UFC Rumorwatch: Lesnar’s Condition Not Improving, Next Opponents for Penn and Daley

(Photo courtesy of TheSun)

From a recent post on Brock Lesnar‘s official Facebook page:

NEW UPDATE!! Brock has had more problems (we can’t say what they are) and he could be out all of this year if things don’t get better. Brock wants to thank all of his fans for their support and for the nice messages so thanks guys.

Though we’ve yet to see the official update that we were promised this week, let this be your advance warning that Lesnar won’t be returning this summer. In other unconfirmed news…

SI’s Josh Gross hears that Frankie Edgar will get the next shot at BJ Penn‘s lightweight belt in April, regardless of Gray Maynard‘s performance against Nate Diaz at UFC Fight Night 20 on Monday. Edgar (11-1, 6-1 UFC), most recently submitted Matt Veach at the TUF 10 finale, holds wins over Sean Sherk, Hermes Franca, and Tyson Griffin, and previously lost a decision to Maynard in April 2008.

— According to MMA Live host Jon Anik, a match between knockout artist Paul Daley and perennial top contender Josh Koscheck is being discussed for May or June. Between Daley’s recent destructions of Martin Kampmann and Dustin Hazelett, and Koscheck’s wins over Frank Trigg and Anthony Johnson, both guys have a lot of heat behind them right now. Feels like a #1 welterweight contender fight to us…

rumour around here has it that brock has been doing soem hunting up in northern British Columbia, the province that Vancouver is in. I have family up north and they say that people in the town have seen brock out hunting.

You Brock haters are lame. The dude brought overdue excitement to the HW div. He put asses in the seats. So many claim Brock is getting what he gave. So does the bad karma stop with you?
you just got pieced up homey- January 7, 2010 at 2:33 pm
Dude did you not see kos get destroyed by GSP last time? He ran a train on him like a Jenna Jamison video and he's only gotten better since then. Sorry I know we all have dreams but I don't see this one happening buddy.

I agree with you on Lesnar though. I never liked the guy. He's a giant meat head with no ground game except lay and pray and masturbation punches. Good bye and good ridance Brockie

Just saw Brandon "The joke" Vera in the banner above, maybe him and cock chestnar should fight. hahaha.
Sunburned- January 7, 2010 at 1:57 pm
Enough of Lesnar already, ugh. Who cares?
We have the "Don't be a cock chestnar" line and the phallic tattoo jokes already.

There's only two logical ways to solve the problem that is BJ Penn in the UFC's 155# division.

Solution A: Let his opponents enter the ring with one weapon of their choosing. Ballbats, shotguns, ICBMs, whatever.

Solution B: 2 vs. 1. It didn't always work against the Undertaker, but it may just work here. With Gray Maynard laying on him and Frankie Edgar punching him, BJ might have to try hard for once.

I cant help but feel that Brock not getting better is kinda manifest destiny. Brock made the choice to be a dick and thus a lot of people don't like him and didn't want him to succeed.---DESTINY FULFILLED !RAWR!
mckellion- January 7, 2010 at 11:59 am
Also maynard should be up against BJ its shockin

An semtex vs koshcheck will be amazin
mckellion- January 7, 2010 at 11:57 am
shame about brock tbh
i would have liked to see him return.

Dos santos is 1 to lookout for! i can see either him or Cain or Mir fighting for the belt in the future

I would love to see Nick Diaz vs. Penn @ 170 :-)

Could be interesting..... or very one sided..... BJ could bring some of that Hawaii dank for them to enjoy after the battle :-)
SweetAfflictionShirt- January 7, 2010 at 11:08 am
Bullshit. Give Maynard his due. This is supposed to be a sport.
Get Off Me- January 7, 2010 at 10:26 am
It was a jab for the nutthugger thing :)
There are no real threats at lightweight, only match-ups that may be interesting.
I also did know that Maynard was a great wrestler and that he lost to Diaz before, but I was saving that for later. Maynard has improved by leaps and bounds, he deserves respect after the Heurta fight and like I said he is favoured, it should be a good fight(FOTN, SOTN or KOTN most likely) and this would be the sixth, if i'm not wrong, FOTN or SOTN for Diaz in a row.
Nice that we get a freebie too, enjoy the fights.

ChuckLiddellsMohawk- January 7, 2010 at 10:22 am
As much as i like Frankie, he will get owned by BJ and in no way deserves a title shot yet, i would rather see Maynard vs BJ. Also think Daley will get overpowered by Kos, Daley vs Alves first please!
Dubya- January 7, 2010 at 10:21 am
Good point.. i forgot about his fights on The Ultimate Fighter! Seriously though.. who gets caught in a guillotine choke twice?? It can happen once to anybody.. but twice? If he does.. he deserves to sit on the sidelines while Franky Edgar fights for the title :)

Maynard's standup was sharp against Huerta.. I don't see this going to the mat too much. We'll see though.

None of these guys stand a chance against BJ anyway. Besides the Huerta fight.. all of Maynard's have been kinda boring to watch. Let's hope his fight against Diaz will be fun to watch at least.
That Guy- January 7, 2010 at 10:14 am
Seconded. I hope we never see him fight again. Actually... I hope I never see him again, period
Dubya- January 7, 2010 at 10:09 am
@Get Off Me
It's Dubya... not Dudya.. but i'm not sure if that was an intentional jab at me :)

We will def revisit this on Tuesday my friend. But don't get me wrong.. I really like Diaz as a fighter. He is always entertaining and always brings it. I respect that. I just don't see him being a threat at 155 until he works on his wrestling. How many pure BJJ guys are holding belts right now? Same goes for Mir.

I agree with you on the fact that both Diaz Bros are fun to watch for sure.

Most of you are such little pussies.
greg_snoke- January 7, 2010 at 9:50 am
Brock is just a fake little BITCH he just knows mir will kill him
agentsmith- January 7, 2010 at 9:43 am
Since when does Brock have a Facebook page? I thought he always said he doesn't even own a computer. I smell a fake.
Get Off Me- January 7, 2010 at 9:28 am
U rarely get owned in a fight on the night and yes I found the Guida v. Diaz fight to be a prime example of how hugging vs. active submission off the back wins everytime(I don't hate guida everyone), that's how the Sanchez v. Guida fight was closer than it should have been(exclude the head kick from Sanchez and it was almost a carbon copy of the Diaz v. Guida fight) but i digress.
BJ would probably own Diaz on the ground(the prodigy) but I just think it would be a good little scrap anyway and isn't that what it's all about for us fans?
imakeutap- January 7, 2010 at 9:26 am

Diaz already beat Maynard so what makes it not believable. He was a standout wrestler back then as well. Just an off night, huh?
Lavacon- January 7, 2010 at 9:18 am
Yeah, you are right.... Diaz lost 2 decisions to a couple of wrestlers who pretty much laid on him for 3 rounds. Neither one of them really hurt Diaz and at least he was going for a submission. I would love to see BJ against a l lanky BJJ artist who's not afraid to try using it. Don't even mention Florian, he didn't use a lick of BJJ in his loss. When these guys stop trying to brawl with Penn they will be better off.
jimbonics- January 7, 2010 at 9:16 am
I guess I'll be the first to say it...

I hope Brock never fights again.
Get Off Me- January 7, 2010 at 9:14 am
What can I say the 514 has got that good stuff.
Diaz did get out wrestled by Stevenson and Guida, both were fight of the night if memory serves me correct(and it may not...) but which is a main reason I like Diaz. Name me another guy who finishes fights via Arabian death choke.
Diaz is definitely not favoured to beat Maynard, I will not proclaim he will, I just got a feeling he may pull it off and as for BJ, nobody stands a chance right now at 155, it would be about match making more than anything and I think Diaz v. BJ would be a good fight, even if BJ hands Diaz a first class spank like all others before him at 155.
What can I say, I like Nate Diaz, I like both brothers a ton and they put on great fights, if I'm huggin' their nuts that's just the way it goes I suppose. Don't get it twisted though, I'm not on a soap box saying Diaz will win the lightweight championship. We can re-visit this Diaz character on Tuesday when his fight with Maynard is history.
Dubya- January 7, 2010 at 8:58 am
@Get Off Me
Dude.. can you get me some of that stuff you've been smoking? Good shit I presume based off your recent comments. Diaz vs.BJ?! Are you fucking serious man? Diaz got owned by Joe Daddy.. who in return got destroyed in one of the bloodiest debacles i have ever witnessed in the cage against BJ. Diaz vs. BJ would just be criminal.

Also, it is going to take a miracle submission for Diaz to pull off a win against Maynard. Diaz got out wrestled by both Stevenson and Guida.. and in case you didn't know this.. Maynard is a standout wrestler and has won a majority of his fights with his wrestling alone.

Stop being a Diaz nuthugger and get back to reality brother.
