The NAC confirmed during a hearing that Lesnar tested positive for the estrogen blocker clomiphene during an out-of-competition test on June 28 as well as an in-competition test at UFC 200. In his first MMA bout in nearly five years, Lesnar defeated Mark Hunt via unanimous decision in the evening’s co-main event at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Lesnar will receive a formal hearing a later date and faces a potential two-year suspension from USAD and the NAC as well as fines. The WWE star earned a disclosed purse of $2.5 million at UFC 200.

Lesnar returned to the WWE following his bout with Hunt and has remained largely silent on the issue of his anti-doping violation. However, the 39-year-old South Dakota native did address a potential Octagon return in an interview with TMZ Sports ahead of his Sunday appearance at SummerSlam.

"To my fans that watch me in the octagon, I thank them for their support. This has been a bumpy road. I'm gonna get through this alright. And there will be a day, maybe, that they'll see me back in the octagon."
