He hasn't fought since losing by unanimous decision to Dustin Poirier at UFC 195, but Donegal's Joseph Duffy will be part of a big card in the UFC this summer.
The UFC have announced Duffy's next opponent - Mitch Clarke at UFC Fight Night 190 on July 7th. So far, only a lightweight title fight has been announced for that event - which will be part of a three night series culminating with UFC 200 on July 9th.
Rafa Dos Anjos and Eddie Alvarez will headline the night, and with Duffy and Clarke now added - it looks like they will be on the main card.

Duffy was a big riser in the UFC, shedding the title of 'the last man to beat Conor McGregor' to earn a reputation in his own right with great victories in his first two UFC bouts. He was scheduled to headline UFC Dublin early in his UFC career - but an injury meant that fight was rescheduled to UFC 195.
Duffy will now get a chance to get his UFC status back on track with a victory against Clarke.
