Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has been suspended from mixed martial arts (MMA) by United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) following a pair of positive drug tests before and after UFC 200.
It should, as the part-time pro wrestler also got dinged by Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC). In addition to his 12-month time out, NSAC dealt with it fined him $250,000 fine before changing his unanimous decision win over Mark Hunt to a “no contest.”
From the USADA press release:
Lesnar, 39, tested positive for clomiphene and its metabolite, 4-hydroxyclomiphene, following an out-of-competition urine test conducted on June 28, 2016, and an in-competition urine test conducted on July 9, 2016, at UFC 200 in Las Vegas, Nev. Clomiphene is a prohibited substance in the category of Hormone and Metabolic Modulators and is prohibited at all times under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, which has adopted the WADA Prohibited List.
Not harsh enough?
His suspensions are nothing more than a formality at this point. Lesnar’s return to the hurt business — following his original retirement back in 2011 — was expected to be a one-off, a chance to ride off into the sunset free of diverticulitis.
No word yet if he’ll get that chance again when his suspension expires in July 2017.
All signs point to … maybe?
