy recently renewed a contract with the UFC but also had a stint in professional boxing where he went 7-0 as a pro in 2013. So, with his experience fighting McGregor and in professional boxing, it’s interesting to hear his take on the whole Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor madness that is set to take place on August 26.
