The Latest on Lesnar: UFC Champ Faces Emergency Surgery at Mayo Clinic, May Never Fight Again



Leave it to TMZ to touch off a media frenzy. Earlier today, the Hollywood gossip site posted a report (http://www.tmz.com/2009/11/16/brock-lesnar-dana-white-mayo-clinic-mono-ufc-wwe/) that Undisputed UFC World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar was suffering from a severe intestinal disorder, and "There's a possibility Lesnar will never fight again."

Unfortunately, that is all that is known about Lesnar's condition at the moment. While pro wrestling and MMA websites are re-posting the TMZ story, no one has any more insight into the Lesnar story as of this posting.

As we posted yesterday, a major clue into the severity of Lesnar's illness may be that his close friend and business associate Paul Heyman, the acknowledged genius writer/producer/on-air-personality with whom Lesnar closely worked during his tenure in World Wrestling Entertainment is keeping mum on what's ailing the current UFC Champion.

In an articled written by Heyman Hustle webmaster Michael G and posted late Saturday Night (http://heymanhustle.craveonline.com/articles/news/22656-brock-lesnar-hospitalized), the webmaster wrote:


Many of you may be checking in with THE HEYMAN HUSTLE because of Paul Heyman's personal friendship and reported business relationship with Brock. For those of you who are looking for that insight, I can tell you that Paul has not discussed this latest development with any of us, but is aware of this story being posted tonight. Paul has promised to update on the situation this week. While there are many rumors flying around, it does not appear that a full diagnosis is available, and after the press had already run with the mono story, it's obvious Lesnar's health problem is serious and perhaps even complicated.

We will update on this situation as it develops.
