UFC Fight Night: Duffy vs. Poirier fight card shaping up

A look at the October 24th Fight Pass event in Dublin, Ireland, where lightweights Joseph Duffy and Dustin Poirier meet in a five-round main event.

On October 24th, not only does the UFC have a rare Fight Pass show, but it's in Dublin, Ireland, home to a superb atmosphere in July 2014, when Conor McGregor stopped Diego Brandao in the main event. It's certainly going to be a pleasure hearing the Irish faithful again soon. The main event is a great match-up between up-and-coming Irish lightweight Joseph Duffy and former featherweight contender Dustin Poirier. In the co-main, and perhaps a fight arguably deserving of five-round treatment, Stipe Miocic takes on Ben Rothwell with major title implications for both of these heavyweights.

One major thing to note out of the current fight list is the return of Reza Madadi, who was jailed for aggravated burglary two years ago but was recently re-signed by the UFC. The Swede will face Norman Parke in what is likely a main card bout. Here's what's in store for the Dublin crowd right now:

Joseph Duffy vs. Dustin Poirier
Stipe Miocic vs. Ben Rothwell
Patrick Holohan vs. Louis Smolka
Reza Madadi vs. Norman Parke
Cathal Pendred vs. Tom Breese
Scott Askham vs. Krzysztof Jotko
Bubba Bush vs. Garreth McLellan
Nicolas Dalby vs. Darren Till
