Brock Lesnar: Former UFC Heavyweight Champ Has Surgery on Stomach
Brock Lesnar Has Surgery on Stomach, May Be Back to UFC This Year
Brock Lesnar, former UFC heavyweight champ, has had surgery on his stomach that resulted from a second bout with diverticulitis.
The former champ is one of the toughest men on this planet and if he is being sidelined by a stomach issue, it has to be serious.
Lesnar had to pull out of his No. 1 contender fight against Junior dos Santos at UFC 131 and now the road ahead is very unclear.

UFC President Dana White told ESPN:
Brock Lesnar had surgery yesterday. They removed about 12 inches of his colon, and they repaired it. He says he feels great. He's a little sore, but the operation was a huge success. We're hoping that he can be back by the first of the year. He's excited to recover and get back in the UFC.
I don’t know exactly what kind of surgery it took to perform this operation, but if it was invasive through the abdomen it could be a long healing process.
Lesnar is one of the toughest dudes in the MMA, but I don’t know how far he can stretch himself with this surgery.
