Brock Lesnar will be back in the octagon in 2019.
In a statement released to MMAjunkie on Monday, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency said the former heavyweight champion re-entered its drug-testing pool on July 3 and will be eligible to return to the UFC in January.
“After receiving notice of his intent to compete in the UFC, Brock Lesnar re-entered the testing pool on July 3,” the statement read. “With six months and four days remaining on his period of ineligibility, Lesnar will be able to compete on or after January 8, 2019, should he remain in compliance with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy.”
Lesnar made an appearance during Saturday's UFC 226 in Las Vegas and accepted a challenge from current heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier after his first-round win over Stipe Miocic. UFC president Dana White fueled the fire when he confirmed that the fight will happen but said the date and location have yet to be determined.
Given the USADA news, a Lesnar-Cormier bout will likely be scheduled soon.
Lesnar defeated Randy Couture to become the heavyweight champion in 2008 but lost the title to Cain Velasquez in 2010 and made the move to WWE.
Lesnar's most recent WWE appearance took place at the Greatest Royal Rumble in April.
