MEDICINE HAT, Alberta (AP) - Former UFC heavyweight champion and professional wrestler Brock Lesnar has resolved hunting charges against him in Canada.

Lesnar pleaded guilty Tuesday to failing to affix a tag to a mule deer he had shot on a filmed hunt in Alberta in November 2010.

Ramona Robins, the chief crown prosecutor for Medicine Hat, Alberta, says she withdrew charges of spoilage and illegal possession of wildlife. Lesnar's guide still faces charges.

Robins says Lesnar paid a fine of 1,500 Canadian dollars, which is about $1,450. Lesnar, who lives in Alexandria, Minn., also is suspended from hunting in Alberta for six months.

In a statement released by his agent, Lesnar says he is glad to put the matter behind him.

Lesnar next fights Dec. 30 against Alistair Overeem in Las Vegas.
