Brock Lesnar Won’t Fight At UFC 131

According to the Associated Press UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar will not fight next month because he’s sick. Lesnar says he has diverticulitis, a digestive disorder, which is not as serious right now. Lesnar got it two years ago. The fighters says he’s not retiring, just taking a break.

It’s unclear right now if he’s going to have surgery to fix the problem. In the UFC 131 main event against Brazilian Junio Dos Santos at Rogers Arena, Shane Carwin is going to replace Lesnar. Whoever wins that match will fight heavyweight champ Cain Valasquez.
