UFC officials on Thursday announced the bout between Duquesnoy (16-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) and Wood (14-3 MMA, 1-0 UFC).
UFC 232 takes place Dec. 29 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, though broadcast plans and the bout order haven’t been finalized.
Duquesnoy, 25, will enter the event with just one loss in his past 14 outings, a split decision against Cody Stamann at UFC 216 in October 2017. “Fire Kid,” from France, rebounded from his only setback over the past five years with a victory over Terrion Ware at UFC Fight Night 127 in March.
Duquesnoy will look to carry that momentum forward against former Cage Warriors bantamweight champion Wood, 25. The Brit made a splash in his octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 131 in June when he scored a second-round submission of dangerous veteran Johny Eduardo to extend his winning streak to six.
With the addition, the UFC 232 card now includes:
- Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson – for light heavyweight title
- Cris Cyborg vs. Amanda Nunes
- Corey Anderson vs. Ilir Latifi
- Ryan Hall vs. B.J. Penn
- Arnold Allen vs. Gilbert Melendez
- Michael Chiesa vs. Carlos Condit
- Megan Anderson vs. Cat Zingano
- Tom Duquesnoy vs. Nathaniel Wood
- At long last, UFC 230 has an official poster for Daniel Cormier vs. Derrick Lewis
- Katlyn Chookagian vs. Jessica Eye added to UFC 231 in Toronto
- Cat Zingano moves to featherweight, meets Megan Anderson at UFC 232
