UFC Grants Brock Lesnar A Special Exemption on Drug Testing

Post by Kinosis on Wed Jun 08, 2016 5:44 pm

If you're a professional fighter coming out of retirement, you must notify the UFC and its drug-testing partner, the United States Anti-Doping Agency, four months in advance.

Unless, that is, the UFC says you don't.

That's what happened in the case of heavyweight Brock Lesnar, who returns to MMA competition on July 9 after more than four-and-a-half years away from the sport.

The WWE star's return was revealed on June 4, and according to an official UFC statement released to Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports, he made himself available for USADA drug testing on June 6. That shaves about three months off the typical drug-testing window for an un-retiring UFC athlete.

WTF?  So Lesnar gets to skip out on drug testing until 4 weeks before the event?  So even if they randomly test him, he knows it's in that 4 week time period.  Normally it's 4 months out from a fight.  Guess this is how they are getting around the WWE diet he has been on.  The UFC is corrupt as hell.


*Posted on sherdog as well and 90% of people are calling me an an idiot without explaining why it isn't fishy. They are just shilling away as usual.

On sherdog they are acting like it isn't fishy at all and no big deal because he will still get tested. Which was my whole point, that Lesnar KNOWS the test will be in that 4 week period.

It's even more fishy when they act like it all happened the day before, yet Lesnar has already had a team together, had been training for months and the promos were already filmed. It's obviously a loophole to avoid random steroid tests and let's him juice up to a few weeks before his fight.

Wow how much do they pump up pro zuffa agenda. No wonder this niche combat sport can get out of the one rules all mentality. Hopefully were heading to legitimacy and not relying on one league in comparison to the big picture in all this MMA media it's a joke. I should of shorten up my sentence that the media is sold out worse than fox fews.

If your name is Lesnar and you bring in crazy money for a PPV, the rules no longer apply.

they really kept it quiet didnt they

leads me to think they allowed him to juice to get back into shape then 4 weeks out he can pass any test he likes...

no wonder they were pissed at helwani
