Brock Lesnar

It has been confirmed recently by Paul Heyman and others close to UFC Heavyweight Champion and former WWE Champ Brock Lesnar that he has been suffering from mononucleosis. UFC head Dana White confirmed at a UFC press conference this weekend that Lesnar collapsed in Canada, and upon his arrival at hospital, doctors found that there were more complicating factors than simply the mono he'd been diagnosed with previously.

"He is not good," White confirms. "He is very, very sick, and he's going to be out for a while...He doesn't want to talk about it publicly, but he's in bad shape. He's not well. He's not going to be getting well anytime soon."

Lesnar is currently at the Mayo clinic undergoing further testing and treatment. White addressed the possibility of appointing an interim champion, saying it was not something he wanted to do but might need to for the fans and for the industry. First and foremost at this time, however, of course our thoughts are with Brock Lesnar, his wife Rena (the forner Sable in the WWE), and their 5-month old son Turk, born in June of this year. While not his biggest fan by any stretch, to hear of a young and healthy athlete with a young family taken so ill is always unfortunate.
