With Conor McGregor more than making waves in the UFC Featherweight division, the man who beat him back in 2010 is hoping to do the same in the lightweight ranks.

Donegal fighter Joseph Duffy, who was named as one of the UFC's 10 best newcomers for 2015 is up against another man who took on McGregor - and lost - in Dustin Poirier at UFC195 on January 2nd as the American continues his return to lightweight.

In a promo ahead of the fight, Duffy has his sights set on taking this opportunity to "stamp his name in the UFC" after the original Dublin fight against Poirier was called off in October as a result of a head injury suffered by the Irishman.
