Cathal Pendred to compete at UFC's Ireland event in July

Another Irish fighter has been added to the UFC's July event in Dublin.

Irish welterweight Cathal Pendred has been signed by the UFC and will compete on home soil in his official debut. The former Cage Warriors champion was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter 19, but lost a close split decision in the semi-finals. Despite that, he has been welcomed into the organization to fight in Dublin on July 19th according to a tweet he sent out:

His opponent on the card will be Mike King (5-0), a fellow TUF 19 contestant. He was eliminated in the quarter-finals.

Pendred (13-2-1) last officially competed in mid-2013 when he upset Che Mills at a Cage Warriors event. The main event of the Dublin show will see another Irish fighter, Conor McGregor, facing off with with TUF winner Diego Brandao.
