Lesnar was hit by a whopping quarter - million - dollar fine and a 12-month suspension in 2016 after testing positive for a performance enhancement drugs. His UFC 200 victory over Mark Hunt was overturned to a No-Contest.
NSAC Executive Director Bob Bennett told MMA Weekly Ken Pishna that Lesnar still had to pay his fine and was, therefore, unable to compete in Las Vegas.
Bob Bennett back in July had told MMA Weekly:
(Lesnar) is still suspended on the basis of his fine, and he has to pay the fine or set up a payment plan with the Attorney General's Office (to be cleared of suspension)"
Lesnar's last official win came in 2010 when he presented Shane Carwin with the aim of retaining his heavyweight UFC. Before the fight against Mark Hunt, Lesnar dropped two losses to Cain Velasquez and Alistair Overeem and lost both fights via TKO in the first round.
