UFC Dublin takes place at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland this weekend. With main and co-main event bouts scratched, it is local favourite Paddy Holohan that now tops the bill against Louis Smolka in front of a partisan crowd.

Smolka makes the trip from Hawaii and looks to take his second Irish scalp after defeating Neil Seery last time out. He knows Holohan is a formidable opponent and is happy to do the dance after ‘The Hooligan’ called him out post-victory at UFC Glasgow.

“He’s going to be a little tricky at first,” admitted Smolka, but he believes he has the antidote to the Holohan offence.

He’s not too fazed by the Dublin crowd either and will no doubt be lapping up the very rare opportunity to main event a UFC card, especially so early in his Octagon career.
