The prognosis seems to be getting better each day for UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. Things went from possibly never fighting again to waiting for the doctor’s to clear him before he can resume training.

Although there is no timetable for Lesnar’s return to the Octagon, Dana White did say that Lesnar will have his health re-evaluated in about a month.

Until then, White won’t make any decisions on an interim championship bout with the winner of Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira potentially squaring off against Shane Carwin.

“I’ve got to wait to see what happens with Brock, but it won’t be long,” White said.
