Tom Duquesnoy vs. Terrion Ware set for UFC London
French UFC bantamweight Tom Duquesnoy (15-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) is set to face American Terrion Ware (17-6 MMA, 0-2 UFC) at UFC London in March, 2018.
The French starlet will be looking to get back to winning ways after suffering defeat at the hands of Cody Stamann at UFC 216 via split decision. This marks the second professional loss for “Firekid” so far, after losing to current UFC contender, Makwan Amirkhani back in 2013.
Duquesnoy has been renowned for his emphatic striking his whole career and showcased this in his debut when he stopped Patrick Williams inside the second round. However, even then; question marks were raised of Duquesnoy’s ability and level.
At just 24 years of age, however, the future is bright for the Frenchman and will certainly be a fighter that the UFC look to progress slowly and naturally as opposed to throwing him into the deep end.
His opponent, Ware, is far more experienced than the youngster, with 23 professional fights, winning 17 of them.
Despite this, it hasn’t been the start that “Flash” would have hoped for with two losses in his opening two fights with the kingpin promotion.
Ware also lost to Stamann, in his UFC debut, and recently suffered defeat at the hands of newcomer Sean O’Malley. Ware will be hungrier than ever to claim his first UFC victory.
UFC London is set for March 17, 2018 at the O2 Arena in London, England.
