Tom Duquesnoy's passion for MMA came to him very young after watching the DVDs of the Pride Fighting Championships and the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). His model at that time was the Russian Fedor Emelianenko, champion of Pride FC.

He won his first two fights at Killacam in 35 seconds, which gave him the right to fight in the British Association of Mixed Martial Arts (BAMMA), the largest European organization. He becomes the featherweight champion (-65.8kg) of the Bamma for his second fight in this organization.
