News broke yesterday that Brock Lesnar, who won his return MMA bout at UFC 200 against Mark Hunt, was advised of a potential USADA anti-doping policy violation. Lesnar finally spoke out on the matter to the Associated Press. His statement was a very simple one sentence one: “We will get to the bottom of this.”
The AP also noted in their story that they obtained paperwork from Lesnar’s previous tests leading into the fight. Lesnar had passed three previous tests leading into the fight. Those tests were conducted over a nine day period in mid June, days before the potential violation sample was collected.
WWE had also issued a statement regarding Lesnar’s possible violation that was quoted in the AP article. The company commented, “Brock Lesnar has not performed for WWE since WrestleMania and is not scheduled to return until Sunday, August 21.”
Bill Says: Obviously, this story could get a lot of legs and have a totally different effect on SummerSlam than intended. Talking with one of our readers last night via Facebook, WWE could get a lot of heat if they allow Lesnar to compete at SummerSlam if indeed this test result is positive and requires disciplinary action from UFC. We shall see where this all ends up.
