Brock Lesnar has failed a second drug test, this one having taken place at UFC 200.
According to a statement released by the UFC, the test results were the same as the out-of-competition test he's already been flagged for.
“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. 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. Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward."
Lesnar made $2.5 million for his win over Mark Hunt at UFC 200. This was his first return to the octagon since 2011.
Lesnar released a statement to the Associate Press last week saying, "We will get to the bottom of this.” This statement was made before the second results became public. According to USADA Brock was tested a total of eight times.
His opponent has spoken out asking for half of Lesnar's purse or to be released from his UFC contract.
