This coming weekend, the Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Ireland for UFC Fight Night 76, aka UFC Dublin.

And wouldn’t you know it, Ireland’s brashest export to the UFC, interim featherweight champion Conor McGregor, has found a way into the headlines.

In case you missed the news, as we described here at Caged Insider, UFC Dublin headliner Joseph Duffy was announced yesterday to have bowed out of the event due to injuries.

(Unfortunately, Duffy’s exit marked the second key UFC Dublin match-up to be cancelled in recent weeks, with both heavyweight contender Stipe Miocic bowing out due to injuries.)

So, Conor McGregor, who just happens to have endured his last career loss to Duffy back in 2010, took to Twitter.

But not only did “The Notorious One” cast the expected stones at old rival Duffy, he actually tried to stump for a match-up with Duffy’s scheduled opponent, Dustin Poirier:

McGregor made light of Duffy suffering a concussion at TriStar Gym in Canada:

McGregor, of course, is scheduled to face Jose Aldo in December in one of the year’s most anticipated bouts. So there’s really no chance of the UFC scheduling him to replace Duffy here. Also, McGregor won a one-sided bout against Dustin Poirier last year.

But, we’re talking about him, again — so, one may chalk it up as another win for McGregor.
