Notes

  • Duquesnoy is far and away the top bantamweight prospect in the world.  Duquesnoy recent made the drop from featherweight. where he would have been the top prospect as well.  The “Fire Kid” holds a 13-1 career record.  He is currently the BAMMA bantamweight champion as well.   Duquesnoy’s lone loss came back in 2013 at the hands of current UFC fighter Makwan Amikhani.  The French fighter is only 23-years old, so he certainly has age on his side.  Duquesnoy has picked up some nice wins over the likes of Brendan Loughnane, Shay Walsh and Teddy Violet.  I had heard rumblings that Duquesnoy was offered a UFC deal not too long ago, but elected to stay in BAMMA because he felt he was not quite ready.  He has good takedown defense and he is often able to dictate where a fight takes place.  His wrestling is not dynamic, but he can hold his own against most fighters.  His top game is strong and he seems to have good positioning.  He does a good job of throwing hard counters and he is very effective when moving forward and being the aggressor.  Most of his fights in the past have been at featherweight, and now that he is down a weight class, I expect the size and strength advantage to be a big factor for Tom.
