Wiltshire Times: Melksham's Brad Scott Melksham's Brad Scott

MELKSHAM scrapper Brad Scott is looking forward to his next fight at London’s O2 Arena next month.

Scott, 24, takes part in UFC Fight Night on March 8 where he will face Brazil’s Claudio Henrique da Silva, 31.

Scott, nicknamed ‘Bear’, claimed a win against Michael Kuiper via a round one submission in October, and is looking to add to his total of 10 UFC victories.

He said: “I’m very excited to be part of the card for the London event. I’m feeling confident after my win against Michael Kuiper in October, and since then I have been training well.

“Da Silva will be a tough opponent but I am feeling well-prepared and I can’t wait to get going now. To perform at the O2 Arena in front of such a huge crowd is something I’m really looking forward to.”

The evening is headlined by a light heavyweight bout between title contender Alexander Gustafsson and London’s Jimi Manuwa.
