Irish Joe Duffy May Leave The UFC After This Weekend’s Fight, And He’s Openly Discussing Free Agency

The only other man not named Nate Diaz who has defeated Ultimate Fighting Championship’s biggest star in Conor McGregor may be on his way out of the company, and he still has a fight coming up this Saturday!

“Irish” Joe Duffy is openly speaking about the status of his contract despite having to step into the octagon on Saturday at “UFC Fight Night 107” against Reza Madadi in the featured preliminary bout. Duffy’s on the last fight of his contract and spoke to The 42 about his potential free agency:

“It’s hard to say what’ll happen from here. To tell you the truth, I haven’t looked further than this fight. Obviously it’s a possibility that it will be my last [UFC] fight. Hopefully everything will be resolved pretty quickly after the fight.”

“Things have to change, and I feel that if I don’t stand up and say it now then it’s never going to happen. I’ll take what I’m given and I’ll be in the same position with my next contract. You’ve just got to be true to yourself. You’ve got to do what you feel is the right thing and that’s what I’m doing.”

“I feel like I’ve done what was asked of me. They ask us before every fight to go out and try to steal the show. I never hold back when I go out there, I try to put on the best performance possible.”

“I feel like my fights have been pretty exciting. That’s our job — to go in and put on exciting fights, not the other stuff outside the octagon. Obviously that’s a part of it but the priority is what happens in the fights.”
