I'm doing well," he said.

"Those rumors out there are not true. I'm dealing with a complicated health issue but feeling better and hoping to be back to 100 percent by Jan. 26 (UFC on FOX 6 in Chicago). See you soon."

Ariel Helweni followed up with a more detailed description of the health issues Goldberg may be facing:

However, according to multiple sources close to Goldberg, who all asked to remain anonymous, the broadcaster suffered from a severe upper respiratory infection in October. The already-asthmatic Goldberg was then treated with large doses of medication to open the airway and treat the infection. Goldberg's doctor later confirmed that the medication taken to treat the infection in combination with his normal asthma medication caused severe side effects that affected his ability to work, which according to the same sources, was the reason he missed UFC 155.

Goldberg is currently being treated to get his health back on track and is approaching a full recovery.

So they couldn't announce that was the cause of him missing 155, when it was announced he was taking time off? I don't buy it.

Idn, maybe he was just trying to keep quiet about it and didn't tell anyone. Hopefully this doesn't become too serious because it doesn't sound good

Unless he gave the UFC permission, I doubt they would be able to, due to privacy reasons.

That's what a drug addicted always says, they're always in denial. First step is to be honest and confess that you have a problem

My friend went to UFC event at Chi-Town last year and hung out at the fighter's hotel after the events. Long story short Chandella and someone else were helping Goldie get back to his room because he was too smashed to stand on his own.

Needless to say Goldberg goes hard after events.

Interesting that it comes out a week later and not the next day that he had a heath issue

IDK what it is but I hope he is back soon. Watching and not hearing him is not the same. Get well Mike.
