UFC Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar, is in worse shape than initially expected.
Lesnar’s UFC 106 fight against Shane Carwin was postponed to UFC 108 on January 2 due to Lesnar contracting mononucleosis. Yesterday, UFC President Dana White told reporters at the UFC 105 post-fight press conference that a new date for the Lesnar/Carwin fight will have to wait – Lesnar appears to have more than just mononucleosis and the outlook is pretty dire.
“He’s in a hospital up in North Dakota somewhere right now,” said White. “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.”
It is unknown at this time what Lesnar’s additional illness is.
