You a doctor? In fact, are you Lesnar's personal doctor? Your conspiracy theory is absurd.

I mean... if he has mono and is really incapable of training thats one thing... but as far as I've seen it hasn't been confirmed that he has mono. I heard some say they think it might be H1N1 and some say they think it might be mono but neither is confirmed.
My concern is that he is using this as an excuse to postpone the fight. I'm not sure of the reasoning behind it but it just seems like a rather long absence considering the lack of injury or medical diagnosis.

Ok there are so many things wrong with this post. First, For all you know I could be a doctor. Second, I am entitled to my opinion and don't much appreciate it being referred to as a conspiracy theory. Third, are you a doctor?
It is very reasonable for me to question the validity of his absence. As I mentioned the illness is as of yet undisclosed. Do I know if it has been diagnosed? Nope. Does it make a difference? Nope. If it hasn't been diagnosed then he is dropping out of two fights because he simply doesn't feel good. If it is that bad he needs to see a doctor and get a diagnosis. If it has been diagnosed and he hasn't disclosed the diagnosis, it can't really be that bad. Would he tell the media the diagnosis if it was a mere cold and could make him look bad? If it was a serious enough illness, such as mono, why wouldn't he say so and erase questions of legitimacy?
Maybe he is being unreasonable. Maybe he has been diagnosed with a serious illness and decided irrationally to keep the information secret. But I have every right to be suspicious and Shane Carwin has every right to be angry.
As the champ he has responsibilities, one of those is having a valid reason for dropping out of fights. I'm not sure that he has provided a definitively valid reason. Hence why I said it is unprofessional.
You could easily make an argument for an interim belt if he does not disclose more information soon.
