Without knowing the full details there could be a legit reason, let's not overreact now 

They could have easily broken an NDA on purpose to be "First!" or there could be other reasons 

Well, he's making it sound like he wasn't under an NDA, and I wouldn't expect him to risk his reputation by breaking one.

They also banned Esther Lin and several other people as well. So it wasn't just Ariel Helwani. 

 

From what I've read on reddit and other places he simply broke an exclusive story before it was supposed to be announced by only a few hours and he was not under an NDA.

Yeah, they were with him at the time, so it seemed like they were just trying to scare anyone from associating with Ariel.

After weeks of speculation and rumor, we’re now getting word that the UFC has been sold for an impressive 4.2 billion dollars. Flosports.tv’s Jeremy Botter was the first to report the sale:

 

This means the sale is for the entire UFC and not just a percentage, which was the case several years ago when a 10% chunk was sold to Abu Dhabi company Flash Entertainment. According to those close to the deal, owners Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta will be leaving, while Dana White will remain with the company and continue to run the operation for the immediate future.

 

The Fertittas bought the UFC back in 2001 for $2 million dollars. Before they managed to turn things around for the fledgling sport, they sank over $40 million more into the company and were on the verge of shutting it down when the first season of The Ultimate Fighter reality show caught the attention of the masses in 2005 and turned mixed martial arts into the hottest new sport in the world.

 

It will be interesting to see what happens now that the UFC will be under new ownership. It seems likely that a ‘if it ain’t broken, don’t fix is’ approach will be taken, at least in the meantime while Dana White continues to run things. But we hope this new group — with several highly connected people in China — will do a better job of making the UFC a more international sport, and improve fighter pay to draw in more top athletes. The Zuffa era of the sport is ending. What happens next is anyone’s guess.

Well, I hope Mark Hunt enjoys seeing what the back of his skull looks like.

Did you write that wrong? Mark Hunt is an actual MMA legend. Brock Lesnar is some dude from a fake sport who can't physically throw a punch so Mark's skull will be just be fine unless you meant Brock is gonna fall down and his fat ass is going to break his skull?

I guess you weren't expecting that dude from a fake sport who can't physically throw a punch to get the win.

He didn't throw any real punches and neither did Mr. Hunt... Why he wasn't more aggressive we will never know. Brock did execute his famed beached whale technique perfectly to win the most boring fight of the night.

As I was saying. Looks like Brock did do some sort of damage to get the win.

I guess you didn't see the fight... Brock had a couple of take downs and laid on him for a bore fest. Lesnar actually had more damage to his face at the end which was weird considering Hunt only threw a few punches the whole fight. Now I am reading Brock Lesnar had an exception for early dope testing for the fight. What a joke... The one guy we all know is doping gets the exception.

Get ready to deliver one hell of an "I told you so"...

"The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Brock Lesnar of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on June 28, 2016. USADA received the testing results from the June 28, 2016 sample collection from the WADA-accredited UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory on the evening of July 14, 2016.

 

"USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. The Nevada State Athletic Commission also retains jurisdiction over this matter as the sample collection was performed in close proximity to Lesnar’s bout at UFC 200 in Las Vegas. 

 

"Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward."

LOL No kidding... I don't understand why Dana let him fight in the first place. Everyone and their brother knows he is a long time steroid and HGH (just look at his freaking head) user. The guy must have balls the size of raisins by now.

 

Thanks, I hadn't known that yet.

Actually, I was just watching one of the recent Joe Rogan Experience podcasts with Chael Sonnen, and he goes in depth about how they must take different substances to combat the effects of the "supplements" on the body. Pretty interesting. He talked about the manboob issue, but I'd assume there's one for the testes as well.

Maybe... He has been taking them so long I am not sure how those other supplements can be effective. Doesn't really matter of course... What does matter is the Brock Lesnar era in the UFC is finally going to be over.

Brock Lesnar is facing a USADA anti-doping violation after testing positive for a banned substance in a June 28 drug test. Lesnar, though, also came back clean in multiple previous tests, MMA Fighting confirmed Friday night with USADA.

 

"We'll get to the bottom of this," Lesnar said in a statement to The Associated Press.

 

Lesnar provided the AP with copies of three letters notifying him that he had passed USADA drug tests prior to UFC 200. Lesnar was tested eight times in the month leading up to his fight with Mark Hunt — five of them in the first two weeks he was under the UFC's anti-doping policy.

 

USADA spokesperson Ryan Madden confirmed with MMA Fighting that Lesnar passed multiple tests before the June 28 sample came back positive for a prohibited agent.
