Bantamweight prospect Tom Duquesnoy will face Terrion Ware at UFC London in March.
A pair of bantamweights looking to get back in the win column will square off in the UFC’s return to London, England.
On Monday, the UFC announced that Tom Duquesnoy will take on Terrion Ware on Saturday, March 17th. The entire card will stream live on UFC Fight Pass, with a main card start time of 3 PM ET/12 PM PT.
Duquesnoy (15-2, 1 NC) suffered a split decision loss vs. Cody Stamann back at UFC 216. The Frenchman came into the UFC with plenty of hype behind him as a potential title contender, having won and defended the BAMMA bantamweight and featherweight belts before getting the big call-up. His Octagon debut saw him TKO Patrick Williams last April.
Ware (17-6) is still in search of his first UFC win, and this fight may be his last chance to get one. “Flash” debuted on short notice against Cody Stamann, falling short by unanimous decision. In an entertaining battle vs. Dana White’s Contender Series signing Sean O’Malley, Ware also was on the wrong end of the judges’ scorecards.
UFC Fight Night: London is headlined by a heavyweight bout between former UFC champion Fabricio Werdum and former Bellator champion Alexander Volkov.
