Greg Nelson - Lesnar should be home soon

by Steven Marrocco | source:

The fate of UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has brightened considerably, his trainer told Monday night. Greg Nelson, Lesnar’s head coach and owner of Minnesota Mixed Martial Arts, said Lesnar has a bacterial infection in his intestinal tract, but his condition is improving. “He should be home soon,” Nelson wrote via text message.

Lesnar, 32, was hospitalized in North Dakota last week after collapsing at his property in Canada, and was reportedly diagnosed with mononucleosis and an intestinal disorder. At the UFC 105 post-fight press conference last Saturday, UFC president Dana White said Lesnar was “very, very sick” and would “be out for a while.” He planned to fly to Lesnar’s side and offered to send the fighter to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. On Monday, White was quoted on celebrity gossip website as saying Lesnar might never fight again.

I've heard that he has property an hour outside of Brandon MB. I believe Brandon was the first hospital he was sent to.

 I'm not sure the sweater would allow itself to be worn by anyone other than Fedor. 2jups might very well get armbarred trying to get past the first sleeve.

 Don't forget Fedor's sweater.  You might look goofy wearing all that but you could tap out God himself. And thanks for the update

I find it both funny and sad that all the troll threads regarding lesnar have received much more attention than this one. You know the one that actually has accurate information from the man who trains with him.
