Scott Askham and Bradley Scott added to UFC London Card February 27th.

London, UK – UFC® – the world’s largest mixed martial arts (MMA) organisation – today announced two more unmissable bouts forUFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON, both of which feature British talent.


English middleweights Bradley “Bear” Scott (10-3, fighting out of Melksham, England) and Scott Askham (13-2, fighting out of Doncaster, Yorkshire, England) will both compete in front of home fans on the night, as they take on Krzysztof Jotko (16-1, fighting out of Orneta, Poland) and Chris Dempsey (11-3, fighting out of Lower Burrell, Pennsylvania, USA) respectively.

UFC-London-top

West Country fighter Scott first took up martial arts in a bid to get in shape for the Royal Marines, discovering MMA after researching into the world’s toughest sports.  Nicknamed “Bear”, Scott has been fighting in the UFC since December 2012. His record includes two wins by submission, one of which came in his most recent fight against Dylan Andrews in Adelaide, Australia in May.

His opponent, Jotko, meanwhile was inspired by UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz to give up his job as a welder and begin fighting. Like Scott, Jotko is a Muay Thai specialist. He will be looking to silence the London crowd on February 27 by claiming his third consecutive win inside the Octagon®.

Yorkshireman Askham will also step out in front of home fans in London, as he goes up against American Chris Dempsey, Askham’s love of MMA began after watching a close friend compete in his hometown. He went on to fight at an amateur level, enjoying an unbeaten run before turning professional.

Pennsylvania native Dempsey’s last win came over The Ultimate Fighter® winner Eddie Gordon.  After a brief move up to light heavyweight, he’ll now look to make a swift transition back down to 185lbs to meet Askham.

Also set to compete at UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON are British fighters Michael “The Count” Bisping, who takes on Holland’sGegard Mousasi, Birmingham’s Tom Breese, who faces Japan’s Keita Nakamura, Mike Wilkinson who meets Makwan Amirkhani, Londoner Brad Pickett who goes up against Henry Briones and Davey Grant who tackles Marlon Vera.

UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON will be available to watch live on UFC Fight Pass.

Brad Pickett and Davey Grant added to UFC London Feb 27th

Fan favourite and veteran of the sport Brad “One Punch” Pickett (25-11-0, fighting out of London, England) will compete in front of his home crowd, as he takes on Mexican Henry “Bure” Briones (19-5-1, fighting out of San Diego, CA, USA).


London, UK – UFC® – the world’s largest mixed martial arts (MMA) organisation – has announced two more bouts set to feature on the UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON card.

UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON marks UFC’s return to England after almost two years’ absence. Tickets to the event, which is set to take place at London’s O2 Arena on February 27, sold out in just 27 minutes, demonstrating the overwhelming demand from fans across the UK for live UFC action.

East Londoner Pickett was a keen soccer player in his youth and used to box to keep fit. He later made the decision to switch to MMA in order to experiment with a variety of disciplines, and soon found a natural talent for the martial arts. Pickett has been competing in the UFC since 2011 and, in that time, has picked up no less than five Fight of the Night bonuses.

In March 2014 Pickett secured an unforgettable win over Irishman Neil Seery in front of home fans at the O2 Arena. The Englishman will undoubtedly be looking to replicate that success come February 2016.

Briones, meanwhile, is a veteran of the UFC’s reality TV show The Ultimate Fighter® and joins an impressive crop of talent emerging from Latin America, looking to make their mark. “Bure” was a dedicated hockey player before he made the decision to step into an MMA gym in his hometown of Tijuana, Mexico in 2006.

Britain’s Davey “Dangerous” Grant (8-2-0, fighting out of Bishop Auckland, County Durham, England) will also step out in front of home fans on February 27, as he goes toe-to-toe with Ecuador’s Marlon “Chito” Vera (7-2-1, fighting out of Chone, Ecuador), who is also looking to make a name for himself in the bantamweight division.

Grant first began training in MMA as a way to build up his fitness but, after progressing through his teenage years, he made a bid for a career in the sport.

In 2013, Grant was a standout on The Ultimate Fighter®, where he competed under the direction of coach and former women’s bantamweight champion “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey. Grant was due to fight at UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON in 2013 but was forced to withdraw just days before the fight after sustaining an injury. Fans have been clamoring for the Englishman to return to the Octagon ever since.

Grant faces a young contender in Vera who, at the age of 23, has two UFC bouts under his belt including a win against Roman Salazar, which earned him a Performance of the Night bonus. “Chito” grew up in Ecuador and began training in MMA at 16, with one goal – to fight in the UFC.

Also set to compete at UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON are British fighters Michael “The Count” Bisping, who takes on Holland’s Gegard Mousasi, Birmingham’s Tom Breese, who faces Japan’s Keita Nakamura, and Mike Wilkinson who meets Makwan Amirkhani.

UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON will be available to watch live on UFC Fight Pass.

“I’m not here just to make up the numbers I’m here to win fights” – Adam Little


Adam Little is a 26 year old amateur fighter from Swindon, who at the weekend will be making his home town debut at local MMA promotion RAGED UK.

Adam who is currently 2-0 and trains out of SVT/Scorpion Gym in Swindon and works full time, decided to push his own career one step further and co-train in London at Titan gym at his own expense to get the best out of his training, it also happens to be the home of UFC fighter Brad Pickett and Joseph Duffy, along with BAMMA fighter Ashleigh Grimshaw.

I got to speak with Adam about his up coming fight this Saturday, where we talk about his boxing, wrestling, Brad Pickett, plus some other exciting stuff…..take a look!

Adam Little and Brad Picket

Adam Little and Brad Picket

It’s been a while since I have caught up with you, which was when I last saw you fight at ITC 8 against Wayne Alden where you won in a stunning 0.48 second TKO (GnP) victory.  Can you talk me through what you have been doing since then.

Since ITC 8 I felt that my boxing and takedown defence was lacking leading up to that fight so I went  away and worked on that area of my training.

I have  had a couple of white-collar boxing fights in which I have won, in turn I feel that my stand up game has improved massively.

I now feel confident in myself in the areas that I have been working on, especially my wrestling aspect of my game. I just feel like I have managed to evolve my whole fighting style adding in a lot more technique to my arsenal of weapons, to fully complement what I already had in my skillset.

Working full-time, training here in Swindon at Scorpion Gym/SVT and finally finding another home at Team Titan in London.  How do you find enough hours in the week to fit everything in?

It can be an extremely long week but I’m thankful that I have a good employer who lets me take time of when I need to, especially when I am in a fight camp. I also try to fit in my runs, cardio before work in the mornings so I can focus more on technique and actual fight training in the evening.

For you then, this ultimately is a long-term career plan?

For sure, I’m not here just to make up the numbers im here to win fights. I’m looking to get a few more wins under my belt and compete a lot more regularly.

You’re now 2-0 in your amateur MMA career.  When do you think it will be a good time for you to turn pro and when do you think that will happen, realistically?

If everything goes to plan and this time next year I’m still doing well then I will speak to my coaches and see where we are all at.

You’re facing Reece Pearson this Saturday, March 7th on RAGED UK at the MECA in your home town Swindon, which will also be your first time fighting in front of a home crowd. How are you feeling?

I’m feeling brilliant leading up to this fight. My training has been the best it ever has been.  I can’t wait to get in there and show everyone watching what I can do.

Adam Little Tear Up
Adam Little Tear Up

Being the home town fighter, on home soil, how much does it mean to you to have support behind you?

The support is brilliant. My other fights have been out-of-town so it obviously makes it a lot harder for people to attend. This time I will have all my friends and family there and I’m sure they will raise the roof for all of the homes fighters on the card.

Training out of Swindon’s Scorpion Gym and SVT, you get to train with a wealth of combined knowledge in Michael ‘Oz’ Osbourne and Dan Hughes, along with Saturday night’s two main event fighter’s Phil Wells and Alex Brunnen.  What is it like training with all that combined knowledge in your local gym?

It’s brilliant training with guys like that. They’re not just coaches they have been there and done it. I’m learning more with every session and I can not thank them enough, as well as the other lads for the time and effort they’ve put into my fight preparation.

You also stated Team Titan is part of your home aswell, which is also home to UFC fighter Brad Pickett, newly signed UFC fighter Joseph Duffy and BAMMA fighter Ashleigh Grimshaw amongst many other elite athletes to say the least; Is it quite fair to say that this training camp for your upcoming fight is going pretty well then?

Yes the training camp is going brilliantly. Everything has gone to plan and the lads in London are all at elite level. Even the amateurs down there are champions and as far as I’m concerned being on the mats with people like them is priceless.

Being mentally prepared for a fight I would say, is as paramount as much as the physical aspect of training, if not, more so.  How much do you believe in having a strong mental attitude for your fights?

I think that mental strength and toughness is a massive part of the fight game. With the lads that I train with at both SVT and Titan I don’t think you have any choice but to be mentally tough and ready. Oz and Dan wouldn’t have it any other way.

Do you know much about your opponent Reece Pearson or the challenges he could pose on the night?

I don’t know a great deal about Reece, I leave that up to my team to research him but I do know a lot about myself!

Where do you feel that you will be stronger in this fight and where do you feel it may end up?

I know that I will be stronger and better in any area where ever this fight goes, therefore I know that I will win this fight where ever it ends up!

Lastly, is there any sponsors or anyone you would like to thank?

I’d like to say a massive thanks to Oz and Dan down at Scorpion/SVT, as well as all of the other lads in the gym. Also want to say a big thank you to Brad Pickett for looking after me and making me feel so welcome down at Titan. Dave Pixton, Pat Reeves and Jaime Murkin at Gracie Barra Swindon.

Lastly I want to say a massive thank you to Picture House Tattoo Studio in Chippenham for giving me some great tattoos, Better Option and Platinum Security for helping me out with equipment.

Conor v Diego Face Off

Tonight, at the O2 in Dublin, the UFC returns for the first time in five years, for which we will get to see season 14 winner of TUF, Diego Brandao take on home town fellow Irish man ‘notorious’ Conor McGregor in an  epic battle of the Featherweights.

If you missed the highly entertaining, all important weigh-ins you are in luck, you can catch them all here; with the McGregor weigh-in, topping the scales [no pun intended, watch for yourselves] closely followed by Norman Parke, all hyped up and in Naoyuki Kotani’s face, Dana White definitely had his work cut out yesterday.

The fight that is going under the radar on this card I feel, although if you have been following Twitter, you would not have missed any ‘war of the words’ from either side is the Brad Picket v Ian McCall fight, although I’m pleased to say they both behaved themselves when it came to the actual weigh-ins.
