Former dual weight champion Tom “Fire Kid” Duquesnoy has today confirmed he has signed a deal to join the UFC.
The 23-year-old has now officially announced his move to the world’s biggest mixed martial arts promotion, the UFC, in a post on his Facebook page.
Duquesnoy earned his acclaim as one of the top European Bantamweights by winning two titles in BAMMA, where he won seven fights. “Fire Kid” remains undefeated since February, 2013.
Now training out of Jackson-Wink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Frenchman has become one of the most highly touted talents among the MMA community, with many expecting him to make an immediate impact in the UFC.
