Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar was accused of taking performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) from his UFC 200 co-main event opponent Mark Hunt, who tries to send the WWE import back to the land of make believe next week in Las Vegas, Nevada.

His response?

"I’ve been dealing with that my entire life," Lesnar said during yesterday's UFC 200 media conference call (via MMA Junkie). "What do you want me to say? I’m a white boy and I’m jacked, deal with it."

Lesnar has never failed a drug test in his career.

That didn't stop him from being criticized for receiving a special exemption from United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which allowed the one-in-a-million athlete to bypass the four-month window for all mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters choosing to come out of retirement for one (or more) fights.
