Joseph Duffy out for 6 months after successful shoulder surgery

Irishman Joseph Duffy revealed to Severe MMA’s Niall McGrath this evening that he has undergone successful surgery to repair the labrum in his shoulder.

Duffy is expecting to return to full training in six months and revealed he is hoping to fight before the end of 2018.

The Donegal man is coming off the first KO/TKO loss of his career after suffering a second round TKO loss to James Vick at UFC 217 back in November 2017.

Just on text to @Duffy_MMA who had successful surgery on his labrum (shoulder) yesterday. It’ll be 6 months until he’s back punching in the gym. So, hopefully a return before end of year.  Best wishes to Joe for a speedy recovery. One of the good guys!  @SevereMMA @arielhelwani
