With a big question mark hanging over the potential date of the highly anticipated heavyweight championship clash between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin due to the champion coming down with a nasty case of mono, it now appears that Lesnar’s current battle is taking place far away from the Octagon.
UFC President Dana White recently revealed the unfortunate news concerning Brock’s current medical situation when addressing the media following UFC 105, and it’s not sounding good.
“He’s in a hospital up in North Dakota somewhere right now,” explained Dana. “He went to Canada and some bad stuff happened to him, so we’ve got to figure it out.
“He doesn’t want to talk about it publicly, but he’s in bad shape. He’s not well and he’s not going to be getting well anytime soon.”
When asked if Lesnar’s current problem’s cant be attributed to the recent report of mononucleosis, White wouldn’t limit it to that alone, explaining, “He has other problems too. He is not good. He is very, very sick and he’s going to be out for a while.”
According to the UFC President, there’s no question about it; the situation is one for concern, and there are stills questions that need answering.
“I am worried about it,” explained White. “You know, I can’t really talk about it right now, but he’s in rough shape. He’s in really bad shape. We’re going to have to do some stuff to take care of this guy. He is not well and he’s not getting any better.
“We’re going to have to send him to the Mayo Clinic or to Scripp’s, or one of those really good hospitals to figure out what’s wrong with this guy.”
