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.
