Brock Lesnar has responded to news of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected prior to his fight against Mark Hunt at UFC 200.
In a brief statement provided exclusively to The Associated Press, Lesnar said, “We will get to the bottom of this.”
The Associated Press also received copies of three letters from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to Lesnar informing the fighter that he had passed tests on three samples submitted over a nine-day period in mid-June.
Having lost to Lesnar at UFC 200, Hunt said he has asked UFC President Dana White for half of Lesnar’s record $2.5 million guaranteed purse or to be released from his contract effective immediately.
“They say they are trying to clean up the sport, but it doesn’t feel like it,” Hunt told MarkHunt.TV. “The UFC is basically saying if you cheat you won’t be penalized.”
He continued, “This is the third time I’ve had to fight a cheater in my career. The other two times I didn’t ask for compensation, but this is the third time and I’m sick of them getting away with cheating. I’ve told Dana that I want a release from the UFC if they don’t sort this out.”
