WWE heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar has finally come to an agreement after his numerous drug test failures arising from July’s UFC 200 bout with Mark Hunt.
It is believed that Lesnar who recently tested positive to banned substance has reached a settlement agreement with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), which unfortunately includes a $250,000 fine alongside a one-year suspension of his professional fighting license. As a result, his victory over hunt will be overruled to a no contest.
Lesnar who fought Hunt at the UFC 200 was competing for the first time after five years away from the octagon. However, despite winning the fight against hunt by a unanimous decision, he was sanctioned for violating two anti-doping agency laws by testing positive to banned substance.
Besides his brief statement stating his innocence, the fighter has chosen to remain silent on the issue and allow his attorneys to sought out the reason why he failed the drug test. Read more »
