UFC has released a statement saying WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar may have violated their Anti-Doping Policy and now the matter is under review by the USADA.
According to a statement on UFC.com, “The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Brock Lesnar of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on June 28, 2016.”
Brock made his return to UFC on Sunday and defeated Mark Hunt — who accused the wrestler before the fight of being “juiced to the gills.”
UFC adds, “USADA received the testing results from the June 28, 2016 sample collection from the WADA-accredited UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory on the evening of July 14, 2016. USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case.”
The company notes that before any sanctions are imposed there will be a thorough review process.
We reached out to WWE with multiple questions. All they would say is, “Brock Lesnar has not performed for WWE since WrestleMania and is not scheduled to return until Sunday, August 21.”
