Chris Haseman (born 2 June 1969 in Brisbane, Queensland) is an Australian professional mixed martial artist. Haseman is currently signed with RINGS and is a longtime veteran of the promotion (1995 - 2012). Regarded as a pioneer of MMA in Australia he competed in Australia's first MMA show along with events such as the UFC and the World Fighting Alliance.

Chris competed against world class fighters such as Fedor Emelianenko, Evan Tanner and Matt Hughes and retired after losing to Canadian Bill Mahood in Spartan Reality Fight series 9 in 2004. Four years later in 2008, he returned to the sport and earned an 18-second knockout win over Japanese Yuji Hisamatsu.

Haseman was scheduled to return to the octagon in 2010 for a rematch against Elvis Sinosic at UFC 110, the first UFC event to be held in Australia.[1] However, just a day before the fight, Sinosic was forced to withdraw with a shoulder injury.[2]
