USADA confirmed 39-year-old Lesnar tested positive for clomiphene and its metabolite, 4-hydroxyclomiphene during an out-of-competition urine test on June 28 and an in-competition urine test on July 9 at UFC 200. One year was the maximum sanction Lesnar was going to receive under the UFC's anti-doping policy due to the nature of the drug.
Per the official announcement from USADA, any athlete under a USADA suspension stays in the organization's drug-testing pool through the end of the suspension. The UFC gave Lesnar an exemption from the four months of testing required of athletes returning from retirement by its anti-doping policy, because Lesnar was signed just a month out of the fight and he retired originally long before USADA and the UFC joined forces. The WWE superstar test positive for the estrogen blocker clomiphene in a further sample that was taken after the fight. USADA is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental agency whose sole mission is to preserve the integrity of competition, inspire true sport, and protect the rights of clean athletes.
