Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has yet to pay a $250,000 fine which was issued by the Nevada State Athletic Commission following his UFC 200 fight against Mark Hunt.
The report which comes from MMAWeekly states that Lesnar paid the quarter million dollar fine which was handed down to him after he tested positive for the estrogen blocker, clomiphene.
Lesnar was fined and suspended for one year (which he has served), and also had his win over Hunt overturned to a no-contest.
Althought he has not fought since July 2016, Lesnar entered USADA’s testing pool as talks of a possible heavyweight title bout against Daniel Cormier have been looming. He was subjected to five drug tests in 2018, including one in the fourth quarter. Thus far, no results have been made public indicating a positive result for any banned substances.
Even if all the tests come back clean, Lesnar will have to pay the fine or at least set up a payment plan in order to get the green light to compete.
“(Lesnar) is still suspended based on his fine,” NSAC executive director Bob Bennett told MMAWeekly.com in July when a Cormier vs. Lesnar bout first appeared likely. “He is required to pay the fine or set up a payment plan with the Attorney General’s Office (to get cleared from the suspension).”
Lesnar is currently 41-year old and is still under contract with the WWE. UFC President Dana White says the door for Lesnar’s return is open.
