From the Associated Press:
BISMARCK, N.D. — UFC President Dana White said Monday that heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar
is recovering from a bacterial infection in his intestinal tract. "He’s in stable condition and should be released soon," UFC President Dana White said.
Asked if Lesnar was in a Bismarck hospital, White said, "I think he is," but did not want to say which hospital because he wanted to protect Lesnar’s privacy.
White said he is encouraging Lesnar to check into the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., for further treatment. He also said he did not know if the 32-year-old South Dakota native will fight again. "It depends on how serious this is," White said…
White said Monday that Lesnar wanted to thank his fans for support. But he said it’s tough to tell how 6-foot-3, 265-pound Lesnar is feeling. "He’s never in good spirits and he’s not in good spirits now," White said.*
With an interim heavyweight title fight becoming increasingly likely, Heavy.com reports that Shane Carwin did not recently undergo knee surgery, and will be available to fight after UFC 108.
