Gigantic UFC news! Brock Lesnar may never fight again

Holy crap. Everything is all happening at once. Courtesy Figure Four Online. It's behind the member's only firewall, but here's the quick and dirty:
  • Brock Lesnar is extremely sick with mono and something else unknown and may never fight again.
  • Big Nog has a bad staph infection and is out of UFC 108. 
  • Shane McMahon had a meeting with UFC recently.
The big news from the UFC Press Conference had nothing to do with tonight’s fights. To a stunned press pack, Dana White announced that Brock Lesnar is not only struggling to recover from mono but that after a recent trip to Canada he has developed further health problems and is currently back in hospital. He refused to give more details about the nature of these health problems except that they were serious. In response to a direct question about what this meant for the future of the heavyweight championship Dana White raised the possibility of an interim championship or even stripping Lesnar of the title. He said that he will be meeting with Lesnar and his people next week to decide what the future holds for the UFC Heavyweight Champion and the championship he currently holds.
More: "Dana White said tonight that he promised Lesnar to keep the disease private, and said he doesn't have cancer or AIDS. It is, however, extremely serious and there are at least two things wrong and there may be more."

More: Dana White quote: "He doesn't want to talk about it publicly, but he's in bad shape. He's not well. He's not going to be getting well anytime soon."
