    UFC star pleads guilty to hunting charge

    CALGARY — UFC star Brock Lesnar has pleaded guilty to one of the hunting charges he faced, paid a $1,725 fine and said he looks forward to coming back to Alberta for another hunt after last year’s “misunderstanding.”

    A lawyer representing the ex-heavyweight mixed martial arts champion entered the plea in a courtroom in Medicine Hat on Tuesday.

    Lesnar had been facing three charges laid by Alberta Fish and Wildlife officers. Those were: unlawful possession of wildlife (a whitetail deer), wastage of edible flesh (of a mule deer) and failure to immediately affix a tag to an animal.

    The first two charges have now been dropped.

    In a statement, Lesnar said he was participating in a filmed hunt guided by Trophy Hunters Alberta in November 2010. As an American hunting in Alberta, he needed to hire a guide to hunt legally.

    “The outfitter is there to make sure you follow the rules. I had two deer tags for the trip which meant I could legally shoot two deer. On the first day of the trip, I shot a mule deer,” he said.

    “On the second day, I shot a white tail. Video from the hunt has been on the Internet for over a year. After I shot the mule deer, I failed to immediately tag it. As far as I was involved, that’s all there is to it.”

    In reference to the spoiled meat charge, Lesnar said he could not bring meat across the border and trusted the outfitter to handle it appropriately.

    Lesnar said the fine has been paid and “it’s the kind of thing that happens to hunters all the time.”

    He is suspended from hunting in Alberta for six months.

    “I want to thank the Canadian authorities for their co-operation in resolving this misunderstanding. I love Canada and I can’t wait to go back to Alberta for a hunt,” said Lesnar through his agent Brian Stegeman.

    “I’m glad to put this behind me, so I can focus on my fight against Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 on Dec. 30.”

    A representative from Trophy Hunters Alberta declined comment when reached by phone.

    Lesnar’s guide, Chad Stryker, was also charged with the same three counts. He will appear in court in January.

    Brock Lesnar cleared a potential road block by finally settling that hunting issue he's been charged with in Canada. His attorney pleaded guilty for him on violating a hunting law in Canada for "failure to immediately affix a tag to an animal".

    He paid a fine of $1,725, and will have a 6-month hunting suspension, although the former UFC champion still insists he did nothing wrong. Lesnar talked to MMA Fighting about it:

    "As far as I'm concerned, I didn't disobey the law," Lesnar said. "I guess in other people's judgment, they saw it differently. At the end of the day, if they saw fit that I did something wrong, I'm a grown-up and I'll take my fine and go on with my life."

    "I'm an excellent hunter. I've been hunting since I was five years old, and at the end of the day, for God's sakes, I don't waste any meat. If you ever looked at my dinner plate when I was done eating you'd know that."

    Two other charges of leaving meat to rot, and illegal possession of wildlife, stemming from the incident were dropped after this.

    On other news related to the popular fighter, Lesnar also addressed concerns and criticisms he's been getting about not being able to take a good shot after his performances against Cain Velasquez and Shane Carwin. He talked to Ben Fowlkes about it and called BS on the issue:

    "I think it's a bunch of bulls---," Lesnar said. "The fights that I've gotten hit, I've stood and banged with Heath Herring, Randy Couture, Frank Mir -- I've taken a lot of shots. I mean, Shane Carwin. And I've yet to be knocked out. I had refs stop a fight for a submission and a TKO, which is a referee stoppage. I've never been knocked out cold."

    "Any time you're on top, whatever it is, and I don't care if it's the business world or it's in farming or fighting -- and those are all things that I'm in -- there's people out to get you," he said. "There's criticism. I don't know if it's just that people don't like to see other people succeed, or just if they want to see them fail."

    "in the heavyweight division, if guys are putting leather in the right spots, it's hard to come back from that."

    Naturally, people will bring up the fact that Lesnar doesn't have to be "out cold" for them to conclude that he doesn't react well to being hit... but let's play devil's advocate for a second -- unlike Lesnar, Alistair Overeem has been "out cold" before, so is it fair to worry on his "chin issues" as well?


    Hrrm again looks like most the blame is on the guide shit, they still have court for this shit.. again lets blame brock, he probably kicked a dog or something as he was walking across the street. Hell can someone find a way to make Dana responsible for this too, if we hate on brock for this Dana needs some hate too.. ??? Anyone?

    Wow, people first off lets think of something. You are going to an out of country hunt, you hire a local guide, because well the laws of the land the guide will know, also they will be able to help with everything with the hunt. Typically guides get paid from anywhere between 3000-8000 per hunt, and people use guides when they like to hunt but have other things to do like scouting out before the hunting season starts, ect. Also you typically have good faith put in the guide that they will keep you legit. Now one of the reasons the charges were dropped on the other crimes simply legally the responsibility is on that of the Guide, not the hunter. So again the people who will hate brock for no reason now compare him to Michael Vick.. how fucking sad are you fools?

    Degenero LoL.

    Could I have a link for what beau's version is? It says the charge is for leaving a rotting carcass yet he did not provide a source for it. Therefore his statement is just speculation as any of ours is.

    If he could not take it any further than he could have made arrangements for it to go somewhere. Perhaps with the guide who took him out.

    I threw no swear words. Pretty funny that you say that Mr. Highlighter.

    I assume it is because he cares not for what he does nor does he care for the reprecussions and for how the charges of what he did are laid out. You ass.
    So now I'm blind too.
    Yes I highlighted it and I thought that was pretty good too surprised you caught it more though.
    Merry Christmas as I'm done.

    Yeah well congrats on making yourself look like an asshole who doesn't read the entire story. Check out Beau's post unless you want to continue to sound like a broke dick who's mad at people for making money.

    Then it was up to Alberta to charge him with not having a tag and throwing away half his meat....then the guide came out and told authorities he only tagged one of the animals.

    That is the problem.

    Not as big and issue as I thought. Glad they dropped the other charges.

    Sounds like he followed all the rules, except for actually using that second tag....I wonder who actually has that second tag? Was it in Brock's pocket once he got to the border? I bet it was in Brock's possession and not in the Guide's.
    Degenero The charge is for leaving behind a rotting carcass. I am sure that the hunter would know that it's wrong to leave a carcass to rot in the forest rather than take it with them.
    So if you read what Beau wrote it's not in the forest and he didn't leave it behind until he couldn't legally couldn't take it any further. I'll stop their and keep it simple for ya. So now you can throw some more swear words at me to prove your point

    Do people not familiarize themselves with legisliation in jurisdictions outside their own?
    when someone hunts in a place where they are not familiar with local hunting laws they hire a guide for this reason. not all fault is on the guide but that is a big part of a hunting guide's job. however i'm sure this wasnt brocks first hunting trip to canada and at the end of the day brock is the one that did the deed and its ultimatly his responsibility to make sure he is following proper hunting and tagging procedures. IMHO both are at fault

    Now you assume just because he has money
    I assume it is because he cares not for what he does nor does he care for the reprecussions and for how the charges of what he did are laid out. You ass.
