WWE/MMA Rumours: Reason why Brock Lesnar was flagged by USADA revealed
Brock Lesnar beat Mark Hunt at UFC 200, turning in a performance that beggared disbelief by scoring a Unanimous Decision victory over a top 10 Heavyweight in the UFC after not being active in the sport for 5 years.
But when it was revealed that Lesnar was flagged for an out-of-competition sample collected on June 28th by USADA, many people associated with the sport, Mark Hunt foremost amongst them, have jumped the gun in condemning Lesnar and branding him as a cheat.
Lesnar had never before tested positive for any banned substances or PEDs in his UFC career, and all the other tests that were performed on him in the lead-up to UFC 200 came back clean as well.
This led to a notion that the ‘positive’ result was a discrepancy more than incriminating evidence;
Something lent further credence by a post unearthed from an online forum, courtesy of Lesnar’s teammate – who only identified himself as D2 – reports wrestlingnewssource.com.
“Brock suffers from what's called RAD, otherwise known as reactive airway disease. His doctor for years has prescribed him Advair Diskus (an inhaler), which helps him breathe during the late spring and summer months here in Minnesota when he has episodes.
This drug is classified as Beta-2 Agonists. So this is why he got popped by USADA. It's really just a formality though, because he should of been given a TUE just like people do who have ADHD and take Adderall that fight in the UFC, or other pain killers for injuries.
He passed the other 7 tests and was not using any GH or Anabolic agents of any kind which everyone is assuming.”
Brock Lesnar faces a potential ban and a fine from USADA if proven to be guilty.
