Paul Heyman, a long-time friend of Brock Lesnar from his days as a professional wrestler in the WWE, recently spoke to the UFC heavyweight champion, who remains adamant about getting his point across regarding health care, not only in Canada but the United States as well.
“I’m an American. I’m guaranteed the right to express my opinion. And I’m stating it loud and clear, because I experienced something that I want to talk about. If I was a recovering drug addict, people would want to hear my story,” Lesnar told Heyman.
Lesnar created quite the uproar last week with his comments regarding the level of service he received while under the Canadian health care system. That came on the heels of his announcement that he would be returning to MMA after American doctors had not only saved his career, but his life.
The champ also made it clear that he’s not only singling out the Canadian health care system, but the US system as well. That’s right, the same system that ultimately saved his life.
“I still have my career today because of the United States Health Care System. Does it need some fixing? Absolutely,” Lesnar continued to say.
According to Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports, Lesnar could be making his return from diverticulitis as early as May, but a June or July emergence is more likely.
