todd-duffee Record: 9-2 (9 wins by TKO/KO) Height: 6-3 Weight: 240 pounds Reach: 79 inches Fighting out of: Boca Raton, Florida Fighting style: Boxing, wrestling Profile: Todd Duffee (9-2) was at one point the hottest prospect in the UFC heavyweight division. The 29-year-old American rushed onto the UFC scene with a seven-second KO over Tim Hague in his debut and was considered a future title contender. However, he was then brutally knocked out by Mike Russow in a huge upset and was released from the UFC. He then lost to Alistair Overeem in Japan. After battling injuries, he returned to the cage and defeated journeyman Neil Grove in India to get another shot in the UFC. Since returning in 2013, he has fought only twice, but both fights were knockout wins for him, over Phil de Fries and Anthony Hamilton. He called out Frank Mir, and now the two big boys meet in the main event of UFC Fight Night 71 in what is the biggest test of Duffee’s career to date. Last fight: KO over Anthony Hamilton at UFC 181 Next opponent: Frank Mir at UFC Fight Night 71
