    “They cannot do that. That’s impossible,” Struve told Submission Radio. “That would be the worst message the UFC could ever send out. So if he fights again, he should go through six months of testing, I believe, before he fights again. I think that’s the rule right now. So if he comes back, and they let him go through those six months of testing, then I’m curious to see how he steps in the cage.”

    “I think Jones beats him anyway – simple as that,” Struve said. “Jones is too good of an athlete. I don’t think Lesnar gets a hold of him to take him down. Jones moves too well. I think ‘D.C.’ is a great fighter, and of course that kick was great, but before that I didn’t see the Jon Jones who we used to see as dominant as he used to be.

    “So I’m curious to see if he re-finds himself and gets to be more dominant again. But I don’t think Lesnar takes him down or anything, and he’s definitely not going to win the fight on the feet.”

    Struve obviously hasn't been following the UFC promotion of freak-show fights.

    He's right, and @dimspace has confirmed on here before, there is no way Brock can fight without a minimum of 6 months in the testing pool. Potentially longer.

    Kinda right though. Struve has taken some of the worst head trauma ever in Mma. Nelson and Rousey husband come to mind

    Wouldn't Brock still have a suspension to sit through?

    Brock Lesnar isn't coming back. It would make UFC look so bad if they allowed him to fight again

    Which is strange since he'll only go through 5.

    why will he only go through five?

    he has in excess of six months remaining on his suspension, and even if he didnt, he still would have to do six months return to pool becuse of prior positive and theres no room in the adp for that to be reduced

    it is completely and utterly impossible for him to do less than six months. That would be the bare minimum, with no potential for reduction. (and hes got more than six months remaining on his ban anyway)
