News: Bradley Scott handed two year suspension by USADA

The UFC’s anti doping partner, USADA, confirmed this afternoon that they have handed Bradley Scott (11-6-0) a two year suspension stemming from a positive test earlier this year.

The British welterweight tested positive for benzoylecgonine, a metabolite of cocaine, following an in competition urine test taken on 27th May at UFC Liverpool where he earned a split decision loss against Carlo Pedersoli.

In their statement, USADA confirmed that they weren’t satisfied with the evidence Scott provided and as such, he will receive the “standard sanction for a first offense”.

“USADA conducted a thorough investigation into Scott’s case and determined Scott had not provided verifiable evidence regarding the circumstances that led to his positive test. Scott’s two-year period of ineligibility, the standard sanction for a first offense involving a non-Specified Substance, began on July 3, 2018, the date his provisional suspension was imposed.”

The suspension will force 29-year-old Scott out of action until 3rd July 2020.
