Blue chip European prospect Tom Duquesnoy will look to bounce back from his first UFC loss when he meets Terrion Ware at UFC Fight Night 127 in London on March 17.
The UFC announced the fight on Monday morning.
After marking his promotional debut with a second-round TKO finish of Patrick Williams at UFC on FOX 24, “Fire Kid” was bested over three rounds when he clashed with another promising bantamweight, Cody Stamann, at UFC 216. The loss to Stamann snapped a 12-fight win streak for the French fighter.
Duquesnoy (15-2) was snapped up by the UFC after rising to prominence on the European scene with BAMMA. He claimed both the promotion’s featherweight and bantamweight titles before he put pen to paper with the UFC.
Ware (17-6) has provided litmus tests for two exciting bantamweights since signing for the UFC. Despite losing decisions to Stamann and DWTNCS standout Sean O’Malley, “Flash” has showcased some stellar boxing attributes as well as a granite chin.
