I want to see Brock losing his belt inside the cage not just relinquishing it due to his illness. By the time he comes back, Lesnar won't be as intimidating fighter as he seemed on UFC 100, I believe.

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

You don't know the half of it.

I was on Sherdog yesterday, and professional fighter David Marshall was posting and he actually said this news brought a smile to his face and that he was glad that Brock might not ever be the same fighter.

I would expect that from your usual Sherdog troll but a professional fighter?

That's pretty sickening. He went on about some BS how Brock doesn't care about martial arts, not a real martial artist blah, blah... unfair that he has physical advantages blah, blah (clearly jealous).

What a dick.

I'm not saying Diverticulitis is a walk in the park, it isn't, it is painful and nasty, but the only real factor for Lesnar should be time. Given enough time to train and recover, he should be 100% again with no real difficulty. Dana just wants to make it sound like he recovered from terminal brain cancer, aids and brain sucking aliens all at the same time to hype his return. Odds are overwhelming that he will be fine, it will just take awhile.
Yes, diverticulitis is very treatable.

However, correct me if I am wrong, but didn't he have a perforation in his colon? They need to remove a piece of your colon to fix that.

My brother had colon cancer and they had to remove 1/3 of his colon. He had titanium rings (i believe titanium) put in for support. You can't fight if you have multiple rings.

Also, they cut through muscle when they do a surgery like that. My brother couldnt even do a pushup for almost 4 months. He was IC4A champion in discuss, so he's no slouch physically.

Mir actually had to re-learn how to walk after his Motercycle accident. When compared to that I doubt Brock's ailment will be that difficult for him to overcome. I'd say that much to disdain of his haters, he'll be back as strong as ever within a year.

My uncle was an athlete and lost over 100 pounds due to a major brain operation, and he put it all back on within a year and was competing again, and he was in his 40's.

No the perforation was in his intestine.

I hope your right man.

I had the same thing happen to me 9 years ago. My colon perforated just a few days after discovering I had diverticulitis. I had to have emergency surgery which lasted 4 hours. They removed about a foot of my colon.

The healing process can be quite long due to infection and the fact that the muscle walls have to heal up from surgery. That infection just wouldn't go away when I went through my ordeal with this.

I had to have a temporary colostomy for 3 months until all of the infection was gone...it was a daily battle and it makes you INCREDIBLY weak.

If there was a perforation, he is VERY sick and it's gonna take quite a bit of time to get better. My body has never been the same since my experience.

I hope for the best for Brock. I wouldn't wish what he is going through on anyone.

Wow that sounds pretty terrible. Sorry to hear about that man.

Don't think we should jump to conclusions about a perforation in Brock's colon. There have been zero reports indicating such. All information right now points to him having minor surgery on a perforated intestine.

Who knows what the true extent of the damage is though as it was going on for a year and everybody is remaining very tight lipped on details.

Quick update from Meltzer on f4wonline.com regarding Dana's twitter comments about Brock.

- Says Brock is not necessarily that sick right now, but is still not out of the woods regarding intestinal issues casting some doubts on when or if he'll return.

- Says him returning in six months is optimistic and probably wishful thinking.
