Brock Lesnar

Rebounds From Stomach Illness

Crushes Italian Food

Two years after UFC badass Brock Lesnar was forced to retire due to serious stomach issues, the Beast Incarnate proved his guts are still TOUGH AS HELL ... by woofing down enough food to feed a small Italian village.

As you may recall, Brock was diagnosed with a severe case of diverticulitis back in 2009 -- a digestive tract disease that usually forms in the large intestine -- and after multiple surgeries, he was forced to retire in 2011.

But things are lookin' up ... 'cause TMZ has learned Lesnar and his wife Sable hit up Fresco restaurant in Montclair, NJ on Monday ... and Brock put his belly to the test.

Check out what he ate:

-- Ahi tuna with asparagus (shared)
-- Margherita pizza (shared)
-- Chicken Parm ... with TRIPLE-EXTRA chicken
-- Full bowl of parpadelle bolognese

... and, to top things off, dude crushed a slice of cheesecake by himself.

We're told the entire meal cost just north of $500 ... PLUS, we're told the WWE star left a "very generous" tip to everyone who stayed past closing time to take care of him.

Awesome.

He was beat into retirement and his illness was due to steroid abuse. He could not hang with true MMA fighters.

That haircut should come with ass chaps and a nipple ring. I'm saying that haircut is gay.

$500 for pizza and pasta? WTF not WWE - for $500 he could at least have enjoyed some real food not that rubbish, unless the bill included a $450 bottle of wine or something?

Any coincidence these steroid abusers always seem to be the ones getting these exotic ailments?

Not debating that steroids tear up your body, but diverticulitis is far from exotic...

He looks like he eats like a pig. I think he didn't digest most of it. When you stuff yourself, especially on greasy carbs, that will cause diverticulitis. He must eat like that a lot.


It all probably just layed like a lump in his stomach. That puts pressure on the intestines. Then you get bulges and sacks such as diverticula and hemorrhoids.


He should have had soup, salad, an appetizer, an entree and dessert. It seems he just went too heavy on the heavy food and that is not healthy.


That is why Italians have all of those different courses, so that they don't kill themselves when they eat a lot.

Getting his ass handed to him may have contributed to his retirement from MMA too. It was awesome to watch him lose.

Seems like he "crushed " that slice of cake between his buttcheeks and his little jock sniffer boyfriend gets to clean it up? At least his smile seems to say: " Are these kneepads okay for you?" I'd support that 100%!


Sports fanboys are the funniest unintentionally homoerotically obsessed people in the world.
