UFC Releases Statement, Brock Lesnar Also Failed In-Competition Test

Brock Lesnar

The UFC has announced that Brock Lesnar has failed another test, following word last week that the pro-wrestling star’s been notified of a potential anti-doping violation.

Several days after Lesnar earned a unanimous decision win over Mark Hunt at UFC 200, it was announced that the heavyweight has failed an out-of-competition test, leading up to the July 9th fight. The substance has not been disclosed.

On Tuesday, however, it’s been revealed Lesnar has also failed an in-competition test as well. The UFC recently posted the following statement:

“The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Brock Lesnar that his in-competition sample collection from July 9, 2016, at UFC 200, has tested positive for the same substance as his previously announced out-of-competition collection on June 28, 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 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.”

So far, the only thing Lesnar has stated publicly about the USADA flags, is “we will get to the bottom of this.”
