Lesnar retires from mixed martial arts
Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has informed the mixed martial arts promotion that he is retired from competition.
The UFC confirmed the former heavyweight champion’s decision Wednesday.
Lesnar, 39, returned from a 4.5-year MMA absence last July to beat Mark Hunt at UFC 200, but the result was overturned after Lesnar failed two doping tests. He was subsequently suspended from competition for a year by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which administers the UFC’s doping policy.
