Brock Lesnar’s USADA woes have doubled.

After being flagged last week by the USADA for a potential drug violation during an out of competition testing conducted on June 28, the WWE star was informed the the drug agency on Tuesday that he also failed his in competition drug testing done on fight night at UFC 200. According to the report, Lesnar tested positive for the same substance that came out in the June 28 results:

Same As Bones

The substance that Lesnar tested positive for has not been publicly disclosed but sources are saying that Lesnar was flagged for Clomiphene, the same Estrogen blocker that Jon Jones was earlier tested positive for. Jones was supposed to fight Daniel Cormier in the main event of UFC 200 but was pulled out two days before the event when his out of competition drug test results arrived. In the case of Lesnar, the results of his June 28 tests came after July 9, hence he was allowed to fight at UFC 200.

Staring At A Two Year Ban

Lesnar ended a five year retirement to return at UFC 200. He defeated Mark Hunt convincingly in a three round affair. But even before experts could link him to a title shot with whoever wins at UFC 203, Lesnar’s hopes were dashed when news of his failed drug test came to light last week. With the violation, Lesnar stands to be suspended for to years, making it difficult for the 38 year old to make another run at the title. Lesnar is expected to return to the WWE next month, where he is scheduled to face Randy Orton is the organization’s annual Summer Slam Event. In his only official comments since the test results came out, Lesnar said “he will get to the bottom of this.”

UFC’s Biggest Draw Ever

Considered as the UFC’s biggest PPV Draw ever, Lesnar’s appearance at UFC 200 was a shot in the arm even though it was supposed to be just a one fight deal. UFC 200 lost its main event when the company pulled out Conor Mcgregor after the Irishman failed to attend a press conference. The main event was changed to Jones-Cormier but that too was shelved. Finally, the womens’ bantamweight title bout was elevated to headliner status while Lesnar’s bout with Hunt was the co-main event. Lesnar made an all-time high $2.5M in guaranteed purse for that bout.
