It looks like Brock Lesnar will not be returning to the Octagon for another bout, as according to reports, the pro-wrestling star has notified the UFC of his retirement. The news comes not long after it was reported that Lesnar’s name had been removed from the UFC’s online roster.

Lesnar returned to the UFC last July and worked his way to a decision win over Mark Hunt. Shortly after, however, it was revealed that Lesnar had tested positive for the banned substance clomiphene and the heavyweight was eventually suspended for one year. The victory was also overturned to a no-contest.

USA Today Sports is reporting Lesnar has informed the UFC that he’s retiring, as is MMA Fighting. Due to his retirement, Lesnar will no longer remain in the USADA testing pool. If Lesnar were to decide he wants to fight again, he would need to serve the remaining time of his one year suspension.

The 39 year-old wrestler went 5-3 with 1 no-contest during his MMA career.
