It’s been a busy few days for Brock Lesnar. Firstly, he split Randy Orton’s head open at the end of their Summer Slam pay per view fight, leaving his opponent needing 10 stitches. Then he was slapped with a UFC ban by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Well, now he faces repercussions from the incident with Orton. He has been handed a $500 fine for what they have called a “brutal” assault.
