Ominous Illness Sidelines UFC Champ Lesnar

11/15/2009 11:39 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brock LesnarBrock Lesnar -- the UFC Heavyweight Champ -- is in "bad shape" according to UFC president Dana White and won't be fighting anytime soon.

White made the announcement after UFC 105 last night, saying "He's in a hospital up in North Dakota somewhere right now. He went to Canada and some bad stuff happened to him, so we've got to figure it out ... He doesn't want to talk about it publicly, but he's in bad shape. He's not well and he's not going to be getting well anytime soon."

Lesnar originally pulled out of a November 18 fight and reports suggested he had swine flu. The fight was rescheduled for January 2, but then it was announced Lesnar had mononucleosis.

But White made it clear, Lesnar's problems go beyond mono: "He is not good. He is very, very sick and he's going to be out for a while."

I'm not familiar with this man. But I'm so sorry to hear of his illness. I pray that God will surround him with his mightiest of Angels and bring him to full health again soon. He needs everyones prayers now - whether you were a fan of his or not , he is a fellow human being. God speed!

Speculation on my part, but he is trying to hide something. I understand Brock is worried about a stigma attached to whatever has him so sick?

Drug related is my expectation.

Thank you I have been wanting to know so bad what it was. It makes sense why he wants it kept quiet now too. It might be a rumor but I don't think it is.

Amazing how undereducated the public is about HIV/Aids ... he wouldn't be so sick with Aids related illnesses so quickly. Although Aids did cross my mind ... if he has it, he didn't just acquire it in recent weeks.
