UFC president Dana White announced on Thursday that former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has been forced to pull out of his scheduled fight against Junior Dos Santos at UFC 131.
White confirmed that Lesnar's diverticulitis has returned and he may need a life-changing surgical operation. Lesnar stated that he won't retire from MMA, but there is simply no way he can compete as scheduled in June.
The new main event for UFC 131 will be Junior Dos Santos taking on another top-ranked heavyweight contender – Shane Carwin.
