Report: WWE Won’t Punish Brock Lesnar for Failed UFC 200 Drug Tests

While Brock Lesnar could be looking at a two-year suspension for a possible violation of the UFC’s Anti-Doping Policy, the crossover star apparently won’t face any discipline from World Wrestling Entertainment for the infraction. According to a report from TMZ Sports , Lesnar is exempt from the organization’s wellness policy because he does not compete on a full-time basis for WWE. "WWE’s talent wellness program does not apply to part-time performers such as Brock Lesnar ," a spokesperson told TMZ. That should clear the way for Lesnar’s participation at WWE’s SummerSlam on Aug. 21. According to the report, Lesnar has appeared in the WWE ring a combined 19 times over the last three years, a far cry from the workload of the average professional wrestler. Lesnar was granted a one-off opportunity by the WWE to return to the Octagon at UFC 200 on July 9. In his first bout in nearly five years, the ex-heavyweight king earned a unanimous decision triumph against Mark Hunt . However, Lesnar reportedly tested positive for the estrogen blocker clomiphene in an out-of-competition test administered on June 28 as well as an in-competition test given at the event.

Opinion: Time for a UFC-Invicta Merger

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. *** It wasn’t long ago that the conversation about women’s divisions in the Octagon started and ended with one word : never. Of course, a lot has changed since then -- namely, Ronda Rousey happened -- and now with the successful expansion of the strawweight division and solid showcase bouts at 125 and 140 pounds, the arguments that women’s divisions are untenable or uninteresting are dumber and more transparently antiquated than ever. The audience for female fighting is very real, and it’s continuing to grow as the quality of competition improves. That makes sense; mixed martial arts is now a legitimate option for female martial artists and athletes who otherwise had few avenues to pursue. The early days of the Ultimate Fighting Championship provided similar opportunities for non- and post-Olympic wrestlers, as well as fighters outside the pure boxing spectrum, so long as they were the appropriate gender.

Mark Hunt Unloads on Brock Lesnar and UFC in Expletive Laden Interview

“he ASSUmed” so what he’s not going to fight b/c of thinks Lesnar was taking PED’s, so then every clean fighter should not step in th Octagon if they assume their opponent is using PED’s?!? Yeah that’s brilliant man, that will get the bills paid in no time. FYI genius, Lesnar was tested 4-6 times leading up to UFC 200 and apparently came back clean. So Hunt assumed and Lesnar was “clean,” yet you expect him to not fight?!? You’re not very bright, or at least haven’t looked at it form a fighters perspective. Easy for you to sit behind your computer and say well he assumed Brock was cheating so, it’s partially his fault for taking the fight…. WTF?!? It’ UFC 200 and the guy trained for months, expecting Brock to be clean. He’s mostly pissed off b/c Brock got paid so much money $2.5 Million (minimum) to cheat, and like Hunt, MANY people believe the UFC KNEW Brock was using PED’s, but the UFC doesn’t care b/c they made how many tens of millions?!? What if Hunt get’s seriously injured b/c of a cheater and can’t fight anymore, who’s going to take care of him and his family and pay the bills?!? The UFC?!?!? BAHAHAHAHA! Hunt is 100% right and I’d be pissed off as hell too, b/c the UFC only protect their money makers like Brock and Jones (and a few others).

UFC Plans Return Trip to Philippines on Oct. 15

The Ultimate Fighting Championship will touch down in the Philippines for the second time in its history on Oct. 15. No bouts have been announced for the UFC Fight Night event, which will be held at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Philippines. The venue, which seats 15,000, was the site for the first UFC show in the island nation on May 15, 2015. That card was headlined by a featherweight clash that saw Frankie Edgar defeat Team Alpha Male patriarch Urijah Faber by unanimous decision before a reported crowd of 13,446. In the co-main event, former Dream and Strikeforce champion Gegard Mousasi walked away with a unanimous verdict over Costas Philippou . UFC Fight Night “Edgar vs. Faber” was also witness to the retirement of 2001 NCAA wrestling champion Mark Munoz , the son of Filipino parents. Munoz exited the Octagon for the final time following his unanimous decision victory over Luke Barnatt .

Two Title Fights Rest Atop Tachi Palace Fights 28 Lineup on Aug. 4

Tachi Palace Fights 28 will feature a pair of title bouts on Aug. 4 in Lemoore, California, as Tony Llamas defends his lightweight crown against Danny Navarro in the main event and Jared Papazian meets Casey Kenney for the vacant flyweight championship in the co-headliner. Llamas will carry a five-fight winning streak into the cage. He laid claim to 155-pound gold at TPF 25 on Nov. 19, when he wiped out Dominic Clark with first-round punches. Llamas has finished four of his five opponents during his current tear. A Bellator MMA alum, Millennia MMA’s Navarro has rattled off back-to-back victories against Cleber Luciano and Cain Carrizosa . The 33-year-old Californian has gone 15-2 since starting his career with four consecutive defeats. Papazian, 28, has registered five wins in eight appearances since being released by the Ultimate Fighting Championship in 2012. A former King of the Cage champion, “The Jackhammer” last appeared at TPF 27 in May, when he submitted Alex Perez with a first-round armbar. The undefeated Kenney sports five finishes among his five victories.

No Ordinary Sibling Rivalry

Sibling rivalry can run in any family, but not every set of siblings settles its differences inside a steel cage for the whole world to see. Caros Fodor and Ben Fodor , adopted brothers, will meet in a catchweight showcase at World Series of Fighting 32 on Saturday at the Xfinity Arena in Everett, Washington. It will mark the first time a brother-versus-brother bout takes place inside a major mixed martial arts promotion. Their battle will be contested at a 162-pound catchweight, as Caros competes as a lightweight and Ben typically fights as a welterweight. The eldest of the two Fodor brothers, Caros, a United States Marine, started in MMA after returning from military service overseas. “After returning from the war in 2003, I was drinking a lot and hanging out with rowdy friends,” he told Sherdog.com. “We were getting into street fights, which led us to a kickboxing [gym], and then that led me to AMC [Pankration], where coach Matt Hume was teaching, and it sucked me in.” Caros has experienced highs and lows during his MMA career.

Kimbo Slice’s Son, Kevin Ferguson Jr., to Debut at Bellator 160

I’m not against this kid getting his shot and getting the opportunity to make some money, but this just feels a little wrong to me for some reason. It’s just a little too soon after Kimbo’s passing to bring his son up with his 1 amateur fight and parade him around. It’s just a very Bellator thing to do I guess is what I’m getting at, so I suppose it’s not a totally unexpected move.

The Bottom Line: Ruthless Progression

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. *** MMA has always been a sport where dynasties don’t last long. At the point a fighter is considered invincible, chances are good a fall is coming soon. However, there were exceptions: Anderson Silva , Georges St. Pierre , Jon Jones , Ronda Rousey and Jose Aldo . Today, not even the very best are safe. In division after division, the Ultimate Fighting Championship has been thrown into chaos. Cain Velasquez was supposed to dominate the heavyweight division for years and then ran into Fabricio Werdum in Mexico City. Werdum didn’t make it through his first defense. Jones’ dominance in the cage never ended, but continued mistakes outside that cage have derailed his career. Chris Weidman ’s middleweight title run came to an abrupt end at the hands of Luke Rockhold , who then dropped off his title to Michael Bisping . Rafael dos Anjos proved Anthony Pettis could be stopped, only to suffer the same fate against Eddie Alvarez .

Morning Report: Dana White says BJ Penn should have been 'one of the best to ever live'

Penn is a legendary figure in MMA, as revered for what he accomplished in MMA as for what what he didn't. Penn is one of only two, two-division champions in UFC history and his capture of the welterweight title from then pound-for-pound kingpin Matt Hughes is one of the most iconic moments in the promotion's history. His mercurial nature led him to vacate the welterweight belt in search of bigger game. He did eventually return to the UFC and claim the lightweight title in his career defining run. Penn's forays outside of the lightweight division means he is still one of MMA's foremost cited cases of "what could have been."
