UFC London: Brad Scott Reports He’s $2,600 in The Hole After Bout Cancellation
By FCF Staff
After having his UFC London bout cancelled last minute, Brad Scott’s reporting he’s lost $2,600 on the fight, even though the UFC’s reportedly agreed to pay him half of his show money.
Scott was scheduled to fight Jack Marshman at yesterday’s event, but the latter encountered issues while cutting weight, and was forced to withdraw. The UFC is going to pay Scott half of his show money ($10,000) and reportedly will try to book him for a quick, turnaround bout, but the middleweight’s still out money (quotes via MMA Junkie):
“Just going over there (to the U.S.) – not paying for the training and all of that – is £5,000 (roughly $7,000 USD) for the food, the accommodation and the flights. Then I have to give my training camp 10%. I have to give my manager money. Then I have to pay my boxing coaches the fees for all the one-on-one training I get.
“I’ve actually ended up £2,000 in debt. That’s $2,600. That’s how much I’ve been left in debt from this fight. Now I’ve got to go and find a job to make up the shortfall and help make ends meet before I can fight again.”
Scott (11-5) has fought 7 times in the Octagon to date, and has gone 3-4.
