Brock Lesnar fails a second drug test

Brock Lesnar has tested positive for a second time. His in-competition drugs test has tested positive for the same substance found in his out of competition test taken on the 28th June. This second test was taken 9th June, the same day as UFC 200 where Brock scored a unamious decision victory over Mark Hunt.

The LA Times report that the substance found in both tests was a fertility drug called clomiphene. This is also one of the substances found in the sample Jon Jones tested positive for.

The UFC have released a statement regarding his second failed test.

“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.”

Brock Lesnar is yet to comment on the findings.
