Although rumors of a return of Brock Lesnar to the octagon made him think he might be preparing to fight at the UFC event in November , which will be held at Madison Square Garden, there is a loose end.
Brock Lesnar was suspended for a year because he failed the anti-doping test , but instead of fulfilling all his suspension decided to withdraw from the MMA. The reason is because when a fighter stays active, the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) can appear at any time to collect samples, in addition to the fighters must inform USADA where they are at all times.
This is what we published last February :
“As is known, the sanction imposed on Lesnar was still valid for five months, and could not compete again without first announcing his return with that same lapse of time in advance and undergo the remaining tests. Considering the 39-year-old gladiator, this seems little more than impossible. “
Lesnar is left with five months of suspension , and effectively decided to re-enter the active fighters and enter the USADA test program, but his suspension will be fulfilled until December.
And when would Lesnar fight then?
According to Pro Wrestling Sheet , the beast has no plans to renew a contract with WWE next year. His current contract expires shortly after WrestleMania, and by then he wants to have the option of fighting for UFC.
Of course it could also be that the reason he wants to have that option is to negotiate an upcoming contract with WWE, which he did in the past, when he used the UFC as a lever to get more zeros on his WWE check .
