Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:
"UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar looks like, because of his on going issues allegedly with diverticulitis, that he will be stripped of his title soon. If Brock is lucky enough to dodge the surgeon’s knife on this matter it will be miraculous. Having had diverticulitis, diverticulosis, a perforated intestine and a tumor removed from my colon I can identify with some of what Brock is currently going through. (Thank God I had the skilled Dr. Heiney to help pull me through.)"
"He will have to change his diet to a significant degree for the rest of his life but I still see Brock most likely returning to the Octagon. Perhaps not in 2010 and, if so, it would be late in 2010. If Frank Mir wins the interim title, expect Lesnar to be even more motivated to return and physically destroy Mir as Brock did in their last encounter. To Mir’s credit, he has talked and fought his way back into relevancy and into the title picture. Lesnar is seeing skilled, astrologist’s and his physical snapshot will be evolving over the next few months."
"Obviously, UFC honchos feel Lesnar will be out an extended period of time or they wouldn’t attempt to crown an interim, paper champion in Brock’s absence."
