The Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) on Thursday has issued the former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar a one-year suspension which is due to two failed drug tests in relation to his UFC 200 bout against Mark Hunt.

Lesnar has agreed to pay a $250,000 fine as part of a settlement agreement with the Nevada attorney general’s office. His win against Hunt will be overturned into a no contest as well.

He tested positive for Hydroxy-clomiphene prior to the fight with Mark Hunt, first in an out-of-competition USADA drug test on June 28, then in an in-competition test the day the fight was happened.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
