Brock Lesnar suspended one year, UFC 200 win overturned to no contest

Post by Kinosis on Thu Dec 15, 2016 5:32 pm

Former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has finally faced his punishment after failing a pair of drug tests surrounding his return bout at UFC 200 in July.

Lesnar tested positive for a pair of anti-estrogen drugs called clomiphene and hydroxy-clomiphene in both an out-of-competition drug sample collected on June 28 as well as a second sample taken on the night of his fight against Mark Hunt on July 9.

Lesnar has been suspended for one year retroactive to the date of his fight with Hunt, and he was also fined $250,000 for the infraction.

Lesnar's win at UFC 200 will also be overturned to a no contest.

The terms of the agreement were already set before the Nevada State Athletic Commission had a hearing on the matter on Thursday. The commission voted unanimously to accept the terms of the agreement.

The fine equals out to 10-percent of Lesnar's $2.5 million disclosed purse that he earned for the fight with Hunt at UFC 200.

With the suspension and the fine handed down, Lesnar's tumultuous return to the UFC has finally come to a close after the WWE superstar came back to fight for the first time in nearly five years.

There's been no indication that Lesnar intends to return to the UFC to fight again following this latest incident but with a one-year suspension he would be eligible as early as July 9, 2017.

Before Lesnar would be eligible to fight again, he would have to submit clean drug samples at intervals of 30, 15 and 3 days prior to any contest.

Well he can fight again next July if he chooses. I'd like to see him fight in Japan next anyway.

^Yeah, the 1 year suspension probably means nothing to him since he doesn't fight often anyway (and may never fight again). I'm sure his win being turned into a NC and the fine he paid means more to him.

That's probably true. Sucks because after the fight it sounded like he was interested in fighting again but now probably not.

Which commission punished Diaz again? 5 years for weed and 1 for actual PED's?
