Brock Lesnar facing charges in Canada stemming from recent hunting trip

via cdn2.sbnation.com

Brock Lesnar will be doing some big game hunting at UFC 141 on Dec. 30 when he puts former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem in his sights in Las Vegas, Nevada, hoping to earn another crack at the UFC heavyweight title.

A recent hunting trip to Canada, though, has landed Lesnar in some hot water.

CJCYFM.com has the details:

Fish and Wildlife officers confirmed the international celebrity has been charged with three counts in contravention to the Alberta Fish and Wildlife Act. The charges came before Medicine Hat Provincial Court Thursday morning and include improper affixation of tags, spoilage of skin and edible flesh and possession of a controlled animal.

Lesnar was on the docket in Medicine Hat Provincial Court today but failed to appear in person. The good news, as far as his bout on Dec. 30 goes, is that the matter has been pushed back to Jan. 19, 2012.

So, while Overeem has had to deal with drug test issues and his mother facing another cancer scare back home, Lesnar has multiple hunting charges hanging over his head.

Here's to hoping no one slips on a banana peel at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on fight night.
