  1. TheTude says:

    Good call Brock, one more kick to the gut and you could explode.

    • Jasplanet says:

      Yeah. Hope he’s resting in peace, he deserves a long nap. Can’t undo what he did and i respect him for going into mma and leaving a mark. I hope he beats his belly exploding disease some day

  2. Kay Oss says:

    Still consider the fact that he got diverticulitis when he did one of the most disappointing occurrences in the sport.

    The Brock we saw in his first few fights with a few more years’ experience underneath him? That would really have been something.

    Cheers for giving the sport the boost you did Mr. Lesnar, but now definitely a good call.

  3. Brian says:

    Still a top dog in the food chain

  4. Kenshiro says:

    Overeem destroyed Brock… !!! he kicked and punched the fighting spirit out of Brock.

  5. T.DADDY says:

    It was a nice run for a guy with no mma training but wrestling… Brock brought many fans who had never cared to watch mma before…

  6. James Lehart says:

    @Kenshiro People who suffer from the same condition that Lesnar had barely survive let alone go into a cage and take on a beast like Overeem. Manny Steward died early today from the same condition, so give Lesnar credit where its due!!! He exposed the sport to a whole new audience and personally i believe he fast tracked the sports progress by about 3 or 4 years.

  7. WARMACHINE says:

    Mad respect!

  8. Shannon says:

    Brock Lesnar is an amazing human being. It is sad that his fighting career was cut a bit short but given what he has achieved as a fighter with only a few fights under his belt, I personally don’t think anyone has the capabilities of even coming close to what he has done for this sport we love. Mr.Lesnar sir, I thank you very much for introducing me to this great sport.

  9. Brock is lame says:

    People should really research something before they comment on it!! My friend is a nurse and she said this is common. NOT people dying from it on every diagnosis. He was strong and athletic, BUT by no means a fighter!

    Diverticulitis is small, bulging sacs or pouches of the inner lining of the intestine (diverticulosis) that become inflamed or infected. Most often, these pouches are in the large intestine (colon).
    Causes, incidence, and risk factors

    No one knows exactly what causes the sacs, or pouches of diverticulosis to form. Eating a low-fiber diet is one of the most likely causes.

    People who eat mostly processed food, as many Americans eat, do not get enough fiber in their diet. Processed foods include white rice, white bread, most breakfast cereals, crackers, and pretzels.

    As a result, constipation and hard stools are more likely to occur – causing people to strain when passing stools. This increases the pressure in the colon or intestines and may cause these pouches to form.

    Diverticulosis is very common. It is found in more than half of Americans over age 60.

    Diverticulitis is caused by small pieces of stool (feces) that become trapped in these pouches, causing infection or inflammation.
    Symptoms

    People with diverticulosis often have no symptoms, but they may have bloating and cramping in the lower part of the belly. Rarely, they may notice blood in their stool or on toilet paper.

    Symptoms of diverticulitis are more severe and often start suddenly, but they may become worse over a few days. They include:

    Tenderness, usually in the left lower side of the abdomen

    Bloating or gas

    Fever and chills

    Nausea and vomiting

    Not feeling hungry and not eating

    Signs and tests

    Your health care provider will examine you. Blood tests may be ordered to see if you have an infection.

    Other tests that help diagnose diverticulitis may include:

    CT scan

    Ultrasound of the abdomen

    X-rays of the abdomen

    Treatment

    The treatment of diverticulitis depends on the severity of your symptoms. Some people may need to be in the hospital, but usually you can treat this problem at home.

    To help with the pain, your doctor may suggest that you:

    Rest in bed and possibly use a heating pad on your belly

    Take pain medicines (ask your doctor which ones you should use).

    Drink only fluids for a day or two, and then slowly begin drinking thicker liquids and then eating foods.

    The doctor may treat you with antibiotics.

    After you are better, your doctor will suggest that you add more fiber to your diet and avoid certain foods. Eating more fiber can help prevent future attacks. If you have bloating or gas, reduce the amount of fiber you eat for a few days.

    Once these pouches have formed, you will have them for life. If you make a few simple changes in your lifestyle, you may not have diverticulitis again.
    Expectations (prognosis)

    Usually, this is a mild condition that responds well to treatment. Some people will have more than one attack of diverticulitis.
    Complications

    More serious problems that may develop are:

    Abnormal connections that form between different parts of the colon or between the colon and another body area (fistula)

    Abscess (pocket filled with pus or infection)

    Hole or tear in the colon (perforation)

    Narrowed area in the colon (stricture)

    Calling your health care provider

    Call your health care provider if symptoms of diverticulitis occur.

    Also call if you have diverticulitis and:

    Blood in your stools

    Fever above 100.4 °F that dos not go away

    Nausea, vomiting, or chills

    Sudden belly or back pain that gets worse or is very severe

    • philly says:

      He lost over a foot of his intestine meat head… Lol

    • ThatGUY says:

      I’m impressed….. You can Copy and Paste the SHIT out of some Google or Wikipedia information. Or are we to believe that all of that info came strait off the head via what your “Nurse friend” told you?? HAHA!!

    • Pkq says:

      Did you come to this artical just to bash Brock? Do you know how many fans he brought in? Do you know the ppv numbers he did? He came into MMa withno prior training and dominated for awhile, and when he fought alistair he was starting to look like he was gaining alot on stand up technique. Sad that he can’t continue fighting because of this health issue.

      Btw did you even read the last part of your post, it can differ in patient to patient. Ranging from mild to severe. Brock had a severe case he spent awhile at the mayo clinic here in MN. So show respect where it is due.

    • Devilock138 says:

      Thanks for the info, Doc. But, I disagree with you. He was definitely a fighter.

  10. Miller says:

    Nice. Somebody knows how to use google…

  11. BanOveroids says:

    Yeah he chose to fight the last time after surgery, but for someone to target his surgically repaired torso is inhuman. Hit him in the face, kick him in his legs, break his arms, but man torso after surgery .. what a dog eat dogshit world.

    • Thom says:

      What a dumbass statement. It’s a fight, if you’re not in a condition to fight then don’t enter the cage. Overeem’s clinch and knees are his trademark and he uses it very effectively against pretty much everybody, so why would he decide not to use it against Brock?

  12. alfie says:

    its not surprise at all brocks smart he knows that heavyweights at the top now are just a class above him brock beat randy couture for the heavyweight belt think of the difference in competition between randy couture and JDS brock found out against cain and found out against alistair he just cant hang in the top 5 of the heavyweights still a great fighter and its a shame we wont get to see him pound mirs face into the canvas one more time

  13. THANK GOD says:

    This makes me so happy :D

  14. Sugar Ponybear says:

    Excuses can be excuses but fact is he got kneed into retirement after beating some washed up former champs and trash cans. I for one am happy he’s not coming back. I personally liked MMA more before he came around. It used to be about the fights and who was best. Now it’s about money and obnoxious casual fans that call them selves hardcore fans and MMA fighters.

    • Jasplanet says:

      I just had a mindblowing moment reading what u said. Brock made mma more famous and brought in more fans, but what if its the same fans that prefers the build up more than the fights itself turning mma into the hybrid between martial arts and circus acts that its becoming. GSP n AS is keeping things balanced somehow

  15. FitchBackIntheMix says:

    He wasn’t kneed into retirement by Overroids, his retirement began when Dana announced he had WTF ever and then when he had surgery. What was he expecting a large pair of trunks pulled to his chest to protect his bread basket? Really?

  16. 123 says:

    Even If Brock Lesnar Went Back To The UFC He Would Never Be A Top 10 Fighter In The Heavyweight Division Now.

  17. ShaneMcMann says:

    This just in, wrestling is fake. That’s what he gets for shooting all dem prairie dogs, eating all that mule deer meat, and being announcing his injuries like a genuine dumbass.

  18. Josiah says:

    for those people who talk shit bout brock i hope you’ll get this so called ‘Diverticulitis’. and then lets see how you feel when people put the word ‘LAME’ before your name just because you suffered from this condition.

  19. Rob V says:

    I respect Brock for stepping into a sport he had almost no experience with..not only that but he was thrust into the sport at its highest level..when others thought he would fail miserably..he not only succeeded he dominated at times…Brock’s biggest obstacle wasn’t Diverticulitis it was a lack of overall experience in grappling and stand-up..but kudos to him as an athlete, just based on pure athleticism alone he was able to beat and dominate some of the best fighters on earth.
