    Re: Brock Lesnar may never fight again

    I saw that Dana White was up there this week (via twitter) and he said something about Brock having surgery... Thats too bad, I was really hoping they could get Lesnar vs. Fedor done some day.

In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Re: Brock Lesnar may never fight again

    Lesnar will fight again. Another article I read today, one that keeps Dana White out of it, mentioned the procedure and that the bacterial infection is almost completely gone. They expect a full recovery.

    Not trying to undermine how serious this is but take a lot of what Dana White says with a grain of salt. When Lesnar fights again White has his perfect hype machine set up.

    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

I'm not making fun of him for being sick, I'm just saying that he when he looks at his bank statement, and then looks at his wife, it probably doesn't seem so bad. It does suck that he's out, though. Watching him fight is the only reason I would watch a UFC fight.

    I have a hard time even reading Brock's name and not thinking of the cheesey Scent Killer commercials on Versus and Sportsmans channel

    I agree that you can't take everything Dana says too seriously, but I doubt he is hyping anything here. Keeping the mystique of Brock as an unstoppable smashing machine is probably better for the UFC than showing that he is a human that got really sick and had to have emergency surgery.

    He will probably return to fighting but that is a really tough stretch. Mono followed by whatever bacterial infection that was. Mono alone can hold him out for 2 months or so and since it comes out of the EB virus we pretty much all have, he will have the virus for life. It can sometimes flare up again in pro athletes who push their bodies to the limit. Here's to hoping he can make a full recovery and be back at it this summer or so.

    Dana White is a bald Don King.

    He's a weasel but does a damn good job of it.

    Re: Brock Lesnar may never fight again

    I hope Lesnar gets well, but.........................

    Ultimate fighting is against the law for any animals except human beings. I think it is a sad commentary on society that this "sport" is so popular.

    Fire when ready.
