USADA notifies Brock Lesnar of another potential anti-doping violation

The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has been busy lately.

This time the agency notified UFC heavyweight Brock Lesnar of a potential violation with respect to an in-competition July 9th sample for UFC 200.

The substance identified was the same as another potential  sample of Lesnar’s.

The UFC released the following statement on its 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.”

Lesnar will have the opportunity to appear before the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) to state his case. He could be looking at a possible suspension if these results are confirmed.

The process continues.
