BAMMA Featherweight and Bantamweight Champion Tom “Fire Kid” Duquesnoy has officially signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

The news was originally reported by Jim Edwards, who later confirmed on Twitter.

He followed that tweet up with this:

Duquesnoy (14-1) is the #1 ranked Bantamweight in the United Kingdom and Ireland. “Fire Kid” is undefeated in his past 11-fights, with a No Contest coming against Ashleigh Grimshaw his only setback. Duquesnoy’s lone loss came against now UFC fighter Makwan Amirkhani, when he was choked out in the first round of their 2013 encounter. Following a tough night at the office, where Duquesnoy barely squeaked a decision over Brendan Loughnane, the Frenchman decided it was the right time to move down to bantamweight, and since doing so, has never looked better. He debuted at 135lbs with a violent knockout of Damien Rooney before starching Shay Walsh with a vicious elbow to claim the BAMMA Bantamweight Title in May of 2016. In his most recent outing, the 23-year-old submitted Alan Philpott in the second round of their bout at BAMMA 27.
