Brock Lesnar failed a drug test following UFC 200 to the surprise of absolutely nobody. He came in as another huge name to try to save UFC 200 and put it over the top after Conor was dropped, and he got a win over Mark Hunt, who is furious about Brock’s failed test, as some people have made the implication that the UFC knew Brock wouldn’t be able to pass the pre-fight drug test, so they waited until the very last second before announcing the fight. This meant there wasn’t enough time for the drug samples to come back from the lab before the fight would have already taken place. It was the perfect crime, allegedly. Brock collects a huge pay day, the UFC gets to put his name on a poster, it’s a one-and-done anyways so who cares if he ultimately gets the 3 year suspension…
But, it all went out the window…
BREAKING: Brock Lesnar will pay fine of $250,000 and serve 1 year suspension for failed drug tests around UFC 200.

When it was revealed today that Brock is only getting a 1 year suspension, and a $250,000 fine. That’s surely a drop in the bucket compared to what he earned for this fight, but we’ll never know how much he was actually paid thanks to the UFC’s “backroom bonus” policies that extend beyond the pay that’s reported to the commission.
Realistically, we could see Brock fighting again this summer, after 1 year will have passed since his last fight.
