As a follow up to our previous article about Brock Lesnar's failed drug test at UFC 200, the saga continues. 

According to TMZ sports, "Brock Lesnar was just hit with a 1 year suspension and massive $250k fine for two failed drug tests at UFC 200.

Lesnar beat Mark Hunt at 200 on July 9 in Vegas. It was later announced that Brock failed two drug tests; one leading up, and the other the night of the fight. The Nevada State Athletic Commission Thursday announced Lesnar's punishment ($250k fine, year suspension) ... but it's not all bad news for Brock.

The suspension -- which could've been longer -- was retroactively started in July ... meaning he's eligible to fight again in a few months. Brock wasn't the only superstar fighter who had their day of reckoning ... Nate Diaz was also handed down punishment for his UFC 202 news conference melee with Conor McGregor.

Nate's punishment was $50k plus 50 hours of community service.

FYI -- McGregor, for the same incident, was fined $75k and ordered to film an anti-bullying PSA ... along with community service."
