Conspiracy Theorists Are Going to Have Fun With This One… Brock Lesnar’s USADA Test Sample Has Gone Missing…
Brock Lesnar is one of the most divisive figures in WWE/MMA. He’s literally a huge love-hate figure. A towering muscular figure, with that knife tattoo on his chest, he’s got legions of fans who adore him, but as many who think he’s just a juiced-up cheat, who shouldn’t be let near an MMA cage again.
After Daniel Cormier defeated Stipe Miocic to claim the heavyweight crown, Lesnar infamously entered the cage and the pair faced off like pro-wrestlers, with DC getting shoved backwards. Despite the fact that the pair were supposed to fight in the New Year, absolutely nothing has been announced about it, and it’s now December.
Even more bizarre is the fact that one of Lesnar’s USADA test samples appears to have gone missing. This is noteworthy after what happened last time he came back to the UFC and took on Mark Hunt. Lesnar tested positive for PED use (big surprise) and Hunt sued the UFC.
Ive gone through @USADA_UFC 's xml with a fine toothcomb.
Only Lesnar's test numbers have dropped between 28/11 and 7/12, no other fighters affected
Sample is from 17/10 reporting period. 2 samples reported that week originally.

As you can see from the chart above, Lesnar’s test results have dropped, suggesting that they’ve been altered. This is very irregular, especially as no other fighter is affected. The last time he fought, he tested positive for PEDs against Mark Hunt. The New Zealand native was furious to find out that Lesnar was coming back and getting a title shot straight away. He told assembled media:
“How’s that work? The motherf**ker’s a cheater. How is that controversy? F**king little c**t is f**king cheating, using steroids. F**k, man, how is that – you’re talking ‘a little bit of controversy?’ The f**king guy is cheating.”
“He’s cheating and trying to hurt me and you say, ‘oh, we’re going to be nice here’. F**k that cheater. How are you gonna be nice to the guy that is taking shortcuts, man? Don’t give him that. Why would you want to give him that sort of s**t? F**k, they don’t deserve it. You know, all these guys are just shortcut takers, and to me that’s all they’ll ever be. Nothing else.”
Junior Dos Santos is amongst many fighters who just don’t understand the allure of Lesnar. After beating Tai Tuivasa in Adelaide, he told MMA Fighting:
“The way I understand is that’s what Daniel Cormier wants to do to make money… Somehow, Brock Lesnar sells… I don’t know why. Why? Because he says stupid things? Because he’s a big guy who says stupid things? It doesn’t really make much sense for me.”
“Even because he doesn’t deserve to fight for the title. He has no record for that…USADA took him out and now he’s gonna come back and fight for the title. If MMA is a sport, a real sport, it doesn’t make any sense. But like I said, if people want to see that, we have to give them.”
Like it or not, people will tune in to watch Lesnar, the same way people tuned in to watch CM Punk. The UFC definitely still have their eyes on that WWE audience. However, now that Roman Reigns is no longer holding the Universal Championship, Lesnar has been reinstated with the title.
That suggests that he has signed a new deal with the biggest professional wrestling organization in the world. Will we ever seem in an octagon again? Honestly, we couldn’t care less.
