UFC welterweight Bradley Scott is facing a USADA anti-doping violation stemming from an in-competition drug collected on May 27.
The Las Vegas-based promotion released a statement regarding Bradley’s status on Tuesday. The full statement is as follows:
The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed athlete Bradley Scott of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an in-competition sample collected on May 27, 2018.
USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Bradley Scott. Under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair legal process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.”
Bradley’s positive test occurred in conjunction with UFC Fight Night 130, where he lost a split decision to Carlo Pedersoli Jr. in Liverpool, England. The 29-year-old Englishman has lost three of his last four Octagon appearances and is 3-4 during his promotional tenure overall. “Bear” owns an 11-6 professional mark.
