Brock Lesnar popped for potential USADA violation dating back to June 28 out-of-competition drug test

Joshua Dahl-USA TODAY Sports

Brock Lesnar has been popped for a potential United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) violation dating back to an out-of-competition drug test on June 28.

According to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), who released a statement earlier this evening (Friday, July 15, 2016) regarding Lesnar, USADA received the results of the out-of-competition test on July 14. Remember, Lesnar last fought at UFC 200 on July 9, defeating Mark Hunt via unanimous decision.

Prior to UFC 200, former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones was also flagged for a violation dating back to June 16.

Like most of these cases, no official announcement has been made regarding the banned substance(s) that Lesnar may have taken. But considering the former UFC Heavyweight king and current WWE superstar made his return to the Octagon at UFC 200 after taking nearly a five-year hiatus from mixed martial arts (MMA), this USADA violation can't be good.

But maybe, just maybe, Lesnar is simply a jacked white boy.
