Lesnar’s win over Hunt overturned

Colin Cowherd knows exactly how No. 3 Notre Dame and No. 12 Syracuse will end on Saturday

Brock Lesnar’s victory over Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in July has been overturned to a no contest after he tested positive for banned substances. 

During an out-of-competition drug test and on the day of the fight itself, Lesnar tested positive for clomiphene, an anti-estrogen agent, and hydroxy-clomiphene, which is a metabolite of chomiphene. 

Lesnar, who defeated Hunt via unanimous decision, has also been banned from competing in the UFC for a year and fined $US250,000 after the Nevada State Athletic Commission unanimously voted on Thursday that he be docked 10 per cent of the $2.5 million purse he received from the fight. 

With Lesnar unable to return to the Octagon until July next year and having been hit with a fine, it will be some form of closure for Hunt, who has repeatedly called on the UFC to punish Lesnar and any fighter that tests positive for banned substances. 

These cheaters need to be punished," Hunt had told FOX Sports in November. "This is about what's right.

"I don't understand why they (the UFC) don't do something about it. The contract I sign says no doping but how about enforcing these contracts with harsher penalties."
