If this is true, and he is out all of 2010, my guess is that he will probably never be champion in the UFC again. He will have went almost 2 years without fighting and with all the up and comers in the HW division, there is going to be people ahead of Brock in every way.

It's really too bad, I have been a huge fan of his since his WWE days and I was 12 years old.

This bodes well for Frank Mir. I'm not sure if there's anyone at HW that can beat him right now if Brock's out.

Exactly! I've been saying this since he first got sick and was rumored to be out for over 6 months. Not only would it make things less confusing, but it would be a smart move for the UFC with Brock.

Immediately coming back and facing a guy like Mir would be foolish, the UFC should bring him back and climb a similar short ladder as he did before. Even just ONE tune up fight would mean so much more money for them.

It's not like Mir got his shot as soon as he returned, he had to get beaten up by Marcio Cruz and Brandon Vera before he really got back into gear. I'm positive it wouldn't take Lesnar as long, but I still think he should be stripped of the title, and put on a similar path.

Everyone knows Brock likes to keep things quiet, so untill we hear from a reliable source that dosen't start with the words "rumour", i wouldn't believe a thing.

Not saying they should or shouldn't strip Lesnar, but Mir was clearly out for the long term from day 1 of his accident. Lesnar's case hasn't been so clear cut.

Dana said earlier in the week that this is the week they would find out if Brock needs a second surgery,

Today Dana said this:


"Brock asked me not to talk about it," he said. "I have to respect that."

When asked if he could make any statement at all about Lesnar, White was again uncharacteristically silent.

"No comment," he said. "First time in nine years I have ever said that."

Whatever the news is. It can't be good or the news would have come out already.

This sucks. Especially being a Brock fan, but I would say that this falls in line with the update on Facebook. I don't expect Brock will be back for at least 1.5-2 years if at all.

His second surgery will likely be to remove part of his colon (his first was to close a perforation in it), probably (a hopefully short term) colostomy job.

Not really good for Frank Mir, this is why Frank Mir was so upset about the prospect of Brock not coming back. If Brock does not return people will never view him as the true champion given that Brock left with the title, completely battered Mir for 98% of their two fights, and utterly dominated him at the biggest spectacle in MMA history at UFC 100. All Brock really needed was a bit of BJJ defense and he completely shut down Mir. Mir obviously want the chance to redeem himself and may not ever get that chance.
