Brock Lesnar’s legal team has once again requested to have his hearing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission postponed.

The former UFC heavyweight champion was scheduled to meet with the NSAC Nov. 10, but hopes to meet with the commission no earlier than December. MMA Fighting reports these types of requests are typically granted.

ESPN was the first to report the news.

Lesnar is set to meet with NSAC after testing positive for clomiphene, an estrogen blocker, twice prior to his UFC 200 matchup against Mark Hunt in July. He faces a one-year ban from mixed martial arts. NSAC could also issue a fine on his $3 million purse and overturn his unanimous decision victory into a no contest.

Per documents obtained by MMA Fighting, Lesnar’s attorney is requesting a delayed hearing because the WWE Superstar is in the midst of having his foot cream tested for banned substances. He has already tested an eye medication independently, but was unable to prove that the medication was tainted with clomiphene.

Several fighters, including Jon Jones, Yoel Romero and Tim Means, have claimed tainted supplements were the source of their failed drug tests over the past year. Means and Romero reached a settlement with USADA for shortened suspensions, while Jones has gone to arbitration to receive a reduced ban as well.

While Lesnar may be suspended from MMA, he currently spends most of his days working with WWE as a professional wrestler. He has yet to indicate if he has an interest in returning to the Octagon, having only fought once in the last five years.
