Former UFC Heavyweight champ and current WWE superstar Brock Lesnar has finally gotten to a resolution in the multiple drug test failures originating from the UFC 200 showdown with Mark Hunt in Vegas in July.

 

His win over Hunt will likewise be overturned to a no contest.

 

Additional details of the settlement weren’t disclosed, according to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto.

 

Lesnar (5-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) returned to the UFC after nearly five years for a fight with Hunt at UFC 200. He originally won the competition by unanimous decision, but then controversy arose when he was nailed with not one, but two anti-doping violations from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which manages the UFC’s drug testing program.

 

While his legal team attempted to find the origin of the failures aside from a brief statement declaring his innocence, Lesnar has stayed mostly silent on the problem.

 

 

Although Lesnar stayed out of the limelight in the fighting world, he is remained active with WWE. He most recently headlined November’s Survivor Series event against Goldberg.

 

Lesnar, 39, will be eligible to reapply for MMA licensure in July 2017. With only one year remaining on his current WWE contract, another return to fighting is not out of the realm of possibility.
