Joseph Duffy vs. Ivan Jorge on tap for UFC Glasgow on July 18

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

In case you've never heard of Joe Duffy, he's the last man to defeat current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight contender Conor McGregor, when he and "Notorious" went head-to-head under the Cage Warriors banner back in 2010.

He's kind of a big deal.

But that could all change with an upset loss to the experienced-but-unheralded Ivan Jorge, who meets the 27-year-old Irishman at the upcoming UFC Fight Night event on July 18, 2015 inside SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland, according to a report from Combate.

Duffy (13-1) made his Octagon debut with a thrilling knockout win over Jake Lindsey last March in Texas, in what amounts to his twelfth finish in 13 wins. Jorge (26-4), meanwhile, sandwiched Josh Shockley and Keith Wisniewski wins around a decision loss to Rodrigo Damm.

No other fights have been announced for the Scotland card, expected to air on FOX Sports 1; however, you can expect that to change sooner rather than later, since tickets go on sale on May 29.

Stay tuned.
