One of the biggest stories of 2009 has officially spilled into 2010 as UFC President Dana White recently admitted that the answers surrounding the future of the biggest draw in the sport will be determined in the coming days.
The news that something might be up with UFC heavyweight champion and former WWE megastar Brock Lesnar first showed it’s ugly face as a possible case of mononucleosis, the diagnosis quickly downgraded to a severe intestinal infection, to where it is currently: A big question mark.
According to White, the news surrounding the condition of Lesnar will be coming down by the end of next week.
“If the doctors say things are going well and going in the right direction, then hopefully in a couple months he’ll be back,” said White following UFC 108. “If he’s not, and the doctors say it’s not going in the right direction, then maybe he’ll have to retire or take a break for a couple of years.”
Lesnar has not seen action since his July mugging of Frank Mir at UFC 100.
Mir is currently expected to face off with Shane Carwin at UFC 111 in a bout that is anticipated for March to determine the promotion’s interim champion in Brock’s absence.
