Brock Lesnar’s return to the UFC was short lived one. To be more precise it lasted one fight. He told company officials that was retiring from MMA for a second time.
Lesnar came back from a four-and-a-half-year break to defeat Mark Hunt by unanimous decision at UFC 200 last July. He then failed two drug tests related to the fight. One test was on the day of the fight, while the other was weeks before on June 28th. He was suspended for one year and he also agreed to pay a $250,000 fine as part of a settlement with the Nevada attorney general’s office. Lesnar’s victory over Hunt was also overturned into a No Contest.
A former wrestling champion, Lesnar was a sensation in his brief MMA career, becoming one of the biggest draws in UFC history despite competing just eight times inside the Octagon.
He is now retiring from the sport with a record of 5-3, with one No Contest.
