GIF: Uber prospect Tom Duquesnoy defends BAMMA title with TKO victory over Krzysztof Klaczek

Is the "Fire Kid" UFC bound?


If you scour the internet looking for the top ranked prospects in mixed martial arts (MMA) today, you will more than likely encounter France's Tom Duquesnoy at the top of nearly every list.

The "Fire Kid" is currently the British Association of Mixed Martial Arts (BAMMA) featherweight champion, and he defended his belt this afternoon (Sat., Feb. 21, 2015) in the main event of BAMMA 18 at Wolverhampton Civic Hall in Wolverhampton, England.

After a rough first round for the highly touted prospect, Duquesnoy stormed back in the second and third round en route to a vicious (technical) knockout via a body kick and follow-up punches over Krzysztof Klaczek at 1:37 of the final frame.

BAMMA provides the highlights on their Twitter:

With the victory, Duquesnoy improved his MMA record to 10-1-1, with his only loss coming to current UFC prospect Makwan Amirkhani.

Finishing all but two of his opponents, you can expect the "Fire Kid" to bring the highlights once UFC inevitably signs the blue-chip 21-year old prospect.
