The United States Anti Doping Agency (USADA) was busier than usual last month. A large part of that was due to the return of “The Beast” Brock Lesnar at UFC 226.
According to the USADA website which was most recently updated on August 1, 2018, Lesnar has been visited by the organization a total of three times since officially throwing his name into the testing pool.
Lesnar is a former UFC heavyweight champion, and he is the current WWE Universal champ. Although still suspended by USADA, if Lesnar can keep passing his drug tests a return to the Octagon against heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier is a foregone conclusion.
If the first month of Lesnar’s eligibility has shown us anything, that is USADA isn’t playing any games in this go around with “The Beast”. The UFC brass and fans alike will be crossing their fingers in hopes of a Lesnar Cormier heavyweight title fight in early 2019.
