Todd Duffee wasn’t taking phone calls. Not from his manager Bob Cook, not from anybody.

Frustrated with the business of mixed martial arts after only fighting a combined 53 seconds in nearly two years, Duffee was about to take a leap into the world of kickboxing and begin training overseas, so he was showing his apartment to a buddy when his phone began ringing off the hook just before Thanksgiving.

Finally, Cook stopped calling and simply texted Duffee: “You need to call me, it’s serious.”

What followed next was what the heavyweight prospects described as “a pretty big deal, and it was a big shock too, I’m not gonna lie. It was pretty intense.”

Todd Duffee was back in the UFC.

Great read. I can't wait for Saturday night.

''When he first came into the UFC he was very alone.'' This attitude isnt going to make him go far imo. As a professional fighter, how can you not be excited about the first opportunity to fight in the UFC?

Where does he say he wasn't excited about it?
 
The UFC cut him for no reason in the first place. Yet, they will hype him as a survivor who fell and came back, without mentionning that they are partly responsible.
 
I support Mr. Todd Duffee, this guy is a special kind of talent.
 
I never really understood all his issues with the UFC. I still don't.

But always nice to see a guy get a second chance. Hope he comes healthy and prepared
 
Lots of talent, lets see how well he can take a clean shot though
 
Hope he does well. I don't see De Fries offering too many problems.
 
Hopefully he plays it smart and disables his Twitter account for the duration of his second go round of a UFC career.
 
Todd Duffee is a clown. Dude needs TRT at age 23, give me a break. He's never going to be a top guy even with that advantage. His shitty attitude is just another reason not to like him.

Jealousy is pretty ugly dude. Don't hate just because you will never make it to the UFC EVER.

Very excited to see Duffee back in the UFC. Hope he wins and then continues to work on his kicks and his striking defense.
 
Russow has already hammered out the blueprint for finishing Duffee
