Tom 'Fire Kid' DuQuesnoy Signs With BAMMA UK
BAMMA, leaders in MMA sports entertainment and the home of European MMA, is proud to announce a contract extension with BAMMA Featherweight Champion Tom 'Fire Kid' DuQuesnoy.
Widely regarded as the world's number one MMA prospect, Tom DuQuesnoy burst on to the BAMMA stage against James Saville at BAMMA 14, where he bested Saville via TKO at 4:04 of the second round with a flurry of punches and elbows.
The Sambo specialist then returned at the Copper Box Arena, London for BAMMA 15, where he once again showed his elite level skills in defeating fellow frenchman Teddy Violet for the inaugural BAMMA Featherweight title.
Now fighting out of the 'Man of Shadow' team in France, DuQuesnoy has been honing his skills in the US since his first two title defences at BAMMA 17 & 18 (Vs. Ashleigh Grimshaw (NC) & Krzysztof Klaczek).
The Fire Kid had the following to say on re-signing with the promotion.
"I had offers from all over the globe, but I have chosen to stay with BAMMA. They are the most exciting promotion in Europe and they are making some very big statements on where they are headed. It's exciting for me to be able to showcase my skills on the biggest and the best platform in Europe. Their new TV deal with Spike TV allows me to prove myself to the biggest audience possible.
I am very happy with the BAMMA team as well, who made this choice easy for me to decide on. I look forward to taking on all the challengers from around Europe. I earned this belt and it is my intention to defend and keep it!
Good news will arrive very soon & to stay up to date, you can find me on social networks as 'Tom Fire Kid' "
News on Tom 'Fire Kid' DuQuesnoy's first title defence on the newly signed deal will be announced very shortly.
