The unfortunate news came out late last week that the rescheduled UFC 108 main event between UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin has been officially postponed indefinitely. Lesnar has contracted mononucleosis, better known as the kissing disease.
According to multiple reports, since the bout’s original postponement from UFC 106, Lesnar has been unable to resume any sort of intense training without losing breath, which prompted Lesnar’s camp to formally call the bout off … for now.
Obviously, Carwin was disappointed with the news, however remains thankful that he will get his opportunity at winning the richest prize in the sport.
According to Carwin, the UFC has guaranteed that he will be getting his title shot as soon as Lesnar regains his health.
“The UFC has told me is that I have earned the title shot but I have to wait for the title holder,” Carwin wrote on his blog.
It was originally rumored that Lesnar contracted the “Swine Flu” and that was what caused the former WWE wrestler of the November 21st inside the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
As of now, there is not timetable for Lesnar’s return, or when the world’s biggest MMA show will re-reschedule their scrap.
