It’s been a while since we heard anything about Brock Lesnar and his continued fight with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) over several failed drug tests surrounding his UFC 200 fight with Mark Hunt. When we last checked in, his defense had something to do with foot cream.
It mattered not.
As Brett Okamoto of ESPN passed along today, Lesnar was fined and suspended for his failed tests:
BREAKING: Brock Lesnar will pay fine of $250,000 and serve 1 year suspension for failed drug tests around UFC 200.— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) December 15, 2016
As expected, Brock Lesnar's win over Mark Hunt at UFC 200 will be changed to a "no contest."— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) December 15, 2016
The suspension is retroactive to July. None of this makes much of a difference regarding his status with WWE, considering they have a loophole he’s currently exploiting. Just don’t expect to see him back in the UFC anytime soon.
