The Sun newspaper has confirmed that Cathal Pendred will go up against Tom Breese at UFC Fight Night Dublin October 24th at the 3 Arena.
Cathal Pendred (17-3) is coming off his first loss in the UFC when he fought John Howard at UFC 189 in Las Vegas. After that loss Pendred expressed his thoughts over twitter about taking time off from MMA to pursue a pro boxing fight to improve on his standup, but fighting on the Dublin card was something he said he couldn’t miss. Pendred made his debut when the UFC came to Dublin last year and defeated Mike King by submission in round two. That event was headlined by Cathal’s SBG teammate, Conor McGregor. After his debut Pendred went on to win three decision victories before his recent loss at UFC 189.
Tom Breese (8-0) is a Tristar training partner of Joseph Duffy. Breese recently won his UFC debut back in May when he defeated Luiz Jorge Dutra by TKO in Round one. He is new to the promotion but has finished all of his fights by KO/TKO or submission.
More fights for this card are due to be announced. Tickets go on sale september 2nd.
