Ferrozo returned to the UFC seven months later at UFC 11, defeating Sam Fulton in an alternate bout prior to the start of the pay-per-view broadcast. By doing so, Ferrozzo secured a spot as an alternate on the card, which meant that if a fighter on the main card was unable to continue to the next round, Ferrozzo would be used as a substitute. He ended up replacing the man who defeated him at UFC 8, Jerry Bohlander, who was removed from the tournament due to injury. Ferrozzo stepped in and replaced him against Tank Abbott in the semi-finals. Ferrozzo was able to score a unanimous decision victory over Abbott to advance to the final round against the reigning UFC Champion Mark Coleman. However, Ferrozzo was unable to continue after defeating Abbott due to fatigue as well as a cut sustained in his previous bout. Coleman was declared the UFC 11 champion by way of forfeit.
Ferrozzo's last UFC appearance came at UFC 12 in 1997, participating in the heavyweight tournament. He defeated Jim Mullen in his first match of the night before losing to Vitor Belfort in the heavyweight finals. Following the loss to Belfort, Ferrozzo retired from MMA competition. Scott came out of retirement and lost a backyard match to Tank Abbott that went eighteen minutes. Much of the match was contested with Tank mounting and back mounting Ferrozzo, but unable to do major damage.
