Brock Lesnar suspended, banned substance revealed

The Nevada State Athletic Commission issued a temporary suspension to former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar on Tuesday, stemming from his failed drug tests leading up to his UFC 200 bout against Mark Hunt.

Lesnar tested positive for the estrogen blocker hydroxy-clomiphene on two occasions.

The first drug test failure was from an out-of-competition drug test on June 28, prior to his UFC 200 appearance. The second positive test was from an in-competition test at the event.

Lesnar will now have to wait for a formal hearing from the NAC where he faces a two-year suspension from both the commission and USADA.

At UFC 200, Lesnar defeated Hunt via unanimous decision.

Since his victory inside of the Octagon, Lesnar has returned to the WWE ring where he made an appearance over the weekend with a brutal beatdown of Randy Orton at SummerSlam. Whether he ever returns to mixed martial arts remains to be seen, but he did leave the door open.

That decision will likely come down to the severity of Lesnar’s punishment when the formal hearing is held.
