The UFC 105 post-fight press conference happened and after Dana White made his Brock Lesnar announcement, the results of tonight’s fight seemed irrelevant. Dana White stated that Brock Lensar has a potential career ending illness and he may be stripped of his title. Bet you didn’t see that one coming when you woke up with a hangover on your friend’s sofa this morning. This may be the end for the UFC heavyweight, an end that leaves Shane Carwin clinching his XXXXXL hands. Inside Fights breaks the news via a guy named Rob.
The big news from the UFC Press Conference had nothing to do with tonight’s fights. To a stunned press pack, Dana White announced that Brock Lesnar is not only struggling to recover from mono but that after a recent trip to Canada he has developed further health problems and is currently back in hospital. He refused to give more details about the nature of these health problems except that they were serious. In response to a direct question about what this meant for the future of the heavyweight championship Dana White raised the possibility of an interim championship or even stripping Lesnar of the title. He said that he will be meeting with Lesnar and his people next week to decide what the future holds for the UFC Heavyweight Champion and the championship he currently holds.
So where does this place the imaginary Fedor vs. Brock fight? If this illness ends his career are we going to be forced to use the ‘hypothetical scenario’ defense? Maybe I should stop asking you questions that clearly have no answer and find my missing bottle of Corona instead. Good call. [Source]
