Brock Lesnar has had one hell of a six weeks, going from beating Mark Hunt at UFC 200 and then failing two separate USADA drug tests to busting Randy Orton's head open with some vicious elbows at SummerSlam.

Because of those failed drug tests, Lesnar is looking at a big suspension that will keep him out of the fight game for a while.

And that suspension will potentially be starting from right now.

According to a report from Shaheen Al-Shatti, a writer for popular UFC website MMA Fighting, Lesnar has been temporarily banned.

"Brock Lesnar has been temporarily suspended for his two UFC 200 drug testing failures. Official hearing at a later date," the reporter tweeted out earlier today.

This temporary suspension is just in place until Lesnar can have his proper hearing at a later date, which will still almost certainly be a month or two away because of how slow everything tends to move.

The 39-year-old tested positive for the banned substance clomiphene, an anti-estrogen agent, in an out-of-competition drug test administered by USADA on June 28 as well as an in-competition test taken at UFC 200.

Estrogen blockers are usually taken by fighters who are coming off testosterone cycles, and they are on the USADA banned list.

Lesnar's win over Mark Hunt - which was originally via unanimous decision - will likely be changed to a no-contest in Hunt's favor.
