WWE/MMA news: Brock Lesnar may be hit with a huge fine from NSAC
As we reported earlier, after his impressive victory over Mark Hunt, Brock Lesnar couldn't celebrate for long as he was flagged by USADA for an out-of-competition sample dated on June 28th.
Now it looks like that this mistake could come back to haunt Brock Lesnar. As Dailywrestlingnews.com reports, a positive B-sample result will almost certainly lead to a fine from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
According to the reports, Brock made around $2.5 million from his UFC 200 win in Las Vegas, meaning that he could be hit with a fine of somewhere from $1.25 million to $1.875 million according to NSAC guidelines.
An athlete can be fined 50 to 75 percent of their purse if they fail a drug test.
But that's not all, Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer radio that NSAC can also go after the money Brock received as PPV bonus from the UFC. According to a presumption, Lesnar made more than $8 Million in total for his UFC return
He could also face a 2-year suspension from participating in MMA if his test results come positive for PEDs. Lesnar may face an NSAC hearing for his potential USADA violation in next couple of weeks.
