Both British main event fighters - Askham and Barnatt - have had illustrious careers with their paths intertwining, overlapping but never meeting, until now.

Having both achieved titles in promotions domestically and abroad and with them both having fought in the UFC prior to joining ACB the question has often been asked as to who would take the win if these monster middleweights ever did collide in the cage.

That is a question that will have an answer come September 23.

The war of words has been intense on the run up to this fight and when they met in the cage at ACB 65 to announce this fight back in July those words almost came to blows as the intensity and genuine dislike for one another was almost too much for the two fighters to contain.

What became clear on that night, and what is on the line on September 23, is much more than just victory and another notch on one of their prolific records.

This is about cementing their place as one of the greatest British middleweights of their generation.

One will leave with their legacy intact and the bragging rights that come with it while the other will leave not just with the burden of defeat but with the shadow of their opponent that will loom over them and their careers from that day forward.


Askham and Barnatt have both flown the flag for the country in the middleweight division at home and abroad but this is the first time they have met and fans have been calling for the fight to settle sll bragging rights.

Some thought the clash was set to be filed in the 'what if' section of UK MMA after Barnatt made the move to Light-Heavyweight for his most recent fight against Swedish Man Mountain Max Nunes.

But after the Cambridge fighter dispatched Nunes in under a round he took to the mic to call out Askham.

Askham says: "He doesn't know what he's talking about! He's the one who's been knocked out twice and I've never been finished. This fight has been a long time coming and I'm coming to take his head clean off!'

Barnatt, the higher ranked fighter of the two, said 'The fight's not the hard part, the weight cut is the toughest part of me fighting at middleweight but I will make that weight one more time, knock him out and then get back to chasing down that light-heavyweight belt'.

A full night of MMA fights will fill the undercard.
