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.

Brock Lesnar is nothing more than an overrated street thug. Couldn't stand him in his first WWE run, couldn't stand him in UFC, still can't stand him to this day.

Wrestlers burn a lot more calories than you'd think. Far more than MMA fighters who fight once or twice a year and only work out a month before their scheduled fight.

I doubt his illness comes from steroid abuse. Steroids may have been used by Lesnar, but there are a number of things that can cause diverticulitis. Not helped by wrestlers having to scour the towns for a meal and not always having the luxury of checking out the towns' reviews of certain establishment for health code violations.
