Lesnar agrees to $250K fine and 1 year suspension
December 15, 2016
Brock Lesnar has agreed to a settlement with the Nevada State Athletic Commission stemming from his failed drug tests post-UFC 200 per Brett Okamoto. The settlement was confirmed at Thursday’s monthly commission meeting.
Lesnar will pay $250,000 and serve a 1 year suspension retroactive to July 2016.
The $250,000 is 10% of Lesnar’s reported payout of $2.5 million from UFC 200. The settlement closes any inquiry as to the drug test failures and the alleged substances found in the tests although he still will have to deal with USADA. But, one would think Lesnar will settle as well. Whether or not we’ll see Lesnar back in the UFC will be an interesting question.
