Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar today was given a temporary suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission stemming from a pair of failed drug tests in connection with his UFC 200 return to the promotion.
Lesnar was given a temporary suspension by the commission pending a full hearing, a date for which has yet to be set. Lesnar tested positive for the estrogen blocker clomiphene and its metabolite, hydroxy-clomiphene, the commission revealed.
Lesnar failed an out-of-competition test conducted by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, the UFC’s anti-doping partner, in connection with UFC 200, which took place July 9 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. He also failed a fight-night text. Lesnar and Jones tested positive for the estrogen blocker clomiphene, and Jones also tested positive for another estrogen blocker, letrozole.
