Various: Lesnar Owes $250K Fine, Impact’s New Interviewer, Paige Movie at Sundance

Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar still owes a $250,000 fine that he was given by the Nevada State Athletic Commission as a result of his failed drug tests after his 2016 fight against Mark Hunt at UFC 200, according to MMA Fighting.

If Lesnar wants to compete in MMA again, he would have to pay the fine, and until then, he is still technically suspended. If he does choose to fight again, it’s expected that he will pay the fine or work out a payment plan with the NSAC that will lift his suspension.

Lesnar re-entered the USADA testing pool last year and has been tested five times since. The results haven’t been publicly released, which typically indicates that they came back clean from any banned substances.

For now, the previously planned fight between Lesnar and Daniel Cormier remains up in the air.
