    I wonder what the hold up could be. Duffy got his new contract, said he wanted to fight. He verbally agreed to the fight and contracts went out awhile ago yet Duffy isn't signing. Any ideas? This fight would be awesome on UFC 217.

    Cycle timing or a nagging injury would be the usual issue lol

    Lol the fuck? Duffy literally just signed a new deal with the UFC, but not signing to fight?

    Honestly Duffy strikes me as one of those divas. Like Sterling and Iaquinta

    That is a great fight. Finally a well deserved step up for Vick. Sign the dotted line!

    I just read the article, the only person who says Duffy hasn't signed the contract is the author, there's no source.

    Vick's IG post says "The dream team is about to be reunited! Leaving Monday for training camp. Can't believe they still haven't announced my fight yet when I signed my contract a week ago."

    Duffy said his fight is being announced soon.

    The only delay I can think of is perhaps an injury to Duffy. Literally just signed a new contract and would get a shot on being a great card.

    Assuming this goes through, the rich just get richer on an already STACKED 217 card.

    Vick's replacement after Duffy ducks him is going to have to be a little higher ranked then.

    Fights aren't fights until a contract is signed. Verbal agreements are nothing.

    If Duffy won't fight, put Vick vs. Paul Felder or Michel Prazeres on UFC 218 or newly announced Fresno FN (123) event.

    Fine with me. I just wanna see dude get KO'ed back down the rankings like when he fought Dariush.

    I'm anxious to see some fights announced for the Fresno card. If the card is worth it, I'll make the drive.
