Brock Lesnar competed at UFC 200 earlier this year in a match against Mark Hunt which he won. It was supposed to be a historic event for the promotion but it has since been surrounded by controversy.
Mere days after the event had taken place, news broke that Lesnar had failed two USADA drug tests and was therefore suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. He was tested positive for clomiphene, which according to Cageside Seats is 'an anti-estrogen agent often used when athletes are looking to stimulate testosterone production after anabolic steroid cycles.'
The current WWE superstar was supposed to meet the commission on November 10 to present their case against this suspension, but they've asked for a continuation for a hard-to-believe reason.

Lesnar and his team have asked for a continuation in the case because he is having a foot cream he took tested to see if comes back for the banned substance he tested positive for, according to ESPN's Brett Okamoto. Testing that won't be completed until after November 10.
The new hearing with the commission isn't expected to take place until December 15.
Really? Foot cream?
Although I have zero understanding of chemical compounds in foot creams, to believe enough of it would enter his bloodstream to be detected in drug tests just by rubbing it on his feet seems a little far-fetched to me.
That result is not out of possibility, but overall, his staff should have checked to see what agents are in the cream he uses to repair blisters on his feet before he even applies it. For a fighter of his stature, this shouldn't have been overlooked.
We'll have to wait and see for the results of the tests on the foot cream before coming to any more conclusions.
