Brock Lesnar gets popped for PED's.
« on: July 19, 2016, 07:57:55 pm »

I don't know if we have any UFC fans in here, but this is a big story. Brock Lesnar came out of retirement to fight at UFC 200 against Mark Hunt. This was very surprising and posed some problems. USADA tests all fighters in the UFC now, and any fighter coming out of retirement is supposed to be tested for 4 months prior to the fight. However, using a clause in the anti-doping policy, the UFC gave Lesnar an exemption: http://www.foxsports.com/ufc/story/brock-lesnar-ufc-granted-exemption-from-early-drug-testing-ahead-of-ufc-200-060916

Not surprisingly, Lesnar's opponent, Mark Hunt, wasn't very happy about the exemption. He also speculated that Lesnar was "juiced to the gills." Lesnar responded by saying "I'm a jacked white boy, deal with it." http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/6/9/11894188/mark-hunt-on-brock-lesnar-i-think-hes-juiced-to-the-gills-ufc-200

Well, they fought at UFC 200 and Lesnar won in fairly dominant fashion. http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/7/10/12138442/ufc-200-results-brock-lesnar-returns-with-decision-win-over-mark-hunt

Then it turns out that Lesnar failed two drug tests, one out-of-competition and one in-competition: http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/7/19/12230962/brock-lesnar-also-failed-in-competition-drug-test-at-ufc-200

Not surprisingly, Mark Hunt is downright furious, as anyone would be after being donkey kong'd by a 285 pound roidhead. He's demanding half of Lesnar's $2.5 million purse (the largest in the UFC history) or he's walking from the UFC, as this is the third time in three years he's had to fight someone that was doping. That's shocking to me because Hunt just signed a 6-fight multi-million dollar deal back in April: http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/7/15/12204448/mark-hunt-asks-for-half-of-brock-lesnars-purse-or-release-from-ufc

It's interesting to see what's going to happen to Lesnar. Someone in his camp said that banned substance was something to do with an asthma inhaler but with the second failed drug test that seems unlikely. Definitely something to keep an eye on.

Sounds like ufc needs to do a better job of getting rid of their drug users.

Pro wrestling has changed. There are drug tests and wellness policies that, if violated, get them suspended. Much like UFC and boxing, they find ways to cheat.

This is why I have no interest whatsoever in UFC stuff.  I think it's got just too much cross pollenization with pro wrestling.  Everytime somebody argues with me about this and tells me I don't know what I'm talking about and am an idiot who is misinformed, a story like this breaks.  Happens like clockwork.

 Not calling you names, but there are very few legit UFC guys doing pro wrestling.

Did you know that prior to his WWE days Lesnar was a championship college wrestler and many of the best UFC fighters have come from the ranks of college wrestling. He's always been big, just look at some of his film from wrestling in high school, he's a monster.

Yes, I was aware of Lesnar's wrestling past.  And PR, I wasn't thinking about people when I referred to cross-pollenization; more the marketing and attitudes and in your face stuff. 

I respect you guys' opinions and your enjoyment of the sport.  I just don't share in it.

I doubt those policies are enforced too strictly. I'm pretty sure the owner of the organization is juiced out of his mind. There's not many 70 year olds as jacked as him.
