As Duffy was immersed in training preparations for his fight with Poirier – he was unable to make his uncle’s funeral in Donegal.Duffy posted the following picture (above) with the following text on his Facebook timeline today, “I didn’t get the result I wanted, but wanted to dedicate the fight to my Uncle Paddy.“My thoughts are with Jim, Neil and Maureen.“Sorry we couldn’t be there.” Duffy narrowly lost out to Poirier in a bruising battle on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.Duffy produced a spirited performance – with his gutsy display earning plaudits from American MMA fight fans.Duffy’s uncle was extremely proud of Duffy’s exploits in the Octagon before his death – and we’re sure despite Duffy’s narrow loss on Saturday that he’ll continue to be proud of his nephew as he continues to build his reputation in the UFC. UFC STAR DUFFY IN TOUCHING TRIBUTE TO UNCLE WHO DIED ON CHRISTMAS DAY was last modified: January 4th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:deathJoseph DuffyPaddy Neilly GallagherPublicanUFCUnclelast_img read more
