UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has a bacterial infection and is currently hospitalized. UFC President Dana White confirmed the news to USA Today on Monday.
Minnesota television station WCCO reported that Lesnar is suffering from diverticulitis, a severe intestinal disease where small pouches form in the intestinal tract.
White said that Lesnar is in stable condition and will soon be released from the hospital, but he’s still encouraging Lesnar to check into the Mayo Clinic for further treatment. White also said that Lesnar wished to thank his fans for the support they’ve shown during his illness.
