These up and coming bantamweights were surging up the ranks showing off their talented skillsets up until they met fellow prospect Cody Stamann. In July and October last year, he earned narrow decisions against Terrion Ware and Tom Duquesnoy respectively.
This snapped Ware’s four-fight winning streak on his UFC debut and he struggled to bounce back in his next fight against Sean O’Malley. This was a close decision but without a UFC win so far, all the pressure is on him to respond.
His hands are full though with yet another top prospect. The young Frenchman has bags of potential and his loss to Stamann was his first loss in 13 fights. He is incredibly well-rounded and is improving exponentially with the Jackson Wink MMA team.
They are both natural finishers and it will be very interesting to see how they respond to their recent losses. Ware seemed to get overwhelmed with the reach and flair of O’Malley’s striking in his last fight but crucially has the reach advantage over Duquesnoy.
This fight is expected to be close and tense and a well-executed game plan will be crucial for both men but with the tactical minds of his coaches behind him, Duquesnoy may just earn the decision.
Winner: Duquesnoy via Decision
