At the weekend this was being reported as a life threatening illness but looks like things are a lot less gloomy now, still might be the end of his UFC career though.

Quote:
Ultimate Fighting Championship star Brock Lesnar was recovering Tuesday after surgery related to a bacterial infection in his intestinal tract, UFC president Dana White said.

“Leaving Bismarck, N.D., right now. Brock had minor surgery and is feeling better,” White wrote on his Twitter account. “Not 100 per cent sure he is out of the woods but feeling better.”

White confirmed Monday that Lesnar was suffering from a bacterial infection.

WCCO-TV, a CBS affiliate in Minneapolis, reported that Lesnar was suffering from a severe case of diverticulitis, a common digestive disease often found in the large intestine.

Diverticulitis develops from diverticulosis, which involves the formation of pouches (diverticula) on the outside of the colon. Diverticulitis results if one of the pouches becomes inflamed.

Normal treatment includes no solid food, plenty of IV fluids and broad-spectrum antibiotics. After release from the hospital, patients will typically be placed on a low-fibre diet to give the colon time to recover.

Surgery is usually avoided for patients experiencing a first attack, unless the condition is serious as this one appears to be. In some cases surgery may be required to remove the area of the colon with the diverticula.

If the infection were to spread to the lining of the abdominal cavity, it could cause a potentially fatal inflammation.

Lesnar has twice had to delay a UFC heavyweight title defence versus Shane Carwin. The first bout was scheduled for UFC 106 last weekend, but was postponed after Lesnar was diagnosed with mononucleosis. The match was rescheduled for UFC 108 in January, but is now on hold indefinitely.

White said Monday he was encouraging Lesnar to check into the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., for further treatment. He also said he did not know when or if the 32-year-old South Dakota native will return to the action.

“It depends on how serious this is,” White told The Associated Press.

White, speaking to TMZ on Monday, said: “There’s a possibility Lesnar will never fight again.”

Here's an update on the situation:

Quote:
According to the UFC President Dana White, we may know in a month if the UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar will need to undergo a major surgery. Brock Lesnar is currently suffering from ravages of the intestinal disease diverticulitis.

White said that if Lesnar needed the surgery, a temporary pause of Lesnar’s UFC Heavyweight title would happen and the title given to another superstar until Lesnar is fit.

According to an interview reported by MMAWeekly.com, Greg Nelson (Lesnar’s trainer) said "[Brock is] walking around and moving around. He’s not ready to jump into that cage, that’s for sure at this point…. I’m not 100 percent sure right now [when he'll start training again]. We’re not really pushing it right now. We’re just letting things take their course so he can be 100-percent healthy when he starts to train. He’ll probably start lifting weights to get his strength built up and do the exercise bike when he starts to get going, and shadowbox when he gets to feel better. But right now, he’s just taking the time to properly heal."

I efl'd at them referring to the competitors as 'superstars'. This isn't wrestling!

Brock lesner is a real bag of hammers if you couldn't have figured that out already, from a boony north suburb, every time he comes home girls get date raped. what ever "illness" is plaguing him its definitely a cover for some kind of drug thing. fuck that dude and dudes like him.

Just retired. Maybe He is overrated. But gotta give props to a guy and his accomplishment. Not an all time great but definitely a good fighter.
