Brock Lesnar will not be defending his UFC Heavyweight Title against Shane Carwin in the UFC 106 main event on Nov. 21. Instead, former light heavyweight champions Forrest Griffin and a returning Tito Ortiz will collide in a headlining rematch.
UFC reports indicate Lesnar has been ill for nearly a month and has not been able to train. Carwin, via Twitter even mentioned the possibility of the champ having swine flu. However, UFC President Dana White has indicated he does not believe Lesnar has the H1N1 virus.
It looks like the Lesnar vs. Carwin fight will be rescheduled for some time early 2010. Jan. 2 has been mentioned as a possible date, which if the case, would put the fight as the headliner for UFC 108.
