White said 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.
Shane Carwin reacts via his Twitter account of the news that his chance at a UFC title shot might be off.
ShaneCarwin: It’s dissappinting hearing about your career and life through the media. Nothing from the boss’s yet.
With just under a month till the scheduled event, Dana White will have to work some of that UFC magic and find a suitable replacement for the main event.
Carwin is tweeting away, It now looks like the fight with be postponed till UFC 108 on January 2 in Las Vegas.
