Duffy met McGregor around 8 years ago in an amateur fight. Even though McGregor was a different fighter back then, Duffy absolutely decapitated McGregor via submission and it took him only 39 seconds. Despite having such a huge name on his resume, Duffy does not wish to call McGregor out for a rematch. (via Twitter):

“There’s always going to be people throwing my name out there [because of our first fight]. For me, it’s just that far in the past…the option is always open. If that happened, I would love it. Croke Park, it’s a dream for anyone; it’s like a Dublin vs. Donegal match for me. It would be a huge fight and I’m pretty sure we would sell out Croke Park no bother, but it’s not something I’m pursuing, I just want to do this my way and I suppose I’ve got to take one fight at a time.

“If that opportunity presents itself, of course I’d love to have that fight again. Look what [McGregor] has gone on to do and obviously I would love to prove that I could beat him again. I’m not going looking for [a rematch]; I’m just focusing on my own thing. I’m not going to be calling him out and all this craic, it’s just not me.”

Duffy is slated to fight dangerous British prospect Marc Diakiese at Fight Night 147 in London on March 16.
