Dean Amasinger (born March 9, 1984) is an English professional mixed martial artist, who goes by the nickname "Renegade". He was a cast member of SpikeTV's The Ultimate Fighter: United States vs. United Kingdom, and reached the first round.[1]


Amasinger was a promising rugby player, but his career was cut short by injury.[2]He then began studying at Nottingham University, where he earned a degree in biochemistry.[3] There, he met Dan Hardy and Paul Daley, two leading British mixed martial artists, and joined Team Rough House. He made his professional debut against Wayne Murrie on December 9, 2006 at Cage Warriors - Enter The Rough House in Nottingham, and was knocked out early in the second round. The following year, he returned to the octagon, fighting David Faulkner at Enter The Rough House 5 on December 8, 2007. This time he won after his opponent was disqualified for an illegal heel hook.

After a disappointing first two fights, he won all three of his fights in 2008 and then tried out for The Ultimate Fighter: United States vs. United Kingdom in October of the same year. He made it on to the show and faced off against Alex Reid at the Wolfslair MMA Academy in the preliminary round. He eventually won by decision after three rounds. After this, he joined Team United Kingdom which was coached by Michael Bisping. He made it through to the welterweight division quarter-finals, where he was submitted by DaMarques Johnson in the first round.

His first fight after the Ultimate Fighter, against Scott Jansen, took place at Ultimate Challenge UK - Dynamite on on October 24, 2009 in London. Amasinger won the fight by submission in the first round. He then faced Maciej Gorski later that year (on December 11) at Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki 12 in Warsaw, Poland, which he again won by submission. On February 6, 2010, Amasinger fought for the Ultimate Challenge Welterweight Championship, against Alberto Mina, eventually losing due to strikes in the third round.
