As noted, Brock Lesnar was issued a temporary suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission on Tuesday due to his pair of UFC 200 failed USADA drug tests. Lesnar tested positive for Clomiphene in both failures, which is an estrogen blocker often used to stimulate natural testosterone production, and its metabolite, hydroxy-clomiphene.
We had noted that Lesnar faced a two-year suspension from MMA competition due to the violations. MMAFighting.com reports that Lesnar and Jon Jones, who failed for the same substances as Lesnar, are only subject to a maximum suspension of one-year because the banned substances are considered "specified substances" under the World Anti-Doping Agency Code:
Per the WADA Code, "there is a greater likelihood that these (specified) substances could be susceptible to a credible non-doping explanation." When it comes to specified substances, the WADA Code recognizes that it is possible for a prohibited substance to enter an athlete's body inadvertently, "and therefore allow a tribunal more flexibility when making a sanctioning decision."
As noted, Lesnar's suspension is temporary pending a formal hearing at a future date which has yet to be announced. Lesnar could face other fines and suspensions from the Nevada Athletic Commission, as well as his victory over Hunt being overturned.
