Just when you thought it can’t get any worse, Brock Lesnar has failed his second drug test, this time an in-competition test administered by the USADA on July 9, the day of his fight against Mark Hunt at UFC 200.
“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.”
The LA Times is reporting that the substance that Lesnar popped for was clomiphene. Clomiphene is a PED and it enhances performance. It can increase testosterone by 50%. Jon Jones was also busted for the same drug and one day after Jones was pulled from the show, Lesnar called him “unprofessional” for what he did.
With a second failed test, it’s highly unlikely that Lesnar will step back in the Octagon as a 2 year ban hangs over his head.
Lesnar’s case still hasn’t gone in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission which will also announce a further ban.
