Brock Lesnar Flagged for Possible Doping Violation

UFC announced that the United States Anti-Doping Agency has flagged WWE Superstar and former UFC Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar for a potential doping violation stemming from a sample collected June 28.

The organization stated that the Nevada State Athletic Commission retains final judgement over the result of Lesnar’s win over Mark Hunt at UFC 200, as though it was an out of competition sample, it did come the week of UFC 200. The decision to keep the win as such or overturn it to a no contest will be made when the USADA determines whether or not Lesnar did indeed test positive for a banned substance.

It must be noted that Lesnar was tested multiple times in the three weeks prior to the fight, and this particular test that was flagged was either the sixth or seventh test, according to Dave Meltzer.

His opponent Mark Hunt is also making news stemming from the test, as Hunt told MMAFighting.com after the Lesnar news broke:

“The cheaters get a slap on the wrist and walk off. What penalty or deterrent is there to make them think twice? Nothing.”

Hunt has issued an ultimatum to UFC: either he receive half of Lesnar’s 2.5 million dollar plus purse, or that UFC release him from his contract immediately.

Hunt had previously made headlines before the fight when he told FOX Sports Australia that he believed Lesnar to be “juiced to the gills” when it was announced that the four months of drug testing prior to a fight was waved for Lesnar.

More on the test results and any punishment Lesnar receives from UFC, USADA, or WWE as it becomes available.
