In case you didn’t know
Brock Lesnar made a successful return to the octagon at UFC 200. Defeating Mark Hunt by unanimous decision in his first fight since 2011. Following the fight, Lesnar tested positive for clomiphene and its metabolite, 4-hydroxyclomiphene. In both an out-of-competition test prior to the bout and an in-competition test on the night of the fight. As a result of the failed tests Lesnar has received the maximum punishment available to the USADA.
The heart of the matter
Lesnar’s future in the octagon was up in the air, but this could well spell the end for the former champion. The suspension states that if a fighter retires whilst still suspended it will subsequently be frozen. Only continuing once the fighter has come out of retirement and re-entered the drug testing pool. At this point in his career, it is unlikely that Lesnar will be willing to deal with the red tape, and as such may be more like to hang up his gloves one final time.
