Duffy out of UFC Dublin, Smolka-Holohan now headlines

Promoted to the main event is a flyweight matchup between top prospects Louis Smolka and Paddy Holohan.

Smolka is coming off a big win over Neil Seery this past summer at UFC 189. Prior to that, he picked up a knockout win in late 2014, which got him back into the winning column following his first pro-loss to Chris Cariaso.

Holohan is riding a two-fight winning streak with two dominant decisions over Vaughan Lee and Shane Howell. The Irishman is 3-1 in the promotion, with a lone loss against Chris Kelades.

UFC Fight Night 76 takes place from the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland this Saturday.
