White: 100% fit Brock Lesnar is not retiringPosted on September 3, 2011, 05:35 AM by Anton Gurevich
UFC President Dana White dispelled any rumors around Brock Lesnar's possible retrement, declaring during the UFC on Fox Conference Call that the former UFC Heavyweight Champ is 100% fit and is ready to get back to training.
"That's ridiculous. It's so far from the truth it's not even funny. The guy's been working up on a farm up in Canada all summer. He's 100 percent. His surgery went great, he's 100 percent, he's getting back into training in the next couple of weeks." - Dana White during UFC on Fox 1 main event announcement conference call (quote via BloodyElbow.com)
Brock Lesnar was originally scheduled to square off against Junior Dos Santos earlier this year in the main event of UFC 131, but was forced to pull out of the fight due to a returning Diverticulitis illness. Frank Mir is widely considered as the main candidate to greet Lesnar in his return to the Octagon for a trilogy bout between the two.
However, it looks like Frank Mir is not the only one "in the mix" for a fight with Brock Lesnar. PRIDE legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira recently he would be more than happy to prove his worth against the former UFC Heavyweight Champion, possibly at UFC's return to Japan in February.
