because of illness? what like he has the sniffles or a sore throat, I dont understand why a fight that is a month away is going to be cancelled because of an illness unless its a serious illness, I mean serious, I dont get these guys anymore, cough due to cold, main event cancelled

right because there have been confirmed reports that brock has the siffles, cut it out you have no idea what his ailment is, hold ur judgement until you do.

I definitely dont know why he's out, I mentioned in my original comment that if its something serious then ok but didnt he pull out of a fight before in the UFC because he was sick?
could be wrong but I think he did and its well annoying
I just remember guys like spencer fisher, roger huerta, jorge gurgel going into fights where at the weigh in they looked like ghosts cause they had the flu but said **** it, theres a caliber of fighter who fights almost no matter what and the ones who are well ...who knows
I hope its a serious illness but somehow I doubt it

Cain could step in......


I think Cain vs Carwin was planned around this time before so why not just do it



Unless Carwin needs the cake ( Which I doubt he has a good job outside of fighting) There is no reason for him to take such a dangerous fight. He takes that fight and he could lose his shot at the belt or get hurt and push back the title fight agian then allow some one else to shine and steal it from him kinda like the Vitor Dan Anderson deal. I see this fight just getting pushed back till Brock is ready.

I gotta agree.
Cain VS Carwin would be great but Carwin has been training for Brock.
I think it would be too risky for Cain and Carwin both.

I hope Lesnar gets better soon. I'm glad the fight was postponed this far in advance instead of getting pulled a week or less before UFC 106. The event definitely will suffer in buyrate without Lesnar on the card, but if it's put on UFC 108 at Carwin's suggestion, that event will rival 100 in sheer starpower. Definitely interested in seeing more details.

I do not like Lesnar, but dropping out of a fight a month in advance because of illness worries me. Although I'm rooting for Carwin, I like to see fights where both fighters are as close to 100% as possible.

I had H1N1, too. It's pretty devastating. I was basically out of it for a week and it's taken me another week or two to finally get rid of the cough. Not really a reason to pull out of a fight that is greater than 1 month away, but at least there's no excuses this way. Thank God I hadn't bought my tix yet.

the article said the illness was forcing lesnar to take days off during his training camp. brock then took an entire week off to try and beat the illness, but it wasn't enough to shake the sickness. sounds to me like he had something more than mere "sniffles", as you put it. sounds to me like you didn't bother reading the source before you posted
