Conor McGregor made his way to the UFC having won titles in two different weight divisions, and now Tom Duquesnoy has done the same.
The 23 year-old Duquesnoy has been making some serious waves in European MMA, by winning BAMMA’s bantamweight and featherweight championships. Now, the French fighter is reporting on Facebook that he’s been signed by the UFC.
I signed with UFC.. I can not wait to step into the cage and compete against the best in the game .. I will let you know when and where will be my next fight
Duquesnoy makes his way to the big show having gone undefeated in 11 straight fights. The “Fire Kid” has also been training at Jackson – Wink MMA in New Mexico, which prompted the team’s coach Brandon Gibson to post the following:
