A TRIO of mixed martial arts (MMA) aces from the Hemsworth and South Elmsall area will enter the ring in a show at Doncaster Dome on Saturday.

Scott Askham, 23, will join fellow Hemsworth fighter Tommy Miller and South Elmsall’s Wayne Murray in showcasing their MMA talents.

Askham, who trains at Matrix MMA in Doncaster, will be looking to make it four wins from four since turning professional.

He’d hoped to have secured five bouts before the end of the year but the postponement of his last bout has left him eager to finish 2011 with a bang.

He faces Huddersfield-based Matthew Earnshaw at the Dome for his fourth pro’ fight.

“I know his coach and I know he likes his fighters to work a lot on their groundwork so I’ll have to prepare for that,” said Askham.

“I think he’s won one and lost one of his fights so far so I’ll have to be at my best to beat him.”

He continued: “I’ve been training well and I’m ready for the fight.”

Tickets for the event are priced at £30 each or £600 for a VIP table of ten. Anyone interested should contact Scott on 07584 250727.
