Mark Hunt says he wants Brock Lesnar's UFC 200 purse


In response to Hunt's claim, Lesnar took a direct approach.

Usada, the UFC and Lesnar declined to specify the substance in question, but Lesnar told The Associated Press: "We will get to the bottom of this".

The MMA world is buzzing about the news that broke on Friday afternoon about former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar potentially violating USADA's anti-doping policy.

The AP also notes that they obtained copies of three letters from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to Lesnar, letting him know that he had passed tests on three samples submitted over a nine-day period in mid-June, mere days before the sample with the potential violation was collected.

It should be noted that the UFC used its waiver to allow Lesnar re-sign with the UFC without a 4-month advance testing if a fighter decides to join the organization, the UFC pointed that given the situation that Lesnar wanted to fight "on the fly" and that is nearly impossible without compromising the event itself, as a result UFC used the waiver. I think that Hunt deserves the check considering the fact that Lesnar had to cheat to win.

"The cheaters get a slap on the wrist and walk off", Hunt said. The fighter tested positive just days before his fight in UFC 200 with Mark Hunt.

Hunt told Fox Sports Australia before their fight that he believed Lesnar was "juiced to the gills".

Fighters are usually subjected to four months of drug testing before their bout if they are returning from retirement.

USADA, which administers the UFC's doping policy, received Lesnar's test results Thursday evening from the WADA-accredited laboratory at UCLA.

When asked about performance-enhancing drugs in the weeks before his comeback fight, Lesnar memorably said: "I'm a white boy and I'm jacked".

Interim light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was also flagged for a doping violation for a test taken on June 16, and because the results of his test were available before UFC 200, he was taken off the card.

Lesnar, who turned 39 this week, has been rigorously drug-tested since announcing his return to UFC competition last month.
