Ex-UFC champion Lesnar handed one-year ban


Brock Lesnar has been slapped with a one-year ban by United States Anti-Doping Agency for failing two drug tests at UFC 200.

Lesnar tested positive for the estrogen blocker clomiphene in an out-of-competition drug test on June 28 as well as an in-competition test on the day of UFC 200.

But he tested positive for a prohibited substance on two separate occasions and has received a one-year retroactive ban from USADA.

Lesnar's sanction was announced Wednesday and will prevent him from competing until at least July 15. Lesnar was tested out-of-competition five times before a sample came back positive, but the result that ended up popping was not expedited by USADA and did not come back before the fight.

It can also work around small items less than 0.4 of an inch in diameter, and clean within a half inch of walls. The demo will take place at the Samsung booth on Level 1 of the Las Vegas Convention and World Trade Center.

In addition to handing out a one-year suspension, the NSAC fined Lesnar $250,000, or 10 percent of his disclosed $2.5 million purse, and overturned his win to a no-contest.

The UFC 200 bout was Lesnar's first in the UFC since retiring from the promotion in 2011 following a loss to Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 and struggles with diverticulitis.

Moving forward, Brock will have to remain in the USADA drug-testing pool until the suspension is complete. The UFC gave Lesnar an exemption from the four months of testing required of athletes returning from retirement by its anti-doping policy, because Lesnar was signed just a month out of the fight and he retired originally long before USADA and the UFC joined forces.

"In fact, what's happening is fighters appear to be taking advantage of the system and doping and either knowing or risking or banking on the fact that they're not going to get the maximum penalty imposed by the UFC".
