Bradley "Brad" Scott (born 22 June 1989) is an English mixed martial artist currently competing in the Welterweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. A professional competitor since 2009, he has also competed for Cage Warriors and was a contestant The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes.
Mixed martial arts career
Scott started his MMA career in 2007 training to become fit and in shape to be a part of the Royal Marines. However, Scott began taking the sport more seriously, even taking a semi-professional fight in his first year of training. Scott lost his only semi-pro fight via submission. Nearly a year and a half later, Scott made his professional debut against Tom Thorneycroft. Scott won the fight via first-round knockout.
In September 2009 Scott won his second pro fight against Steve Obe, again via knockout. One month later Scott had his first professional loss against Eugene Fadiora, after Scott submitted via strikes. Scott went on a 6-0 run after his first loss, winning all six fights via stoppage (3 submissions, 3 knockouts).
The Ultimate Fighter
In late 2012, Scott signed to be a competitor on The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes - a regional version of the Ultimate Fighter series, which pitted Australian fighters against British fighters. In his first fight on the show, Scott fought Australian, Xavier Lucas. After a close fight, Scott defeated Lucas via unanimous decision.
For the semi-final rounds Scott was then matched against Australian, Benny Alloway. After three grueling rounds Scott won the fight via split decision. The fight was also awarded "Fight of the Season" by the UFC fans, and both fighters were awarded a $25,000 paycheck.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Scott made his promotional debut on 15 December 2012 at UFC on FX 6 which was also known as "The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes Finale". He would fight Robert Whittaker to determine the welterweight winner of The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes. Scott lost the fight via unanimous decision.
Scott was expected to face Jack Marshman on 17 March 2018 at UFC Fight Night 127. However, Marshman was removed from the card two days before the event for medical issues surrounding his weight cut and his fight with Scott was scrapped.
Scott was scheduled to face Salim Touahir on 27 May 2018 at UFC Fight Night 130. However, Touahri pulled out of the fight in mid-May citing a knee injury. He was replaced by promotional newcomer Carlo Pedersoli Jr.. Scott lost the fight via split decision.
On July 3, 2018, UFC was notified by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) Scott of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an in-competition sample collected on May 27, 2018. On October 16, 2018, it was reported that Scott tested positive for benzoylecgonine, a metabolite of cocaine and USADA handed down a two-year suspension for his violation.
