Brock Lesnar was granted extra time by the NSAC for his recent performance-enhancing drug (PED) test failures according to MMAJunkie.com. The NSAC had suspended Lesnar soon after tests came back positive both before and after his bout with Mark Hunt at UFC 200 back in July.
USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency ) failed to inform the promotion prior to Lesnar fighting. They stated something to the extent of expedited shipping costs were too expensive to the frustration of everyone especially his opponent Mark Hunt. Lesnar’s failure revolved around anti-estrogen blockers and following Anderson Silva’s defense of contaminated/tainted supplements. Sports lawyer Howard Jacobs said they needed “more time to do the testing of the supplements,” and Jacobs is mentioned as “the foremost attorney defending clients against charges stemming from positive anti-doping tests”.
USADA has the following on their website:
“It is possible that an athlete can follow every one of these steps and still test positive for a prohibited substance or fall victim to negative health effects. The only way for an athlete to completely eliminate the risks associated with dietary supplements is to avoid dietary supplement use all together.”
Lesnar is currently back in WWE and no plans if any for any MMA return have been made public by Lesnar or his team.
