Back in June, USADA randomly drug tested Brock Lesnar ahead of his UFC 200 fight with Mark Hunt.

Lesnar failed the test, however USADA didn’t announce it until after Lesnar had already defeated Hunt in the co-main event of UFC 200. That didn’t sit too well with Hunt, who sustained injuries while fighting fighters using PEDs in the past.

Hunt asked the UFC for 50% of Brock Lesnar’s massive $2.5 million purse, or to be released from his UFC contract. Saturday morning, Hunt changed his tune, asking the UFC for 100% of Lesnar’s purse:

The UFC caught quite a bit of criticism pre-fight for waiving the mandatory 4 month transitionary period when a fighter comes out of retirement and is subject to USADA testing.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
