Last week, the Nevada Athletic Commission announced that Brock Lesnar would receive a one-year suspension, fined $250,000, and have his win against Mark Hunt overturned to a no contest. Since then, there have been many in both the MMA and professional wrestling world have weighed in. In the latest edition of the Heated Conversations: Hosted By Booker T, the WWE Hall of Famer provided his take on the situation.
“Well, I’ll tell you, me personally, being an athlete, I’m always going to go out and represent. I’m going to go out there and fight fair and square. Now, Brock went out [and] he did something wrong, right? In the fight game, if you do something wrong, you should get punished for it. Am I right or wrong? $250,000, a year suspension, and what else? And they took the win away from [the] Mark Hunt [fight]. Okay. This is the way I look at it, right here. Brock Lesnar made $2.5 million minus $250,000, that’s $2.25 [million], and a vacation for a year. He probably wasn’t coming back [to UFC] for a year anyway. Do you know what I mean? And to take away my win from Mark Hunt, I’d take that. Do you know what I’m saying? Do you know what I mean? If I did something wrong, yeah, alright, I’ll take that. ‘Do you know what? Hold the check and just take out what you guys [want] and just give me the rest of it. Do you know what I mean? That’s cool.'”
