UFC Star Brock Lesnar Flagged For Potential Failed Drugs Test

Brock Lesnar has been flagged by the United States Anti-Doping Agency for a potential doping violation.

The announcement comes a week after the 39-year-old beat Mark Hunt by decision at UFC 200 in Las Vegas, winning his first MMA fight in nearly five years.

When asked about performance-enhancing drugs in the weeks leading up to the fight, Lesnar said: "I'm a white boy and I'm jacked. Deal with it."

He released a statement on Friday vowing he "will get to the bottom of this."

According to reports, the star was allowed to be tested in a shorter window than usual because of the short time between his announced comeback in June and his fight in early July. Usually, athletes are required to submit to testing for four months before a UFC competition.

UFC also released a statement, saying: "The UFC organisation was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Brock Lesnar of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on June 28, 2016.

"USADA received the testing results from the June 28, 2016 sample collection from the WADA-accredited UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory on the evening of July 14, 2016."

Lesner, who is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion, is currently signed to WWE.

The entertainment company also released a statement, saying: "Brock Lesnar has not performed for WWE since WrestleMania and is not scheduled to return until Sunday, August 21."

I guess we'll just have to wait and see now what happens.
