Lesnar Has Yet To Pay $250,000 Fine For Failed Drug Test

Before WWE superstar Brock Lesnar even thinks about stepping foot back inside of the Octagon he’ll need to pay that pesky $ 250,000 fine he was dished out after failing drug tests for UFC 200 back in 2016.

Lesnar was also suspended for one year by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), but that obviously won’t affect his return to the cage considering Lesnar’s UFC 200 clash with Mark Hunt happened over two years ago.

According to a recent report by MMA Weekly, Lesnar has yet to open his wallet and hand over the $ 250,000 to NSAC. That means that Lesnar remains indefinitely suspended.

“(Lesnar) is still suspended based on his fine,” NSAC executive director Bob Bennett told MMA Weekly back in July. “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).”

Seems like Lesnar needed all of the $ 2.5 million he earned for UFC 200.

While Lesnar has already been linked to a return title fight against current UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, nothing can be finalized until “Beast Incarnate” settles the score with the Nevada Commission. Until that happens, any proposed superfight or rumored comeback will be put on the back burner.

Of course, if it really came down to it, I’m sure UFC would pick up the bill should Lesnar decline to pay.

Fabricio Werdum Talks About Failed Drug Test

Brazilian submission dude Fabricio Werdum has been the UFC’s “go to” heavyweight of late, hopping on cards all over the world to give people a reason to tune in. But alas, a run in with USADA will likely have Werdum on ice – possibly for about 80 years if USADA conducts any sort of investigation into tainted supplements or whatever.

Anyhoo, Werdum took to social media to address the failed test. He doesn’t really say mea culpa, he just says his team is working on resolving things.

(Hopefully, it’s not the same people who advised Jon Jones to go before the athletic commission with nothing but a shrug as his defense.)

Fala galera Fui pego de surpresa com a notícia de que um dos exames colhidos pela USADA em abril deu positivo para uma substância proibida. Me coloquei à disposição da USADA e do UFC e estou trabalhando com a minha equipe para entender o que aconteceu. Eu sempre fui muito cuidadoso com tudo o que eu tomo e sempre apoiei o esporte limpo. Vocês podem ter certeza de que vamos esclarecer esse mal entendido e espero em breve poder voltar a fazer o que eu amo, que é lutar. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Hey guys, I got up this morning to the news that one of my urine samples from April tested positive for a prohibited substance. I am working with my team, the UFC and USADA to understand what happened. I’ve always been careful with everything I take and I’ve always supported a clean sport. We will work hard to solve this misunderstanding and I hope soon to be able to go back to the octagon and do what I love
