Brock Lesnar Flagged For Potential Anti-Doping Violation

Published

on

The UFC announced on Friday that they were notified by USADA about a potential anti-doping violation regarding Brock Lesnar. This would be from an out-of-competition sample collected on 6/28. This is obviously not the news Brock wanted coming off his big win over Mark Hunt at UFC 200 and, if the test results hold up, validates Hunt’s statements from before the fight about Lesnar being on PEDs.

It will be interesting to see how WWE handles this situation. WWE can suspend Lesnar in accordance with their wellness policy even though it was UFC’s independent administrator that conducted the test. They kind of have to do something otherwise they look bad for ignoring his drug failure. If they announce a 30-days suspension within the next few days then he can still make it to SummerSlam but it also means that he won’t be available for WWE TV’s to hype his match with Randy Orton. He is advertised for this Tuesday’s WWE Draft, so he would miss that as well.

WWE has yet to comment on the situation.

Here is UFC’s statement:

“The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Brock Lesnar of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on June 28, 2016. USADA received the testing results from the June 28, 2016 sample collection from the WADA-accredited UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory on the evening of July 14, 2016.

“USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. The Nevada State Athletic Commission also retains jurisdiction over this matter as the sample collection was performed in close proximity to Lesnar’s bout at UFC 200 in Las Vegas.

“Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.”
