While UFC 200 was supposed to be a time of celebration for the organisation, the event was marred by anti-doping violations with Jon Jones forced to pull out beforehand, and Brock Lesnar’s violations came to light after the event.
Although Lesnar is currently preparing for his WWE SummerSlam match against Randy Orton, he’s still waiting to see the outcome of his case, which is still pending with both the Nevada Athletic Commission and USADA, both of which have jurisdiction over his fight.
NOT RULING IT OUT
While Lesnar could still yet face a lengthy ban from the sport, he hasn’t completely ruled out a return to the Octagon and admits he has a bumpy road ahead of him.

Speaking to TMZ Sports in an interview to promote WWE 2K17, Lesnar said: “I got a few challenges to overcome before I get there, but I don’t know. Right now I’m going to focus on my WWE career.
“I wanted to step back into the Octagon and avenge my loss against diverticulitis. Sunday, I’m facing Randy Orton at SummerSlam, and that’s all on my mind.
“To my fans that watch me in the Octagon, I thank them for their support. This has been a bumpy road; I’m going to get through this alright.
“There will be a day, maybe, that they may see me back in the Octagon.”
The UFC stars and fans will have a lot to say, should Lesnar ever step foot inside of the Octagon again. None more so than Mark Hunt, who has remained vocal regarding Lesnar’s anti-doping violation following his loss to The Beast.
He’s still a huge draw for both the WWE and the UFC, so when the dust settles, and he overcomes a potential ban from the sport, it won’t be a surprise to see him back inside of the Octagon again.
