UFC Signs International Double Champion


The man who holds both the British Association Of Mixed Martial Arts (BAMMA) Featherweight and Bantamweight Titles, Tom Duquesnoy, has signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC.

Duquesnoy (14-1-0-1NC) broke the news himself via Facebook:

Jiri Prochazka-Glover Teixeira Rematch Scheduled For UFC 282 In December

Duquesnoy will be entering the promotion riding a ten fight winning streak, one that has lasted over three years, Eight of those ten wins came via a finish, with only two going to the judge’s scorecards.

Oddly enough, the lone loss suffered by Duquesnoy in his professional MMA career came to UFC veteran Makwan Amirkhani, Duquesnoy is currently 0-1-0 against UFC veterans in his career.

Duquesnoy also joins UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor as another fighter to be signed by the UFC while simultaneously holding two championships in another promotion, Duquesnoy held two belts in BAMMA, while McGregor was a double champion in Cage Warriors when he signed with the UFC a few years back.

There is no UFC debut date set yet for Duquesnoy, who last competed at BAMMA 27 in December 2016, successfully defending his bantamweight title against Alan Philpott via second round submission finish.
