It’s only a formality at this point and could get overturned as soon as the investigation is over, but for now, Brock Lesnar has been suspended from MMA fights as a result of his two recent drug failures surrounding his UFC 200 return.
Brock Lesnar has been temporarily suspended for his two UFC 200 drug testing failures. Official hearing at a later date.

Lesnar will continue to wait and see what the investigation turns up. Jon Jones, who is going through the same process at the moment, claims that he’ll be getting good news coming out of his investigation. Although the two failures for both men don’t appear to bode well, there are always loopholes and exceptions that can be found.
UFC (and WWE) has already stated that Brock won’t be relinquishing any of his fight purse, no matter the outcome of the investigation, but there is a chance he might be forced to pay a fine to the USADA. Of course, that fine won’t come close to the record payday he got for UFC 200, but hey, those Jimmy John’s sandwiches aren’t free! (Unless you’re Brock Lesnar. Oh … crap.)
