As we noted earlier Brock Lesnar is facing temporary suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission on Tuesday due to his pair of UFC 200 failed USADA drug tests.
Brock Lesnar tested positive for Clomiphene in both failures, which is an estrogen blocker often used to stimulate natural testosterone production, and its metabolite, hydro-clomiphene.
Earlier it was believed that Lesnar would be facing a suspension for 2 years but as of now the current reports suggest that Lesnar might get a maximum suspension of one-year as 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.”
Brock Lesnar will be having a formal hearing session at some point of time in the near future where Lesnar might face a suspension and even fines if the situation is too worse for Lesnar his win over Hunt might be overturned.
