UFC FN 127: Tom Duquesnoy on Why he Didn’t Argue Loss to Cody Stamann
By FCF Staff
The saying ‘you learn more from your losses than your defeats’ is a familiar one, and it sounds like Tom Duquesnoy has listened to it.
The French fighter is booked to fight Terrion Ware this Saturday at UFC Fight Night 127, which will take place in London, England. The bout will mark the first time Duquesnoy has competed, since he lost via split decision to Cody Stamann last October. Prior to that, the bantamweight hadn’t lost a fight since 2013.
In advance of this Saturday’s contest, Duquesnoy (15-2) spoke with Bloody Elbow, and he had this to say about his loss to Stamman:
“Instead of trying to argue the split decision, I think I put everything on myself and try to learn from the mistakes I may have committed during the fight,” said Duquesnoy when asked his opinion on the split decision. “For me there’s just one way to progress and to learn from your mistakes. It is to say that it’s your fault.”
“From there you come to a new game plan, a new way to train. We are trying to get a new and better version of me.”
Ware (17-7), meanwhile, is coming off consecutive losses to Sean O’Malley and the aforementioned Stamann.
