Scott Askham (born 20 May 1988) is an English mixed martial artist currently competing in the Middleweight division of KSW. A professional since 2010, he has also competed for the UFC, Absolute Championship Berkut, BAMMA, and Cage Warriors.

Background[edit]

Born and raised in West Yorkshire, Askham began training in mixed martial arts as a teenager and took part in several amateur fights before turning professional in 2010. During this time, he also worked for a bit with a maintenance company installing street lighting.[4]

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Prior to his professional career, Askham held an amateur MMA record of 3-0. He made his professional debut competing as a middleweight for various regional promotions across Great Britain, including stints in Cage Warriors and BAMMA. He was able to compile an undefeated record of 12 - 0 along the way, finishing a large portion of his fights in the first round.

After his TKO stoppage of Max Nunes in June 2014, Askham signed with the UFC.[5]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Askham made his promotional debut on 4 October 2014 as he faced Magnus Cedenblad at UFC Fight Night 53.[6][7] Despite dropping Cedenblad with a front kick in round two, Askham was controlled through the rest of the fight, and was defeated via unanimous decision.[8]

Askham next faced Antonio dos Santos Jr. on 20 June 2015 at UFC Fight Night 69.[9] Askham won the fight via KO in the first round.[10]

Askham faced Krzysztof Jotko on 24 October 2015 at UFC Fight Night 76.[11] He lost the fight by split decision.[12]

Askham faced Chris Dempsey on 27 February 2016 at UFC Fight Night 84.[13] He won the fight via knockout in the first round.[14] He was also awarded a Performance of the Night bonus.[15]

Askham was briefly scheduled to face Anthony Smith on 8 July 2016 at The Ultimate Fighter 23 Finale.[16] However, Askham pulled out of the bout on 28 April and was replaced by Cezar Ferreira.[17]

Following a quick recovery, Askham was rescheduled to face promotional newcomer Jack Hermansson on 3 September 2016 at UFC Fight Night 93. He lost the fight by unanimous decision.[18]

Askham faced Brad Scott on 18 March 2017 at UFC Fight Night 107.[19] He lost the fight by split decision and was subsequently released from the promotion.[20]

Post-UFC career[edit]

Askham fought fellow British UFC veteran Luke Barnatt on 23 September 2017 in the main event at ACB 70.[21] He won the fight by split decision.

On 10 December 2017 Askham revealed a three-fight contract with KSW.[22]
