Shortly after the UFC announced that Brock Lesnar had failed not one but two drug tests in the weeks leading up to his UFC 200 fight against Mark Hunt, the organization revealed that it would not be issuing a fine to Lesnar as a result of the failed tests. It allowed him to keep the money he made while winning the fight, which didn’t sit real well with Hunt. At about the same time, the WWE also announced that Lesnar would not face any punishment from the pro wrestling company due to his failed tests.
It doesn’t sound like Lesnar is going to get off without any sort of penalty, though. According to MMA Fighting, Lesnar has been temporarily suspended from the UFC for the time being while the Nevada Athletic Commission investigates his failed drug tests. The NAC made the decision on Tuesday and announced that Lesnar will be required to attend a formal hearing at some point in the near future. During that hearing, Lesnar could face a two-year suspension from the NAC and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency as well as a bunch of fines from both organizations, and if he is ultimately suspended for the full two years, it would likely end the 39-year-old's MMA career.
Lesnar tested positive for the anti-estrogen agent hydroxy-clomiphene prior to his fight with Hunt, which is substance that has been banned by the USADA. He failed one drug test on June 28 and another on July 9, the night of UFC 200. As of now, Lesnar hasn’t spoken much about the scandal that tarnished his UFC comeback, but we would expect him to say something once the NAC investigation plays out. In the meantime, he continues to generate headlines in the WWE.
