More and more information regarding UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar’s health is slowly trickling out. According to doctors, Lesnar has had a problem with his intestines for over a year and that was the root cause of his contracting mononucleosis.
“His immune system has been trying to fight this thing and that’s why he was susceptible to getting sick,” White explained.
Strangely enough, Lesnar dominated former champions Frank Mir and Randy Couture while having a hole in his intestine, which was leaking acid into his stomach.
Following Lesnar’s successful surgery on Tuesday, his condition isn’t looking as grim as it once was, although his future in MMA is still in doubt.
“It’s looking better now than last week, but what that means, I don’t know,” an unsure White continued.
According to White, the earliest we can expect to hear an update will be sometime next week. He is still pushing to have his biggest pay-per-view draw get checked into the Mayo Clinic.
