‘Smaller’ Brock Lesnar deemed steroid free after passing Daniel Cormier’s eye test

Great news everyone!

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar, is not taking steroids or any other form of performance-enhancing drugs, so we don’t have to worry about another incident like the one that marred his previous return at UFC 200.

That’s according to current 265-pound champion, Daniel Cormier.

“When I look at Brock and I see him now and he’s competing in the WWE and being under the USADA testing program, I see the differences in him,” Cormier told Jim Rome (via MMA News). “You look at Brock Lesnar today as opposed to when he came back at UFC 200, he looks like a completely different person. He’s smaller physically, his face looks a lot smaller, there’s just a lot of differences in him so if I am to believe my eyes, then it tells me that he’s being tested and he’s being tested a lot.”

I believe the word he’s looking for is “tiny,” like the little lame boy from A Christmas Carol.

United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) is charged with making sure Lesnar pees by the rules, and you can bet the pro wrestling import is under the proverbial microscope after making the governing body look foolish back in 2016.

As for 2018? USADA looked foolish on its own.

Lesnar is expected to make his mixed martial arts (MMA) comeback in early 2019 in a heavyweight title fight he didn't earn and doesn’t deserve. But Cormier paid his dues and will get that career-high payday (thanks to this guy) before riding off into the San Jose sunset.

Remember folks, MMA is not a sport, it’s prize fighting.
