Watch Tom Duquesnoy finish Patrick Williams at UFC on FOX 24.
It wasn’t an easy Octagon debut for highly-touted French bantamweight Tom Duquesnoy, but he still was able to finish in style against an exhausted Patrick Williams at UFC on FOX 24. Williams was aggressive early and even scored a flash knockdown, but by the end of the first round he had his hands on his knees and Duquesnoy was still coming forward. He nearly KO’d Williams at the end of round 1 with brutal elbows, then actually got the TKO with elbows and punches in round 2.
