Brock Lesnar/Mark Hunt stare down before UFC 200 fight

 

In July of 2016, Brock Lesnar did the unthinkable when he decided to return to mixed martial arts organization Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) while still under contract for the professional wrestling company, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). Somehow, Brock Lesnar was able to convince the WWE to let him return to the octagon for a real fight against accomplished striker Mark Hunt. At UFC 200, Brock Lesnar defeated Mark Hunt in a fairly one-sided fight. However, it was soon discovered, through the pre-fight drug testing, that Brock Lesnar had been taking UFC-banned substances before the fight against Mark Hunt. However, the test results were not available until after the fight, so Brock Lesnar was allowed to compete at the time. Due to using the banned substances before the fight, Brock Lesnar’s win over Mark Hunt was retroactively turned into a no contest, as Mark Hunt was unknowingly fighting a competitor with an unfair advantage. During the investigation of the drug tests, Brock Lesnar had returned to the WWE. Even after it was revealed that Brock Lesnar was indeed using UFC-banned substances, the WWE still allowed him to perform. Brock Lesnar has since retired from the UFC, for a second time, and has continued his success in WWE, even winning the company’s Universal Championship.
