Brock Lesnar Suspended One Year, Fined $250k By NSAC For Failed UFC 200 Drug Tests


The verdict is in for former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) issued their ruling for current WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar, who failed multiple drug tests for his “one-off” return bout against Mark Hunt at the landmark UFC 200 event held in Nevada earlier this year.

Lesnar, who defeated “The Super Samoan” at the event after a several year absence from the sport, received a $250,000 fine and a one-year suspension by the NSAC. The fine amount of $250,000 is equivalent to ten-percent of the purse Lesnar reportedly received for the Hunt fight, as he was rumored to have earned a $2.5 million purse for UFC 200.

In addition to the fine and suspension, Lesnar’s victory over Hunt will also be changed to a “No Contest” ruling.

Brock Lesnar defeated Mark Hunt via three-round unanimous decision at the aforementioned UFC 200 show, which was held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada back on July 9, 2016.
