Brock Lesnar tested by USADA multiple times since put in testing program two weeks ago

Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar is set to return to the UFC Octagon once again at UFC 200 in July as he will take on the heavyweight knockout specialist Mark Hunt.

Lesnar’s return was questioned by many after it became known that he was given an exemption from the UFC for the standard four months of random drug testing done by the U.S. Anti-Doping Association (USADA). Lesnar is not totally exempt from USADA’s testing, but the time frame of his testing was shortened with his individual case.

The USADA website revealed that Lesnar has been tested five different times since being enrolled into USADA’s program two weeks ago when his contract with the UFC was signed.

UFC vice president of health and performance Jeff Novitzky affirmed with MMA Fighting on Monday that Lesnar was tested by USADA at least three different times.

“I’d expect there are even more to come as well before UFC 200,” Novitzky said.

Brock Lesnar’s test results have yet to be released.
