Brock Lesnar temporarily suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission

On Tuesday morning, Lesnar got word that he’s been issued a temporary suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission as a result of his multiple drug failures following UFC 200. It’s the first step in a process that will eventually lead to a formal hearing where Lesnar could face a two-year suspension under USADA guidelines.

MMA Fighting’s Shaun Al-Shatti first reported the news.

The 39-year-old tested positive for hydroxy clomiphene in two separate tests, one on June 28th prior to UFC 200 and then during an in-competition test at the show. Lesnar bested Mark Hunt via unanimous decision in his first appearance back in the UFC in nearly five years.
