Scott Askham has signed a contract with the UFC. The unbeaten middleweight from England confirmed the news on Twitter himself recently.
“The news is finally out!!” Askham wrote. “It was always a dream to fight in the UFC! Now for new goals and dreams!! On a road to the top!!”
Askham (12-0) finished Max Nunes a few weeks ago in the third round, scoring his seventh knockout victory of his career. He also holds two submission wins and three decision victories.
In 2013, he defeated Jack Marshman via decision and also went 6-0 as an amateur before turning pro in 2010.
The UFC returns to Europe in October with a card set for Sweden.
