It looks like Brock Lesnar’s love for hunting has landed him in a little hot water with the law in Alberta, Canada.
102.1 CJCY-FM radio reported today that Lesnar is facing three violations of the Alberta Fish and Wildlife Act after a recent hunting trip to Alberta.
Fish and Wildlife officers confirmed the international celebrity has been charged with three counts in contravention to the Alberta Fish and Wildlife Act. The charges came before Medicine Hat Provincial Court Thursday morning and include improper affixation of tags, spoilage of skin and edible flesh and possession of a controlled animal.
I’m not sure how serious the charges are (they don’t sound too serious) and what punishments could accompany them, but the good news is the matter has been pushed until January 19 so it shouldn’t affect his fight with Alistair Overeem at UFC 141.
I have to say, with all of Overeem’s issues with his management, his ailing mother, drug tests and now this, it sure seems like a lot of bullets have been dodged for this fight. Considering the UFC’s horrible luck with all the other big fights they’ve tried to put together this year, it’s going to feel like a Christmas miracle if these two behemoths make it to the cage on Dec. 30. Quick, everyone go tell Santa you want Lesnar vs. Overeem for Christmas. Maybe that will help.
