If you believe Marty Morgan, coach of Brock Lesnar, fans can expect to see the UFC heavyweight champ fighting again. Although Morgan was able to shed light on the controversial fighter’s future, he remained tight-lipped on exactly what ails Lesnar.

“Everyone’s asking about his health. He had a bout with a bacterial infection in his intestinal tract in November, and now we’re just kind of working our way to get back to where we need to get back to fight,” Morgan told sportsnet.ca today.

UFC president Dana White stated over the UFC 108 weekend that Lesnar was set to be re-examined by specialists this week, with an update immediately to follow. Yesterday, White said nothing has changed in regards to his biggest star, however reiterated that Lesnar wanted to keep his health private.

In true Team Lesnar fashion, Morgan echoed the same sentiment.

“I don’t give more answers than that. Brock don’t give more answers, (and) his agents don’t give more answers,” Morgan stated. “There’s really only a handful of people who know where we’re at, whether it’s moving forwards or backwards.”

Morgan says he understands why fans are anxious to know what is wrong with Lesnar, however he would like to remind everyone that they shouldn’t feel entitled to anything.

“A lot of times I think that in this day and age of Facebook and Twitter it almost bugs me that people always need to know what’s going on all the time,” Morgan added. “I understand people granted want to know how his health is but at this point right now we’ve kind of just kept quiet with what’s going on.”

For now, Lensar’s condition remains under lock and key. That’s fine because what Morgan said after that will be heard loud and clear.

“He will fight again. I know that it’s just a matter of the public finding out when soon enough,” he said.
