Despite the UFC waiving the mandatory 4 month transitionary period for fighters coming out of retirement, during which they are subject to random USADA drug testing, USADA managed to test Brock Lesnar 6 times in 1 month leading up to his UFC 200 fight with Mark Hunt.

Saturday morning, USADA spokesman Ryan Madden revealed to Fox Sports that Lesnar had actually passed all of his other drug tests leading up to the event.

“With Mr. Lesnar having spoken publicly about the issue, I can confirm that he has been notified of a potential anti-doping policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on June 28, 2016.”

“I can also confirm that the results from his previous samples collected by USADA were all reported as negative. Although USADA will not be providing any further specifics of the case at this time, I can tell you that Mr. Lesnar — as with every athlete under the UFC anti-doping policy — will be provided full due process under the rules.”

Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
