Dana White: Brock Lesnar is "not going to be getting well any time soon"
by John Morgan on Nov 14, 2009 at 8:15 pm ET
UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has already re-scheduled his bout with Shane Carwin twice. Now it appears to be off indefinitely.

At Saturday night's UFC 105 post-event press conference, UFC president Dana White said the mononucleosis that had been bothering Lesnar is still present, but the champ is now suffering a new set of illnesses, as well.

"I am worried about it," White said. "I can't really talk about it right now, but [Lesnar] is in rough shape. He's in really bad shape.

"I'm actually probably going to fly to go see him, and we're going to probably have to do some stuff to take care of this guy. He is not well, and he's not getting any better."

White said he wasn't sure how serious the new illnesses were and whether they could be career- or even life-threatening.

"I don't know," White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I've got to get him to one of these really good hospitals with really good doctors to figure out what's wrong and how we get him better."

White said Lesnar collapsed while spending time on a retreat in Canada and was checked into a hospital.

"[Lesnar] is in bad shape, and the reality is they don't really know all that's wrong with him," White said. "He owns a bunch of property in Canada. He went up to Canada just to get away from his house, to go up there and just kind of chill out up there.

"He [expletive] dropped. He went down, and he had to go to the hospital. They ran every test on the planet on him, and they ended up finding out something else was wrong with him."

White said he's not yet sure what the UFC will do regarding the heavyweight division with its champion on the shelf for an indeterminable amount of time.

"If it's a long wait, we're gong to have to do something," White said. "We're going to have to – the last thing I ever want to do is strip a guy who won a title. That's the last thing I want to do. I don't know if we'll have to do an interim or what we'll do to fix it."

White said there's still more questions than answers surrounding his heavyweight champion, but one thing was certain: Lesnar will be on the shelf for the foreseeable future.

"He is not good," White said. "He is very, very sick, and he's going to be out for a while.

"He doesn't want to talk about it publicly, but he's in bad shape. He's not well. He's not going to be getting well anytime soon.
Sounds really bad, wonder if we won't see Velasquez/Carwin for interim at 108?

Ya the way that Dana is talking sounds like life threatening illness or something. Hopefully he makes it out alright with a full recovery.

You obviously haven't seen that the Nog Cain fight is canceled due to Nog having staph again.

It is worrying. Whenever somebody's huge like Brock and is reported to be very ill, I start worrying about liver cancer or something.

Damn, hope it isn't as serious as Dana is making it sound. Hopefully he just got dehydrated from the mono or something.

According to TSN and a quote from Dana he doesn't have cancer

"He doesn't have cancer or AIDS or anything like this, (but) he's got some problems, man."
Also Carwin will not be fighting Nog at 108 as he has undergone his MRI and surgery so needs time to recover.

The HW division just got messed up.

"(It's) bad, to the point now that it's in his bloodstream," White said. "He's probably going to have to be hospitalized and intravenously given antibiotics."

Whatever that is suppose to mean? Antibiotics, some sort of infection...
I think Dana is referring to Nog's staph in this quote. If staph gets in your blood, it can very easily kill you, especially if it's MRSA, and does not respond to antibiotics.

Hopefully its not Staph, staph can be brutal if your immune system is already weakened (like by mono), my boss was telling me his freinds kid got a staph infection and the swine flu at the same time and the staph has started attacking the kids brain, at 18 they figure he has only a few days.

I bet he's got some kind of brain disease, menangitis maybe. Rolling around on the ground with sweaty dudes is a pretty easy way to spread diseases.

Sounds really awful. I hope Brock will be alright. Anybody reckon it could be related to his past experiences with steroids? A lot of ex WWE stars who were renowned for juicing died fairly young in their mid/late thirties of heart attacks and freak illnesses.

Wow that really sucks, poor guy. Gets mono then hit with something else? As if mono isn't shitty enough.

And with Nog being out too, that's so crappy.


This card tonite was pretty boring, next week's card sounds pretty boring too, and now there's only like, Penn vs Sanchez and GSP vs Winner of Swick/Hardy to get excited about?
