8. Good News For Brock Lesnar Regarding His UFC Suspension
Brock Lesnar will now receive a shorter ban in UFC from USADA. Lesnar won’t be getting the usual 2 year ban, but a maximum of 1 year suspension. Below is what MMA Fighting posted regarding this:
The reason for the shorter suspension is because the banned substances the pair tested positive for — Hydroxy-clomiphene, an anti-estrogenic agent, as well the Letrozole metabolite, an aromatase inhibitor, which was only found in Jones’ system — 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.”
In the above text, the fighters being referred to are Brock Lesnar and Jon Jones (who was pulled from the UFC 200 main event).
