And so the Brock Lesnar illness saga continues. According to Dana White’s Twitter, the UFC heavyweight champ is out of "minor surgery" and beginning to feel better. Since the surgery was presumably designed to help deal with a bacterial infection in his intestinal tract, it’s hard to imagine that there could anything too minor about it. Where I come from, wisdom tooth extraction = minor, anything having to do with intestines = major.
At least the surgery sounds like it went well and now White can finally get out of Bismarck. Meanwhile, every other fighter in the UFC is forced to ask himself, what would it take for Dana to come visit me in a place like North Dakota? The answer, of course, depends on who you are. Georges St. Pierre? Probably wouldn’t take much more than a mild heart attack. Tito Ortiz? There’d better be some exposed brain matter involved. Kendall Grove? Unless aliens show up and declare him their emperor for life, DW isn’t even getting out of bed.
