Brock Lesnar to be drug tested by USADA

Anti Doping Agency still interested in Brock Lesnar


The United States Anti Doping Agency will continue to test WWE Wrestler Brock Lesnar until he officially announces that he is once again retired from competitive MMA fighting.

Lesnar, who returned to the Octogon after almost 5 years away on July 9th in at UFC 200, is currently considered an active member of the UFC roster and thus falls under the USADA jurisdiction, as well as the UFC anti doping policy. 

Lesnar is also an active member of the WWE and is subject to their wellness policy, although how the process and banned substances overlap is unknown.

“To my knowledge, Brock Lesnar has not notified USADA of his retirement from the UFC,” USADA Ryan Madden said. “Therefore, he remains subject to USADA testing and the UFC anti-doping policy.”

The UFC already attracted some controversy after they waived the four month notice period for fighters coming out of retirement that allows combatants to be placed back into the USADA pool of testing. While Lesnar’s next publicised bout is back in the WWE at Summerslam against Randy Orton he left the door open to another UFC bout in his post-fight press conference after a dominant unanimous decision win against Mark Hunt.
