Brock Lesnar shocked the fight world when it was revealed that one of the drugs tests he had taken before UFC 200 came back positive.
Lesnar took several USADA tests and they all came back clean, exact this one. Ever since then, people have been asking how that could happen and what Lesnar had taken to give a positive test.
Well, for the first time since the news broke, we may finally have an idea. According to one person, Lesnar took an asthma drug which may well have been what popped.

While it sounds highly questionable, an apparent training partner of Lesnar is claiming that the former WWE and UFC heavyweight champion was taking some medication for asthma.
This comes from Steve Carrier of NoDQ.com, who have relayed the training partners quotes.
“As many of you know, I train with Brock and have brought to this board a lot of inside information on camp and his comeback. Towards the end of camp, we kept things fun and did a lot of outdoor conditioning in Alexandria MN. This caused a severe reaction one day with Mr. LESNAR," the training partner starts off as saying.
Apparently, Lesnar had a pretty bad asthma attack and took a medically supplied drug to counter it.
"He literally would not stop hyperventilating for almost 10 minutes after 5 rounds of hill sprints mixed with kettlebell work. Brock suffers from what's called RAD otherwise known as Reactive airway disease his doctor for years has prescribed him Advair Diskus."
"This drug is classified as Beta-2 Agonists. So this is why he got popped by USADA."
We will have to wait for the full facts to come out before we truly know what happened with Lesnar, but this is a start.
