Who's excited for the Joseph Duffy vs. Dustin Poirier and Stipe Miocic vs. Ben Rothwell twinbill of fights in Dublin on Saturday? Anyone? Wait, what happened? Oh, this happened and that happened. So the new main event is Paddy Holohan against Louis Smolka, and the co-main is Reza Madadi against Norman Parke. Sometimes these things happen in MMA.
