Reports: Brock Lesnar Tested Positive For Same Drug Jon Jones Did
MMA Junkie – Multiple media outlets reported Tuesday that former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar tested positive for clomiphene in two failed drug tests performed in connection with his UFC 200 co-headliner against Mark Hunt.
LATimes.com and ESPN.com cited officials with knowledge of the substance. A UFC official declined comment to MMAjunkie on the drug’s identity, citing confidentiality during the results-management process.
According to UFC anti-doping partner USADA, Lesnar failed a June 28 out-of-competition test as well as a fight-night test in connection with the July 9 pay-per-view event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Per the policies of the UFC and its anti-doping partner, USADA, the substance for which he tested positive was not disclosed, and won’t be until the fighter reveals it or the results-management process has concluded.
Following the first test failure, Lesnar (5-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) told the Associated Press, “We will get to the bottom of this.”
It’s raining cats and dogs out there…and when I say cats and dogs I really mean PED’s and estrogen blockers. When I hear of guys getting busted for the same drugs it makes me wonder if the test wasn’t as good before and missed these kinds of agents in the blood. Maybe USADA got better and Lesnar and Jones are living proof that eventually cheaters get caught. Imagine if Brock didn’t take estrogen blockers and walked around as a huge 265 pound beast with boobs. He would really clean up the women’s division in the WWE. I am not sure how he would do in MMA though. I think Cyborg would still give him a run for his money!!!
