UFC Announces Brock Lesnar Failed In-Competition Test as Well
By FCF Staff
Late last week the UFC announced that Brock Lesnar failed an out-of-competition test, and today the promotion reported the heavyweight’s been flagged for an in-competition test as well.
On Tuesday, the UFC posted the following statement on its official website:
“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.”
The substance Lesnar has allegedly tested positive for has not been disclosed yet. The pro-wrestling star, who decisioned Mark Hunt at UFC 200, July 9th, said “we will get to the bottom of this”, after news of his first failed test surfaced.
