WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar may reportedly not be defending his Universal Championship at this year’s Summerslam pay-per-view. According to Mike Johnson of PW Insider Elite,

“I’m hearing that Brock isn’t working Summerslam. We may not see him again until later in the year which is madness, if you think about the belt.”

Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Lesnar has until today to enter into the UFC’s USADA pool. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter,

“If he doesn’t enter the USADA testing pool by 6/29, he won’t be able to fight the winner of the 7/7 Stipe Miocic vs. Daniel Cormier heavyweight title match on 12/29, or fight Jon Jones if somehow they can figure out a way to retain a smidgen of credibility for their drug testing program and somehow give Jones less than two years on a positive steroid test.”

Bryan Alvarez took to Wrestling Observer Live and commented that as of this juncture no one knows whether Lesnar has entered into the USADA pool; but, the onus is on the fighter, in this case Lesnar, to make the announcement. If Lesnar does not enter into the USADA pool by the end of today, he will reportedly be unable to compete in the UFC for the remainder of 2018.
