Shoot Henry: (2/16/17) Beast, Out




Brock Lesnar has announced his retirement from MMA a second time, months after failing two drug tests regarding his UFC 200 bout against Mark Hunt.

Which was a shame, since he employed a very strategic gameplan against one of the scariest strikers in the business.

He notified the UFC of his decision and has been removed from the USADA drug testing pool, thus freezing his one-year suspension. This was after his name was removed from the UFC official roster due to one of the biggest purges in the company's history, with 35 fighters being getting their walking papers, including Team Lakay fighter, Roldan Sangcha-an. Should Lesnar ever decide to return to fighting, he will still have to serve the remainder of his suspension, which would have ended July 15, 2017.

I'm sure he's broken up about the whole suspension thing.

Brock Lesnar ends his MMA career with a record of 5-3 with one No Contest and two successful defenses of his UFC Heavyweight belt.
