Brock Lesnar Facing a $1.25 Million Fine For Potential Doping Violation

According to, The Nevada State Athletic Commission could fine Brock Lesnar anywhere from $1.25 million to $1.875 million if he did indeed violate USADA’s anti-doping policy.

If Lesnar is fined, the amount of money could vary depending on the substance for which he tested positive. According to NSAC guidelines, athletes may be fined 50 to 75 percent of their purse if they fail a drug test for anabolic steroids, and the fine could be lower if the NSAC believes Lesnar inadvertently took a tainted supplement.

Dave Meltzer stated on Wrestling Observer Radio that the NSAC might also attempt to claim some of the money Lesnar is owed in PPV sales, as his guaranteed pay for the fight was $2.5 million, plus a cut of PPV revenue. As noted, Lesnar’s total UFC 200 payout is estimated at around $6 million.

A NSAC hearing regarding Lesnar’s possible USADA violation is expected to take place within a couple weeks, and aside from fines, Lesnar could be suspended from MMA for two years if he tested positive for PED use. Similarly to the fine situation, Lesnar might receive a shorter suspension if it’s found his doping violation was inadvertent. In either case, however, if it proves to be true that Lesnar did in fact violate USADA’s policy, his win against Mark Hunt at UFC 200 will either be overturned or deemed a “no contest.”
