Reason Lesnar Pulled Out, New Rumored Date For The Fight

Matt Boone

To update our previous report on Brock Lesnar’s UFC 106 fight being cancelled, apparently it is because Lesnar has been suffering from a severe flu for almost a full month.

Basically, Brock Lesnar has still yet to shake the illness and felt he wouldn’t have enough time to properly prepare for the November fight.

According to reports, UFC contacted Shane Carwin and told him right now that the tenative plan is to have the fight rescheduled for UFC 108 on January 2nd, 2010 in Las Vegas. That card was originally scheduled to be headlined by Rashad Evans vs. Thiago Silva, which if the Lesnar-Carwin fight is added as currently planned, would then become the co-main event for the event.
