Joseph Duffy will lock horns with Mitch Clarke at UFC Fight Night “Dos Anjos vs. Alvarez” in Las Vegas on July 7.
The promotion announced the lightweight pairing on Thursday. UFC Fight Night takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and is headlined by a 155-pound title tilt between Rafael dos Anjos and Eddie Alvarez. The card will air in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass.
Duffy had a four-bout winning streak snapped in his last outing, as he dropped a unanimous decision to Dustin Poirier at UFC 195. “Irish Joe” began his promotional tenure with stoppages of Ivan Jorge and Jake Lindsey.
Clarke also had a two-fight streak recently halted when he fell to Michael Chiesa via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night “Mendes vs. Lamas” in April 2015. Prior to that setback, “Danger Zone” had posted back-to-back triumphs over Al Iaquinta and John Maguire.
