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.

UFC® RETURNS TO LONDON: MICHAEL BISPING vs. GEGARD MOUSASI


London, UK – UFC® today announced the first three bouts to feature on the UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON card, the organisation’s eagerly awaited return to the capital after a two year absence.

Bisping.jpgNo. 7 middleweight Michael Bisping (27-7, fighting out of Orange County, CA, USA) will return to fight on home soil for the first time since 2010 as he takes on No.8 Gegard Mousasi (37-6 -2, fighting our of Leiden, Holland) at the O2 Arena on February 27.

 

Bisping’s last fight at the iconic O2 Arena saw him walk away not only with a victory but also the Fight of the Night bonus for his performance. “The Count” will be looking for history to repeat itself in London this February. Standing in his way is former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi who will be no easy competitor with notable wins over Dan Henderson and Costas Philippou. One thing that can be guaranteed is there will be fireworks when these two strikers collide.

 

Two rising UFC talents will also battle inside the Octagon® as England’s Mike Wilkinson (9-1, fighting out of Manchester, England) takes on Finland’s Makwan Amirkhani (12-2, fighting out of Stockholm, Sweden).

 

Wilkinson last defeated Niklas Backstrom in devastating fashion within 2 minutes of the first round, earning him the Performance of the Night bonus, before injury forced him out of competition for over a year. Amirkhani also likes to keep his battles short, ending both his UFC victories in the first round.  A win for either athlete will certainly put the featherweight division on notice and show Europe continues to be a hotbed of emerging talent.

 

Tenacious warrior Norman Parke (22-4-1 fighting out of Bushmills, Northern Ireland) will take on a tough test in Russian Rustam Khabilov (17-3, fighting out of Albuquerque, New Mexico). Following a win in Dublin last month over Reza Madadi, Parke will be looking to put on a show stopping performance and climb the lightweight ladder while Khabilov hopes to prove he remains a force at 155 pounds.

 

Tickets for UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON go on sale Friday, December 4 at 12 p.m. GMT and are priced at £40, £50, £75, £100, £125 and £150 (prices do not include any applicable service charges and handling fees).

UFC Fight Night Manila Results: Frankie Edgar Has the ‘Answer’ & defeats Urijah Faber

For everything that a fight should be and a fighter, competitor for whom has always carried himself with such grace, Mark Munoz closed his fighting career on a clear, winning, dominant performance over the UK’s Luke Barnatt in what can only be defined as ‘OUTSTANDING’.


The UFC came live from Manila today, where it certainly did not disappoint and had a very emotional farewell to one of the sports most beloved fighters after winning his retirement fight.

In the main event Frankie Edgar literally answered everyone’s ‘answers’ in which he won every single round on the judges scorecards to clearly win over a tough opponent in ‘The california Kid’ Urijah Faber.

The co-main event went as much predicted (in my opinion) ,again, the judges scored every single round to Gegard Mousasi, for which he was tasked with the not so easy Costas Philippou.
