Ethan Miller/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Brock Lesnar has failed a second drug test, the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) notified the UFC Tuesday.
The UFC said in a statement that the USADA informed the 39-year-old wrestler his July 9 in-competition sample collection from UFC 200 tested positive for the same substance found in his out-of-competition collection on June 28.
“USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case,” the UFC statement said. “It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. The Nevada State Athletic Commission also retains jurisdiction over this matter as the sample collection was performed at UFC 200 in Las Vegas.”
The substance has not yet been identified, but sources told ESPN it’s clomiphene, the same substance UFC star Jon Jones tested positive for.
Lesnar was able to compete on July 9 at UFC 200, because neither of the test results were available at the time.
“Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward,” UFC said.
