Dana White: There’s a Possibility Brock Lesnar Will Never Fight Again

Brock Lesnar UFC 91 Weigh-InUFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, sidelined indefinitely from an undisclosed illness, is likely to require “major surgery” and may never fight again, UFC President Dana White today told

According to White, Lesnar, who is also suffering from mono, has been hospitalized since collapsing during a trip to Canada last week. He will reportedly be transferred to the Mayo Clinic, where he’d undergo surgery for a “intestinal disorder”.

While the TMZ report is in line with earlier rumors that the illness could be career threatening, MMA Weekly, citing a source from Lesnar’s camp, reported yesterday that the illness was “nothing life threatening” and was simply complications that could be treated with antibiotics.

Lesnar had been scheduled to fight Shane Carwin this Saturday at UFC 106, but withdrew from the bout late last month before being targeted for a January return that again fell through.

If Lesnar does require surgery and remains out for the foreseeable future, an interim heavyweight title matchup between Carwin and Cain Velasquez is likely to take place in February or March.
