Brock Lesnar Issued Medical Suspension

Brock Lesnar has been issued a six month medical suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his fight last Friday at UFC 141 in Las Vegas.

The suspension wouldn’t allow him to compete until June 28th, however, is a technicality because of his retirement.

Lesnar suffered an abdominal injury due to kicks from Alistair Overeem who beat him in the first round of their heavyweight fight.

    what did he do to get suspended?

    • Bault16

      In boxing or mma, usually after any fight there is some type of “suspension” for a fighters safety, so they can’t fight to soon after. Standard procedure

        Some fighters don’t get any sort f suspension, depending on the outcome and actual leanth of the fight. Look back to Chris Leban in the summer of 2010. He fought twice in a 3 week period. Frank Mir would have been allowed to fight Brock if Overeem was unable to pass his required drug tests. Mir had fought only 3 weeks prior.

      It’s a medical suspension which means he got hurt and can’t fight for 6 months but he’s retired now so it really don’t matter

  • Raviv

    Steroids are fake.

    your right who cares about the medical suspension if he is retired anyway. Even if he was still in UFC that 6 months off is about the length of time we would see him in between fights.

  • spike westphal

    i guess he can't have a match at wrestlemaina 28 then

    • GODSENT83

      He’s suspended in NV not FL

    • Nostaljack

      His suspension likely has nothing to do with wrestling. Totally different thing altogether…

    You get a six month “vacation” when you lose an mma match…. It isn’t dealers to anything…

  • Steve

    Dealers means involved. Stupid iPhone autocorrect.

  • dea3641

    It’s called a medical suspension. In real sports, such as MMA, they give out medical suspensions(pretty much all competitors on an mma card) so they can’t train and injure themselves further after a fight. Has nothing at all to do with steroids. Not even close.

      Exactly what he said. Anyone with cuts, broken bones, concussions get it. Lesnar probably did break a rib like he thought he may have. He's not the only one that got suspended, either:

      Alistair Overeem – Suspended until Feb. 14 with no contact prior to Jan. 30 due to cuts on right eye.

    Brocks a Fake…Nothing but a steroid-jacked hype ass !!!

    Athlete retirements change like the weather and the Nevada Athletic Commission has to be ‘seen’ to be looking after the physical wellbeing of fighters/boxers after competing. If a fighter got back in the ring shortly after a match and was injured, everyone would point the finger at the authorities asking why you let them do this.
