UFC Exec Shoots Down Report Brock Lesnar Has Returned to USADA Testing Pool
By FCF Staff
Following reports that Brock Lesnar has returned to USADA’s testing pool, the UFC Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance Jeff Novitzky, has said that’s not the case.
Recently reports surfaced that Lesnar had elected to re-enter the testing pool, prompting speculation that the former heavyweight champ is eyeing a return to the UFC. But, in a follow up report from MMA Junkie, Novitzky said Lesnar has not done so, and that in addition, there’s been no inquiries about him re-entering USADA’s testing regiment.
Lesnar was suspended for a year, following his bout with Mark Hunt last July, for testing positive for banned substances. Since the 40 year-old, pro-wrestling star informed the UFC he was retiring from fighting in February, however, his suspension was frozen at that juncture.
