MELKSHAM'S Brad Scott was edged out on points by Brazilian Claudio Silva in their UFC Fight Night bout at London's O2 Arena on Saturday.
Silva was awarded the fight 29-28 by the judges as 'The Bear' Scott suffered his third professional defeat.
Scott was taken down early on in the fight and, although Scott got back to his feet, he suffered a poke in the eye and was then taken down again.
The Wiltshire fighter landed more strikes in the second round, his body work landing his London-based opponent in trouble.
Another poke to the eye saw Silva warned, but he feld on to win.
