While Lesnar has been waived from the mandatory 4-months of random drug testing by USADA due to an exemption from the UFC, Lesnar is still being tested by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). The timeframe of testing before competition is what differs from Lesnar and the rest of the UFC roster.
With Lesnar under contract with the WWE and given a “one-off opportunity” to compete at UFC 200, his contract was signed just last week giving just over a month before the scheduled fight date of July 9. This is where UFC’s exemption comes into play.
Yahoo Sports’ Kevin Iole tweeted that Lesnar was tested by USADA on Wednesday with the results to be posted to their website next week.
