It was dealt with.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has been suspended from mixed martial arts (MMA) by Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) following a pair of positive drug tests before and after UFC 200.

I guess the “creamy feet” defense came up short.

Lesnar, who flunked an out-of-competition exam ahead of his combat sports return, blew up his second drug test -- in competition -- for the “Tate vs. Nunes” pay-per-view (PPV) extravaganza, which took place earlier this year in Las Vegas, Nevada.

More on that fiasco here.

As a result, Lesnar will be forced to pay a $250,000 fine and his unanimous decision win over Mark Hunt is expected to be changed to a “no contest,” which may or may not mend a few fences for the “Super Samoan” (or not).

ESPN brought word of the ruling on Thursday.

While Lesnar will undoubtedly pay his fine (he can afford it), the suspension is unlikely to affect him. Not long after his short-lived return to the Octagon, the pro wrestling superstar resumed his full time — and perhaps permanent — duties with WWE.

Which has a much more forgiving policy on extracurricular activities.
