Welcome back to The Crossfire.
The ban starts retroactively on July 15, 2016 which is the provisional suspension date by USADA. Lesnar was also sanctioned for one year by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) on Dec. 15, 2016.
Lesnar is required to “remain in the USADA registered testing pool and make themselves available for testing in order to receive credit for time served under his or her sanction. Furthermore, if an athlete retires during his or her period of ineligibility, the athlete’s sanction will be tolled until such time the athlete notifies USADA of his or her return from retirement and once again makes him or herself available for no-advance-notice, out-of-competition testing.”
“The Beast Incarnate” returned to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) shortly after the Hunt fight. As of his writing, he has not released an official comment.
