Brock Lesnar Suspended From UFC Over Drug Test Failures
Well, it looks like Brock Lesnar won’t be returning to the Octagon any time soon.
The WWE star has officially been suspended for one year and fined $250,000 for a pair of drug tests that came back positive in the wake of UFC 200. The drug test failures have now resulted in his decision victory over Mark Hunt being overturned to a no-contest.
According to reports, Lesnar popped for the banned substance hydroxy-clomiphene, and although this drug test failure didn’t result in any penalty by WWE, it’s been determined that Lesnar will not be able to compete in MMA again until Summer 2017.
That is, if he decides to compete in MMA again at all. As it stands now, he could easily remain in WWE and rake in the big dollars on a part-timer schedule, considering he’ll be in the Royal Rumble match this January along with Bill Goldberg. He’ll presumably compete at Wrestlemania as well, which should earn him well into the millions, even if it isn’t as much as he could have made in UFC.
But what do you think about this ruling? Sound off in the comments!
