He was subsequently suspended from competition for a year by the US Anti-Doping Agency. Brock Lesnar’s decision of taking retirement from UFC means he has been now removed from USADA’s drug-testing pool, which monitors the fighters year-round. If in case, he change his mind and decides to return to competition, he would have to serve the remaining five months of his suspension.
Decision did not affect Lesnar’s career!
Brock Lesner is a well-known wrestler, and it seems that this decision will not affect his career. The decision doesn’t affect Lesnar’s professional wrestling career, where the multitalented athlete has spent most of the past five years. He is scheduled to perform for the WWE at WrestleMania in Orlando on April 2.
Beast has fought for the UFC just eight times, but he became one of the biggest pay-per-view stars in the sport’s history during his brief run. The wrestling champion of WWE has drawn a lot of young fans with his violent nature. He made a guaranteed $2.5 million purse for his victory over Hunt last year, along with likely millions in undisclosed bonuses. But Lesnar failed a drug test taken before his fight and another on fight night. He tested positive for clomiphene, a banned substance under USADA rules. Lesnar also endured serious health problems that curtailed his MMA fighting prime, including a bout of diverticulitis.
