Don’t look now, but it appears that one of the samples submitted by Brock Lesnar to USADA has gone missing and is no longer logged in the company data base.
The information comes courtesy of @dimspace, who noticed the discrepancy in USADA’s records.
Ive gone through @USADA_UFC 's xml with a fine toothcomb.
Only Lesnar's test numbers have dropped between 28/11 and 7/12, no other fighters affected
Sample is from 17/10 reporting period. 2 samples reported that week originally.
1 has vanished or been removed. pic.twitter.com/0IPIabXQMD

This isn’t the first time that Brock Lesnar has made headlines in conjunction with USADA.
The former UFC heavyweight champion, Lesnar, was granted a special testing exemption from USADA in order to compete against Mark Hunt at UFC 200.
However, Lesnar’s victory over Hunt was later changed to a no-contest, this after it was revealed that he had flunked a pre-fight drug test with USADA.
Mark Hunt has since filed a lawsuit against both the UFC and Brock Lesnar over the incident.
Lesnar is expected to make his return to the octagon in early 2019 against reigning UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.
March’s UFC 235 event in Las Vegas has been discussed as the potential landing spot for the heavyweight title fight.
Brock Lesnar, who is the current “Universal Champion” of WWE, is confident that he will be able to make quick work of “DC” when they square off next year.
