He recently pulled out of an MMA fight with Stephen Bear, with the arena already confirming there will be no ticket refunds.

They were due to clash at Newcastle's Utilita Arena this Saturday, but Scotty quit due to "unforeseen circumstances".

Public documents show the petition in regards to his own bankruptcy was filed last year before confirmed on March 19.

Bankruptcy restrictions are usually discharged after a year. However, an Insolvency Service official confirmed this would not be the case for Scotty T.

A spokesman said: "Scott Timlin did not fully co-operate with the bankruptcy proceedings and so his discharge has been suspended indefinitely until such time as he does."

The notice states Scotty has recently lived at an apartment in Waterloo Street, Newcastle, as well as on Moor Lane, a posh street in Ponteland, Northumberland.
