UFC heavyweight Brock Lesnar had his UFC 200 victory over Mark Hunt changed to a no-contest, and the popular pro wrestler was also hit with a $250,000 fine Thursday after he failed drug tests for banned substances.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission slapped Lesnar with the penalty, adding a one-year suspension, although it’s unclear if Lesnar will ever fight in the UFC again.

Before his fight, Lesnar took a jab at former light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones for failing a drug test, which got him booted from his scheduled main-event title shot at champion Daniel Cormier.

But afterward, Lesnar tested positive for the banned substance clomiphene, an estrogen blocker.

Additionally at the commission meeting, UFC 202 main-event fighter Nate Diaz was fined $50,000 and forced to serve 50 hours of community service for his role in a plastic-bottle-throwing melee during a news conference with Conor McGregor.
