Lesnar, who hasn’t fought since UFC 200, has to get a few things done before the super fight can actually take place. Those things are that Lesnar has to serve the rest of a USADA issued suspension after a pair of failed drug tests in line with UFC 200, with the other being that Lesnar has to be in the USADA testing pool for six months and pass each test.
The WWE Universal Champion has apparently undergone the first USADA issued drug test since his intentions on returning were revealed according to a report from MMA Junkie. It is unknown at this time as to whether or not Lesnar passed the drug test, but a failure could be catastrophic for the fighter and the potential super fight with DC.
DC himself, in a recent interview with MMA Junkie, stated that Lesnar must be clean for their potential bout to happen.
“Brock’s got to be clean,” Cormier said. “I’m not going to fight him if he’s not clean. We’ll do USADA testing, and we’ll do other testing. We’ll do testing above USADA to make sure this man’s clean, because I’m not going to fight him if he’s cheating. I’ve done that on a number of occasions already (with others). I don’t want to fight him if he’s dirty, man. Do it the right way.”
UFC 233 would be the first potential event the super fight can happen at, but the UFC hasn’t announced any dates for any of their 2019 offerings at this time.
