Brock Lesnar Pulls Out Of UFC 106 Title Fight Due To Illness



UFC champion Brock Lesnar‘s scheduled title defense against undefeated heavyweight contender Shane Carwin has been canceled. The fight had been scheduled for UFC 106 on November 21st but Lesnar has been battling an ongoing (undisclosed) illness.

UFC President Dana White told Yahoo! Sports, “He said he’s never been this sick in his life. He said it’s been going on for a long time and he just hasn’t been able to shake it.”

White was quick to shoot down a rumoro that Lesnar has contracted swine flu, but didn’t go into detail on what the illness is.

Shane Carwin posted a message on his Twitter account this afternoon that the fight will now take place at UFC 108 on January 2, 2010.
