Bradley "Brad" Scott (born 22 June 1989) is an English mixed martial artist. A professional MMA competitor since 2009, Scott has made a name for himself fighting all over the country of England. He was a competitor on 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 UFC debut on 15 December 2012 at UFC on FX: Sotiropoulos vs. Pearson 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 faced promotional newcomer Cláudio Silva at UFC Fight Night 37. He lost the back-and-forth fight via unanimous decision.
