Brock Lesnar has been given a serious slap on the wrist for failing a drugs test after UFC 200.

The WWE star made a triumphant comeback to the organisation in July and won the heavyweight bout in Las Vegas.

Just days after that win Lesnar failed a doping test of a sample given before the fight and was order to take a second. The further sample also showed up positive for Clomiphene.

Last night, the fighter learned that he is to be suspended for a year by the US Anti-Doping Association for failing both samples. On top of that he was also given a year ban by the Nevada State Athletic Commission and  was slapped with a fine of over 200 thousand dollars. The ban started from July so he should be able to fight this summer.

Despite his ban, Lesnar can continue fighting in the WWE.
