UFC 200 was almost a week ago and it is still being talked about. There are reports circulating that another fighter is having a potential problem facing them.
In the week leading up to the historic card in Las Vegas, Jon Jones was removed from the card around 48 hours prior to event occurring due to a anti-doping violation. After that due to injuries Miesha Tate suffered to Amanda Nunes, she was medically suspended for a minimum of two months. Well, it seems that another fighter is having some potential problems facing him.
The UFC released a statement on Friday night that Brock Lesnar, who made his return to the octagon at UFC 200 after being away for 5 years, that they were notified that Brock Lesnar was being hit with an anti-doping violation. The potential violation comes from the failure of a drug test on June 28, according to the statement.
Mike Johnston of Sportsnet had the statement through his twitter account. According to the statement, WADA- accredited UCLA Olympic Analytical Lab sent the USADA the test results on the evening of July 14.” Here is the entire statement the UFC had published on Friday evening in regards to the matter:
In accordance to the USADA and its policy, they did not release the name of the substance that Brock Lesnar tested positive for.
The weeks leading up to UFC 200, it was reported that UFC would go ahead and waive the four-months notice an athlete is required to do prior to coming out of retirement. The other thought that UFC had been since Brock Lesnar is under contract by WWE and they test their superstars regularly, they figured it was not necessary to do more testing.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the upcoming weeks and what if anything is done to Brock Lesnar’s future in UFC and his win against Mark Hunt.
