Top prospect Tom Duquesnoy submits Alan Philpott, defends bantamweight title at BAMMA 27

New, comments

Tom Duquesnoy is still a two-division BAMMA champion, though he could soon be plying his trade on a grander stage.

Duquesnoy, a highly regarded 23-year-old prospect who trains out of Jackson-Winkeljohn, defended his BAMMA bantamweight title on Friday, finishing Alan Philpott via second-round rear-naked choke at BAMMA's co-promoted show with Bellator in Dublin, Ireland.

The fight marked the final bout on the BAMMA contract of Duquesnoy (14-1), who currently reigns as the promotion's 135-pound and 145-pound champion. The Frenchman has now gone unbeaten in 11 consecutive contests since his lone career loss to Makwan Amirkhani in 2013, with eight of those wins coming by way of stoppage. And considering his current run, it may not be long until the UFC comes calling.
