Nelson ridicules Dana White for claiming Brock Lesnar was 'clean' athlete

Another one bites the dust. This time, it's WWE-UFC megastar Brock Lesnar who has been caught out by the United States Anti-Doping Agency after it was revealed he failed an out-of-competition drug test on Friday.

Lesnar, who beat Mark Hunt via unanimous decision in the co-main event of UFC 200, joins the ranks of Jon Jones and Frank Mir as one of the latest athletes to test positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

Mark Hunt expressed his disappointment on social media earlier today and Roy Nelson took it upon himself to ridicule Dana White for initially mocking the idea of Lesnar using PEDs.

Lesnar is renowned for his monstrous physique but many fans felt the former UFC heavyweight champion was just a freak athlete.

The 39-year-old seized the HW title just four fights into his into his MMA career after defeating Randy Couture at UFC 91. Lesnar went on to defend the belt two more times but retired after suffering back-to-back first-round TKO's to Cain Velasquez and Alistair Overeem.

His fight with Hunt, which marked Lesnar's first MMA fight in five years, is likely to be overturned to a No Contest and the former NCAA Division I wrestler could face a two-year suspension. Lesnar's failed drug test stemmed from a random sample conducted on June 28, but the USADA have yet to reveal which substance he tested positive for.
