UFC Fighter Bradley Scott Suspended 2 Years After Testing Positive for Cocaine

UFC fighter Bradley Scott has received a two year suspension from USADA after testing positive for cocaine following his most recent fight inside the Octagon

British fighter Bradley Scott will be sidelined until 2020 after he received a two-year suspension from USADA on Tuesday after failing a drug test administered earlier this year.

USADA officials announced the news on Tuesday.

“Scott, 29, tested positive for benzoylecgonine, a metabolite of cocaine, as the result of a urine sample he provided in-competition on May 27, 2018, at Fight Night 130 in Liverpool, United Kingdom,” USADA officials wrote in a press release.

“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.”

As a result of the positive drug test, Scott was handed a full two-year suspension with his eligibility to return to action after July 3, 2020.

Scott suffered a loss in his last fight in Liverpool, which is where he was tested by USADA before later failing the test.

Scott has gone 1-3 in his past four fights with the UFC including back-to-back losses in his most recent performances.
