Brock Lesnar Asked For Tests on Eye Medication, Foot Cream Over UFC 200 Drug Tests

October 13, 2016 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Brock Lesnar asked for testing on eye medication and foot cream for clomiphene and clomiphene metabolites in relation to his failed UFC 200 drug tests. MMAjunkie reports that Lesnar’s lawyer told the NSAC of efforts to find out where the substance, which is an estrogen blocker and which Lesnar tested positive for, came from in a request to postpone a disciplinary hearing.

The lawyer said that the tests have been unsuccessful as of yet, writing, “We are still investigating this matter (which investigation includes the ongoing testing of products used by Mr. Lesnar prior to the date of the positive test),” wrote Howard Jacobs. To provide further detail, I am advised that the testing laboratory (Korva Labs) initially tested an eye medication, which was negative for either clomiphene or clomiphene metabolites. Subsequent testing has been conducted on a foot cream; that testing has included three separate extraction attempts, all of which have failed. A fourth extraction attempt is being made by Korva Labs this week.”

Jacobs added, “As you may be aware, testing of such creams can be a difficult process, as the extraction process can be significantly complicated by both a complex matrix and interfering substances. Until a successful extraction can be accomplished, this product cannot be tested for contamination with clomiphene or clomiphene metabolites. For this reason, the extraction failures to date provide no indication as to whether or not this cream is contaminated with clomiphene or clomiphene metabolites.”

Lesnar failed an out-of-competition urine test as well as a fight night test, both of which came back positive for clomiphene and clomiphene metabolites.

The NSAC granted Lesnar a continuance on Monday.
