UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar is getting ready to defend his title against interim title holder Shane Carwin at UFC 116: Lesnar vs. Carwin next month.
Lesnar was originally slated to face Carwin for the title last November until Lesnar fell ill after contracting diverticulitis. The bout was re-scheduled for this past January until it seemed like Lesnar’s illness might be career-ending. Although his life hung in the balance, Lesnar was able to make a “miraculous” recovery and is excited to get back in the Octagon after a year-long layoff.
Lesnar released a video entitled “Countdown to Crushing Carwin” where he talks about his upcoming bout. You can watch the full video below:
