Brock Lesnar Cannot Fight Until January

Brock Lesnar has officially un-retired and re-entered the USADA testing pool on July 3rd, ending any rumors of his returning to the Octagon in 2018.

A USADA spokesperson confirmed to MMA Fighting, tat Lesnar’s suspension has continued, keeping him out of fighting until January 8th.

“After receiving notice of his intent to compete in the UFC, USADA re-entered Brock Lesnar to the testing pool on July 3,” the USADA statement read. “With six months and four days remaining on his period of ineligibility, Lesnar will be able to compete on or after January 8, 2019, should he remain in compliance with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy.”

Lesnar’s suspension stems from testing positive for the banned substance clomiphene multiple times for his UFC 200 fight with Mark Hunt. Lesnar defeated Hunt in that 2016 fight, but it was later overturned to a no contest.
