Duffee was born in Evansville, Indiana and grew up in Eldorado, Illinois.
 Mixed Martial Arts Career
Duffee got his start into MMA after enrolling in Boxing classes at the age of sixteen. The classes were unprofessional and not well organized. After moving down to Atlanta, Georgia, Duffee was able to take classes at a real boxing gym. Duffee saw a class of people grappling. He immediately went out and rented old UFC fights after finding out about the sport. Three days later, Duffee was training at a local mma gym.
Duffee won his first three fights against Mike Walbright, Mark Haniger and Josh Bennett. Duffee then agreed to fight UFC and PRIDE FC veteran, Assuerio Silva in the main event of Jungle Fights 11. Duffee dominated the fight and won by knockout in the second round.
 Ultimate Fighting Championships
Duffee was set to make his UFC debut against Mostapha Al Turk at UFC 99: The Comeback until the UFC pulled Duffee from the fight for Mirko Filipovic. He was next announced by the UFC to face fellow UFC newcomer Mike Russow, however Duffee was then pulled from that match to face Tim Hague instead.
Duffee fought at UFC 102: Couture vs. Nogueira on the undercard against Hague. During this fight, Duffee gained the new UFC record for fastest KO, knocking out Hague in only seven seconds, after throwing the first punch that knocked him down. After he knocked Hague out, he celebrated to the camera by saying "That was an appetizer, I want to eat now Dana, let me eat!" In the post fight interview held by UFC.com, Duffee said he wants to be like Heath Herring, known for fighting the best fighters in the Heavyweight division. Interestingly enough, Duffee did not win the Knockout of the Night, as the award was handed to Nate Marquardt instead for his 21 second KO of Demian Maia.
Duffee, who began his career in the UFC training at American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Florida, was accepted into the University of Nevada - Las Vegas for its Spring 2010 semester beginning in January 2010, forcing him to look into new options for training facilities. He was said to be looking into either Xtreme Couture or Wand Fight Team, and in November 2009 it was announced that he had joined the ranks of Xtreme Couture.
- "Todd was accepted for college out there in Nevada," said a spokesman from ATT, "and moved out there to pursue that, obviously he needed to train and it was not practical for him to stay with ATT. But it was no drama or anything, it wasn’t one of those kind of splits. We wish Todd all the best for the future."
It was announced January 1, 2010 that Duffee agreed to meet near-12 year veteran Mike Russow in May at UFC 114: Rampage vs. Evans. Duffee dominated Russow for two rounds with accurate uppercuts, stiff jabs and lunging body blows. But as Duffee went into the third round for the first time in his career, he switched stances and began using his left hand almost exclusively. Whether it was that possible right-hand injury or a simple adjustment, the change allowed Russow to connect on a counter right to his opponent's temple. Duffee, who already was showing signs of fatigue, crashed to the mat in a daze – arms outstretched – and referee Josh Rosenthal quickly halted the action at the 2:35 mark of the round. Russow's impressive KO (Punch) victory earned him the Knockout of the Night Honors.
In early September of 2010, it was learned that Duffee had been released from the UFC. The release was interesting and shocked many in the MMA community, as Duffee was only 1-1 in the UFC and was dominating Mike Russow in their fight, until the one punch that ended it occurred. According to Duffee, the UFC cited his loss to Russow as the reason for his release.
- "Emotionally, I'm hurt," Duffee said. "I'm hurt more than anything because I don't know why. As a man, you just want to hear why so you can understand."
