Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, once again dealing with a serious health condition called diverticulitis, recently had to withdraw from a number one contender’s bout with fellow TUF 13 coach Junior dos Santos at UFC 131. But beyond that fight, the question has been whether or not Lesnar can overcome his illness and even be able to set foot in the Octagon again.
UFC president Dana White, talking to a flock of reporters following the UFC 130 prefight press conference, updated Lesnar’s situation.
“I talked to him a couple of days ago and his head is in a good place. He has an appointment (Thursday) at the Mayo Clnic and he’s gonna make some decisions on what he’s gonna do,” said White.
The UFC boss is hopeful that Lesnar can fight through his problems and make a return to the Octagon…
