According to Brock Lesnar‘s jiu-jitsu coach, Rodrigo "Comprido" Medeiros, the big man is healing up after his surgery and will "be fighting again within six months." That means Lesnar-Carwin could take place this spring, and there will be no need for an interim title or any other such nonsense. Great, right? Only maybe we should consider the possibility, however minor, that "Comprido" is substituting blind optimism for medical knowledge.
If we can believe what Dana White says, Lesnar had a hole in his intestine that was leaking stuff into his stomach. I’m no more a doctor than I am a jiu-jitsu world champion, but that sounds like the kind of thing that could sideline a man for a little while. Even if the surgery was completely successful in repairing the problems, Lesnar will probably need to rest for a little while before returning to the kind of intense training that might prepare him for a title defense.
In other words, let’s take this six month promise with a grain of salt. While it’s believable that Lesnar may heal much faster than your average mortal, it’s also possible that he might need more time to put this behind him and get in shape to defend a heavyweight championship. Especially after what those Canadian doctors did to him.
