The Legendary Fight of Joseph Duffy & Conor McGregor

Joseph Duffy, the Last Man to Beat Conor McGregor

Before joining the UFC, Conor McGregor suffered a crushing 38-second submission defeat to fellow Irishman Joseph Duffy. Conor McGregor, who had been a teenage Dublin competitor, was Joseph Duffy’s opponent at Cage Warriors 39.

McGregor of 2010 was nothing like the outspoken UFC featherweight champion nowadays. McGregor talked about how sure he was in pre-fight talks, but it was a distinct type of conviction. It was a calm assurance. He wasn’t the type of warrior to speak trash about his competitor; rather, he’d go into the ring and show himself with his abilities, he claimed.

In 2010,  McGregor was a 4-1 novice fighter in Cage Warriors FC. He was confident and assured, but he was still establishing the bombastic personality that has earned him one of the most popular MMA fighters. CWFC paired Conor McGregor against Joseph Duffy in a lightweight bout.
