Brock Lesnar flagged for potential violation of Anti-Doping Policy

<p>The UFC 200 drama has not yet ended.</p> <p>According to a <a href="http://www.ufc.com/news/UFC-Statement-on-Brock-Lesnar-071516">statement released by the UFC</a> on Friday evening, former UFC heavyweight champion and WWE superstar&nbsp;Brock Lesnar was notified of a potential violation of the Anti-Doping Policy after results came back from an out-of-competition sample collection. The statement notes that the sample was collected on June 28 and test results came back on July 14, five days after UFC 200. The tests were conducted&nbsp;by the WADA-accredited UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory.</p> <p>Lesnar beat #8 ranked Mark Hunt via unanimous decision at UFC 200 in his return to MMA after five years away from the sport. In the two weeks leading up to the bout, Lesnar was randomly tested a total of five times, <a href="http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/6/20/11980824/brock-lesnar-tested-by-usada-five-times-in-two-weeks">according to a report by MMAFighting.com.</a></p> <p>The full statement issued 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 of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on June 28, 2016. 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.<br /> <br /> 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 in close proximity to Lesnar&rsquo;s bout at UFC 200 in Las Vegas.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> 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>
