UFC News: USADA Confirms Brock Lesnar Has Re-Entered Testing Pool

Brock Lesnar

While wrestling fans were tuned into New Japan Pro Wrestling’s G1 Special in San Francisco this past Saturday night, WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar made headlines when he showed up at UFC 226 in Las Vegas, confronting UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier. It had long been rumored that Brock was looking to get back into the ‘fight game’ and his appearance all but confirmed it, following speculation that there was interest in a bout against Jon ‘Bones’ Jones.

There were still hurdles preventing his return however, after he failed USADA drug testing prior to his last fight in 2016 at UFC 200. ‘The Beast Incarnate’ still had to re-enter the USADA testing pool and serve the roughly six months still remaining on his suspension, therefore when his next fight could be has been open to interpretation.

Today, the USADA has provided more details to MMAFighting on when Brock re-entered the testing pool and when he’ll be eligible to fight again:

“After receiving notice of his intent to compete in the UFC, USADA re-entered Brock Lesnar to the testing pool on July 3. With six months and four days remaining on his period of ineligibility, Lesnar will be able to compete on or after January 8, 2019, should he remain in compliance with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy.”

This confirms what UFC President Dana White had said following UFC 226, as well as Lesnar’s likely future opponent, Daniel Cormier (which you can check out here).

WWE News: WWE Network To Air Starrcade Special Next Sunday

Published

WWE Starrcade
Next weekend’s WWE Starrcade event will air on the WWE Network…sort of.

While the WWE Universe is focused on tonight’s NXT TakeOver: War Games II and tomorrow night’s Survivor Series, next Saturday the company will present its second Starrcade event from Cincinnati, Ohio.





After reviving the old NWA/WCW pay-per-view namesake for a special Live Event last year, WWE decided to move this year’s show outside of North Carolina. Yesterday, we noted how some changes were made to the card as the previously scheduled Steel Cage Match between Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair has been removed (see the full lineup here). At this time, Charlotte is still advertised to appear, however it’s now not known exactly in what capacity she will be used.

Additionally, many fans had hoped that this year’s Starrcade would be available on the WWE Network after missing out on last year’s and it looks like they will be getting their wish in some fashion. PWInsider was the first to report that the WWE Network schedule is listing Starrcade to air as a one-hour special next Sunday, the night after the event, at 8PM EST. Currently, there are no details on which matches from the event will air.





Which matches from Starrcade do you want to see air? Let us know on social media @theCHAIRSHOTcom and always remember to use the hashtag #UseYourHead!
