Current reigning UFC champion Brock Lesnar is in very bad shape. The fighter is seriously ill and has been admitted to the hospital after collapsing in Canada, says UFC president Dana White.
“He’s in rough shape, he’s in really bad shape,” Dana White stated on Saturday following UFC 105.
“He is not well and he is not getting any better. He’s very, very sick and he’s going to be out for a while. He’s got a lot of problems.”
Saying that he had mononucleosis, Brock Lesnar, who is 32, postponed his title bout with Shane Carwin which had been scheduled for UFC 106 on November 21. The fight was rescheduled for UFC 108 on January 2, but that has been pushed back as well.
“He’s got mono and he’s got something else wrong with him. I know what’s wrong with him, he just doesn’t want me talking about it,” White said. “He doesn’t have cancer or AIDS or anything like this, (but) he’s got some problems, man.”
White said 265-pound Lesnar was currently staying at a hospital and may have to head to the Mayo Clinic or another facility “to figure out what’s wrong with this guy.”
“He’s not going to be getting well any time soon,” he said.
