USADA Notified UFC That Brock Lesnar Failed a 2nd Drug Test

UFC 200: Tate v Nunes

It gets worse and worse for WWE’s Brock Lesnar.

Last week, the UFC announced  that Brock Lesnar had been flagged by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for a potential violation stemming from a pre-UFC 200 test—which they discovered 5 days after his fight with Mark Hunt. Because of that potential violation, Lesnar was in danger of losing a portion of his $2.5 million purse.

On Tuesday, USADA notified the UFC of a 2nd failed drug test by Brock Lesnar just before his fight at UFC 200 on July 9th in Las Vegas.

The substance that Lesnar tested positive for hasn’t been officially identified, but a source told ESPN that the flagged substance is clomiphene, the same anti-estrogen blocker that Jon Jones tested positive for.

Neither of those test results were available to the promotion on July 9, which is how Lesnar (6-3) was still able to fight Mark Hunt at T-Mobile Arena. Lesnar won the fight via unanimous decision.”

I think it’s safe to say Brock Lesnar won’t be back on any UFC cards anytime soon.
