The UFC President has formally announced on ESPN the return of MMA heavyweight sensation Brock Lesnar. The champ will return to the octagon this summer and "will be ready for anyone".
The new year is traditionally a time to get healthy and lose weight. Brock Lesnar has reportedly done both.
After losing 40 pounds to a digestive disease, the six-foot-three 265-pound heavyweight fighter has been declared healthy and ready for mixed martial art action, according to the Canadian Press.
The 32 year old was diagnosed with Diverticulitis in November of 2009 and reportedly suffered a stomach rupture.
According to the Vancouver Sun, Lesnar's condition was brought on by his all protein diet. The champion declared himself a "carnivore" and said "whatever I kill, I eat".
After receiving inadequate care at a Canadian hospital, the controversial Lesnar stated that Canada has some of the "best hunting in the world" but "it was like I was in a third world country".
It was his return to the U.S. that a six-inch needle was required to extract 14cc of fluid from his stomach. The fear was that he would not fight again. Now post-stomach surgery and healthy, Brock has stated that he wants "to get his hands on [Frank Mir] again".
The possibility of that fight will be determined in UFC 111 if Mir is victorious in a scheduled bout against Carwin.
