Looks like Brock will be okay. He was diagnosed and had surgery for severe case of diverticulitis.  It is not life threatening until late stages of it, so any talk of his career being over are just an exaggeration.  He will take a while to recover, but Lesnar will fight again, most likely some time next year.

But there is still the mono he has. That can last for a year of just a few months. Brock is not getting younger either he's 31 already with a record of 4-1 in MMA. In comparison Fedor is a year older and has a record of 31-1. Heck Mousasi is just 24 and he has a record of 27-2. A year off will be a disaster at this stage for Brock. He can't train, his conditioning will get worse and he can't learn new things. His competition won't stop either.

Okay we finally have confirmation what is wrong with Brock. It was never mono!

Dana White: "Brock Lesnar Had a Hole In His Intestine"

White cautioned that things could still go either way. He could fight. He could not. No one knows at this point. Lesnar was resting Wednesday at his home in Alexandria, Minn. and was scheduled to visit the famed Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. early next week for a battery of tests.

"He had a hole in his intestine," White said. "The (stuff) was leaking into his stomach. That's what was causing him so much pain. That and he had abscesses.

"The doctor told him he hasn't been right for a year. His immune system has been trying to fight this thing and that's why he was susceptible to getting sick."

That likely explains Lesnar’s original diagnosis of mono. He had been weakened to the point that he was unable to train for the Carwin fight for much of October. That prompted the original delay in the fight. Then last week, the intestinal problem flamed up and Lesnar was hospitalized.

Okay it's time for some Hulk Smashing. Mariusz Pudzianowski is the world strongest man. He has won more World's Strongest Man titles than any other strongman competitor, winning the event in 2008 for his fifth time. Super Mariusz is now looking to compete in MMA. This is his first fight.

Mariusz Pudzianowski vs. Marcin Najman

Okay time for one of the best card I have ever seen. I am not joking here, two fights in this card can very well be FoTY. So let's get it on.

Strikeforce: Evolution

King Mo vs Whitehead

Matt Lindland vs Jacaré (Bugsy watch this Jacaré is a BJJ ace)

Lightweight Championship unification bout:  Josh Thomson vs.  Gilbert Melendez

^wow, this might be FoTY (Sorry for the small video, but it's the only one I could find

Cung Le vs Scott Smit 

Or maybe this is the FoTY, it's like a fucking movie

I hope you guy(s) are enjoying these fights. It did take quite a while to find them all the fight videos.

Oh and remember to watch this space in the new year. On NYE Japan has a huge K1/MMA fight gala.

Okay as promised the NYE event. In Japan it is tradition to put fights on New Year's Eve. They are infamous for organizing freak shows and mismatches. In other words they can get really bloody. Normally the different organizations each have their own NYE event, but this time Dream, Sengoku and K1 organized a super event. 

SO I PRESENT TO YOU THE K1 DYNAMITE 2009 EVENT

Masato vs. Souwer 

Masato is probably the most famous martial artist in Japan. He has actually won the highly prestigious K1 max tournament (kick boxing rules). This is his last fight before retirement and he has chosen his opponent to be Andy Souwer. The Dutch Destroyer is also 2 times K1 max champion and he actually has a 2-0 record against Masato. So can Masato avenge his losses before retiring or will Souwer win again?

See the fight here

Aoki vs Hirota

Aoki is the Lightweight champion of Dream, Hirota is the Lightweight champion of Sengoku. Who win this fight and become the undisputed Lightweight champion? Bugsy Aoki has awesome BJJ. His submission are sick.

See the fight here

Minowa vs Sokoudjou

The finals of the Super Hulk tournament. Super Hulk tournament was basically putting huge guys against little guy. A real life David and Goliath. Minowaman is such a David. He slain giants like Hong Man Choi and Bob Sapp. Will he be able to reach Splash Heaven by defeating Sokoudjou? Will the underdog win? All hail the red speedos!

Okay it's UFC 108 time

Rashad Evans vs Thiago Silva 

The winner will fight Rampage Jackson. As some of you might know Evans and Jackson were coaches of the last Ultimate Fighter. The normal idea is that the coaches fight each other when the reality show is over, but Rampage had other plans. Hollywood plans, playing as BA Baracus in the A-Team. A shame really because the two coaches were in each others hair all the time, it would have been great to see them fight. Other nice piece of information both fighter where KTFO by the current LHW champion Lyoto Machida.

See fight here, pay attention to the idiotic action in round 3. Jesus what a idiot.

Dos Santos vs. Yvel 

Dos Santos is one of the up and coming fighters in the UFC. Dana White said that he is close to a title shot. Yvel we know from Affliction, where he fought Josh Barnett. Both are know to be strikers, so expect bombs to fly.

See fight here

Hazelett vs. Daley

Classic striker vs. BJJ guy.

See fight here

Joe Lauzon vs. Sam Stout 

Don't know these guys, but this fight was awarded fight of the night
