UFC President Dana White tabbed Dublin, Ireland's 80,000-seat Croke Park stadium as the potential site of featherweight champion Conor McGregor's first title defense on more than one occasion in 2015.
Despite numerous obstacles.
However, residents of Dublin don't want the "brutal and violent" sport of mixed martial arts (MMA) competition going down inside their city staple.
The rising lightweight affirms his stance on a future battle with the rambunctious Irishman to MMA Fighting:
"Without a doubt, I feel we could sell out Croke Park. It would be like the Gaelic; Donegal versus Dublin. Of course, I definitely feel that's something that could sell out Croke Park. I feel that by the end of the year people are going to be talking about that fight a lot more. I don't think 2016, I think [it happens] in 2017."
Both men have to keep up their winning ways this year in order to stay on schedule.
Duffy then has to hold up his end of the bargain by taking out No. 12-ranked lightweight, Dustin Poirier, on the UFC 195 Fight Pass "Prelims" tomorrow night (Sat., Jan. 2, 2016) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
A winner of two-straight inside the Octagon, the 27-year-old native of Donegal, Ireland, already has the confidence needed to finish McGregor the exact same way he did five years ago, though the Dubliner would happily disagree.
