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.
Mixed martial arts career
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.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Askham made his promotional debut on 4 October 2014 as he faced Magnus Cedenblad at UFC Fight Night 53. 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.
