Jon Jones And Brock Lesnar Facing Shorter USADA Suspensions

Shane vs. Lesnar in the works

Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting reported the news, citing United States Anti-Doping Agency's policy.

Webster native and former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar was temporarily suspended Tuesday by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, pending a full hearing.

UFC 200 was two months ago and saw Brock Lesnar make his return to the octagon as he went up against Mark Hunt.

The UFC has said the 39-year-old Lesnar tested positive for the same banned substance both times.

Lesnar tested positive for a banned substance typically used to prevent side effects following cycles of steroids.

That means a "greater likelihood these (specified) substances could be susceptible to a credible non-doping explanation" and "possible for a prohibited substance to enter an athlete's body inadvertently".

USADA can even let the two off with just a warning.

The temporary suspension marks the start of the adjudication process and Lesnar is likely to receive a formal hearing with the NAC in the future. "And there will be a day, maybe, that they will see me back in the octagon". On June 28, Lesnar submitted to out-of-competition testing by USADA. Neither USADA nor the commission has yet to hand out a punishment, but both men are expected to appear before the NSAC later this year.

Lesnar has also been the center of controversy for the way his SummerSlam match with Orton played out, and a backstage confrontation with another popular wrestler, Chris Jericho, which took place immediately after the match.
