Yahoo Sports is reporting that Brock Lesnar, the was forced to withdraw Monday from his highly anticipated November 21st title defense in Las Vegas against Shane Carwin.
UFC president Dana White confirmed the news to Yahoo! Sports that Lesnar has been ill for more than three-and-a-half weeks and unable to train. With the bout at UFC 106 less than a month away, Lesnar was forced to postpone the title defense. “He said he’s never been this sick in his life,” White said. “He said it’s been going on for a long time and he just hasn’t been able to shake it.” White said he does not believe Lesnar had the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu.
White said he is not sure when the fight will be rescheduled or if Carwin will still fight on the card. “We’re still working everything out,” he said.
