Brock Lesnar fails in-competition drug test

<p>Brock Lesnar&rsquo;s in-competition drug test sample from UFC 200 <a href="http://www.ufc.com/news/UFC-Statement-on-Brock-Lesnar-071916">has tested positive for banned substances.</a></p> <p>Lesnar, who beat Mark Hunt by unanimous decision earlier this month at UFC 200, was notified on July 15 of a potential violation of the Anti-Doping Policy due to a failed drug test as a result of an out-of-competition sample collected on June 28. His failed in-competition drug test tested positive for the same substance that the out-of-competition sample tested positive for.</p> <p>The banned substance that Lesnar tested positive for has not been publicly revealed. No disciplinary action or provisional suspension for Lesnar has been announced as of yet.</p> <p>After hearing the news of the former heavyweight champion&rsquo;s first failed drug test, <a href="http://www.maxim.com/entertainment/mark-hunt-wants-brock-lesnars-purse-2016-7">Mark Hunt demanded the UFC </a>pay him Lesnar&rsquo;s full $2.5 million purse or release him from his contract. The UFC has not yet responded to Hunt&rsquo;s ultimatum.</p> <p>The statement released by the UFC can be read below.</p> <blockquote> <p><em>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.&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> <br /> &ldquo;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.<br /> <br /> &ldquo;Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.</em></p> </blockquote>
