USADA has announced that Scott may have failed a post-fight drug test in line with the aforementioned UFC Fight Night Liverpool event.
The following statement on the matter was issued by the UFC:
“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.”
This is the first potential USADA violation for Scott and if the fighter is found guilty, could be facing a one year suspension from the organization.
There is no word at this time as to what illegal substance was found in Scott sample and the fighter has yet to comment on the violation.
