"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.
Thanks. Doesn't look too good.

Looks like Brock will end up like a one-fight sensation and that's about it - no legacy in MMA whatsoever except for historic UFC 100 and shameful actions afterwards. In his age such a long layoff is disastrous.

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

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.
The biggest threat to Mir as the HW champion is Brock. With Brock gone I don't see any HWs being a legitimate threat to him. I think he'll get the belt and hold it.

It sucks in the sense that he won't redeem himself but it's good for him in the sense that his worst match up is gone.

Especially if all the steroid lunatics around here are right. Even if they're not, you gotta figure he's gonna lose a lot of weight and his size was probably his biggest advantage.

How about being one of the only fighters in MMA history to beat two top 3 ranked opponents, a top 20 ranked opponent and win a title in his first five fights and moving all the way up 2nd ranked in the world.

That's equal to walking into the NBA with virtually no experience and being one of the best players.

It's unheard of. I'm pretty disgusted at how even now people are still trying to discredit his accomplishments.

So you don't think that a digestive disorder and major surgery that makes EVERYBODY lose weight would be responsible for it and instead you're going to play the steroids card?

Give me a break.

Maybe the word "lunatics" should have given you a clue that I'm skeptical? At any rate, steroids or not, he loses weight. If he comes into a fight smaller than Mir he loses it.

I hope this is all just hype and BS. With Lesnar out (unless the Fedor rumors are legit) the HW division suddenly gets a lot thinner.

Point taken sorry to attack you. Just hoping to educate some people here on the subject.

For those claiming that Brock's illness is steroid related: There is NO link at all between diverticulitis and anabolic steroids.

Article on it here.
http://mmajunkie.com/news/17442/ask-...rticulitis.mma


Anyway..

This is just something that fighter bashers tried to prove by typing in "steroids" and "diverticulitis" into the google search engine after news about Brock came out: What comes up is some medical text stating that steroids can mask the symptoms of diverticulitis, but the steroids they are referring to are medical use cortisol steroids that reduce swelling in the body and can mask the symptoms of the disease.

They are not to be confused with anabolic steroids which are completely different and have no effect on the disease whatsoever.

There is no connection between anabolic steroids and diverticulitis (which is a digestive disorder) whatsoever, and I would challenge anybody to find any medical text supporting the fact that there is.

...Damn that sucks. I was really hoping that Lesnar would face Carwin. The two superpowers. It is what it is. This is a major setback for sure. I wish Brock all the best and hope he returns someday soon in crushing fashion...

That's legitimate. I like to give fighters the benefit of the doubt (i've yet to see some "everyone uses steroids" guy on this board support it with enough factual evidence). But Brock will lose weight because of his illness (which sucks, but I consider it fair to compare it with Mir's accident). With Mir's weight gained and Lesnar's weight lost I see Mir winning a rubber match; I think he wins a rubber match anyway but that might just be the Mir fan in me.

What kind of bugs me about this whole thing is how the WWE will have some kind of loony eternal hold on the UFC HW title if Lesnar is out. And that's one reason I want Lesnar back. He's a top 5 HW and he should be fighting. Any doctors on this board?
