Following the news that Brock Lesnar is going to fight new heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier next, USADA has confirmed the pro-wrestling star has re-entered the organization’s drug testing pool.

According to a statement from USADA, Lesnar will be eligible to fight again on January 8th, 2019. The former heavyweight champ is still serving out the remainder of a one year suspension he received, after he tested positive for the banned substance clomiphene in 2016.

As a result of that test, Lesnar’s decision win over Mark Hunt in July, 2016, and UFC 200, was overturned to a no-contest.

Cormier secured the heavyweight title at UFC 226 this past weekend, by knocking out Stipe Miocic in the first round.
