Highlights And Reaction From Joseph Duffy's Outstanding Performance At UFC London
By Mikey Traynor

On the last fight of his UFC contract, Irish Joe Duffy put in a performance that will surely see the organisation step up their efforts to hold onto him as he looked superb en route to a unanimous decision win over Reza Madadi.

Duffy won on all three judges rounds but it was the manner of his victory that was most pleasing as he put on a clinic in terms of shot selection and timing, and even showed off the ground-and-pound that he had been bigging up in the lead up to this fight.

In the first round we saw a beautiful reversal as Madadi looked to make things uncomfortable early on:

From here Duffy would land a massive elbow that cut Madadi right on the forehead and made it difficult for him to see going forward.

Duffy soon showed off his hands and tagged Madadi on several occasions as he mixed up his rhythm to keep his opponent guessing.

There was a lot of respect between the two fighters as the fight ended, but it was clear to see the damaged that the Irishman caused to Madadi as he left the octagon.

The big question now is what lies ahead for Duffy, as with his UFC contract up it seems from his recent interviews that he does not hold too much hope for a satisfactory deal being offered to him, but Bellator will no doubt be more than happy to make him the face of their continued expansion in these areas.

Dan Hardy on the commentary even went as far as to say that his hands were so impressive that it made him want to see a rematch with Conor McGregor before giving a recap of his handiwork:

Those who watched the event live were left in no doubt as to whether or not he deserves to be kept on by the UFC:

Well done Joe!

Now we'll wait and see just how impressed the UFC top brass were by his performance in London.
