According to Greg Nelson, Brock Lesnar’s coach from Minnesota Martial Arts Academy, the current UFC Heavyweight Champion will be back. This is the most definite news we have received regarding Lesnar’s future since it was first announced he had been sidelined with diverticulitis.
Nelson was a guest today on ESPN’s MMA Live and spoke with host Jon Anik about the champ’s condition. Nelson could not give a specific timetable on when Lesnar might return, but said they would not rush things, and when he did return he would be at 100 percent.
UFC President Dana White and Lesnar are supposed to hold a press conference next week to discuss in detail the champ’s situation. Hopefully the MMA world will then get a better idea of when the sport may get back its number one draw.
