UFC heavy weight title holder Brock Lesnar’s mystery sickness has been identified by the UFC as a “bacterial infection in his intestinal tract.”
News of Lesnar being seriously sick broke over the weekend when the UFC confirmed that he had been admitted to hospital following a bout of Infectious Mononucleosis. The second issue, and the illness keeping him out of the ring was not disclosed at that time based on Lesnar’s request for privacy.
UFC President Dana White said on Twitter that he was “Leaving Bismarck, N.D., right now. Brock had minor surgery and is feeling better. Not 100 per cent sure he is out of the woods but feeling better.”
It’s believed that his current sickness may be the result of the long term use of steroids.
