Brock Lesnar Diverticulitis: Will Lesnar Ever Be The Same Again?
Brock Lesnar's Diverticulitis Will Change The Way That He Lives His Life
Brock Lesnar was in the midst of the most important year of his mixed martial arts career before diverticulitis took its toll on him again. This was the year where he would get things back on track following his loss to Cain Velasquez at UFC 121 where he was completely destroyed in four minutes.
Now, Lesnar is left with a lot of questions about his life and career and not a lot of answers right now. Obviously the most important thing is him getting healthy to live a normal life and take care of his family.
But what about Lesnar’s career? Does he have enough time to comeback from this illness again AND fight against top level competition?
Lesnar has the option of having surgery or trying to let this situation work itself out. If he has the surgery, he will miss 12 months minimum.
Lesnar turns 34 this year in July, which would make him 35 or close to it by the time he is able to comeback. Following that long of a layoff, there is no way that he will be back to fighting the way that he is accustomed to right away.
Plus, unless you are Randy Couture, a fighter’s decline period usually begins in their mid-30’s. Lesnar may be able to come back and compete in mixed martial arts. He may win some fights along the way, too. But I think it’s safe to say that his best days in the sport are now behind him.
I would like to be wrong because I don’t like to see any athlete affected due to injury or illness, but I would be shocked if Lesnar was ever the same again.
