Not long after it was revealed that Jospeh Duffy has signed with the UFC, the promotion has announced that the Irish lightweight will battle Vagner Rocha on March 14th.

The bout will be part of UFC 185, which will take place in Dallas, Texas.

Duffy (12-1), who is the last man to defeat Conor McGregor, is coming off a highlight reel, knockout win over Julien Boussuge at a Cage Warriors card in November. The former pro boxer has gone 4-1 in his last 5 bouts.

Rocha (11-4) will be looking to rebound from a choke-out loss to Jake Matthews in November, which marked the Brazilian fighter’s UFC debut.

UFC 185 will feature a lightweight fight between champion Anthony Pettis and Rafeal dos Anjos.
