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.

Reports from anti-doping agency suggest that the WWE superstar tested positive for a banned substance called clomiphene. According to the agency, this substance is an estrogen blocker which remains in the body even after 30 days of use. While his team is suspecting that the substance may be part of the foot lotion the fighter used in the build-up to the fight, Lesnar claimed he was ignorant it contained the banned substance.

Although the fighter had stayed off the fighting universe for about five years, he had been competing regularly in the WWE, with his last fight coming at survivor series against Goldberg.

Despite his suspension, the fearsome Lesnar will be eligible to reapply for MMA license next year. Lesnar who has just one year remaining on his WWE contract would be hoping to procure his license to enable his return into the UFC.
