UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar’s future has been in doubt ever since his withdrawal from UFC 106 and subsequent mononucleosis diagnosis, but Saturday night, the future got even cloudier for Lesnar.

UFC president Dana White, according to numerous reports, revealed that Lesnar’s illness, far from getting better, has actually taken a turn for the worse. Though he was a little light on details, White revealed that Lesnar “dropped” on a recent trip he took to Canada to relax.

Several reports painted the picture as extremely bleak, even using the phrases “career threatening” and “life threatening.”

MMAWeekly.com spoke to a source in Lesnar’s camp on Saturday night that denied such characterizations, but indicated that there are some new issues to deal with.

“Nothing life threatening like the reports, just some complications with his illness and he had to be hospitalized for antibiotics.”

The extent and exact nature of Lesnar’s illness is still unclear. White indicated that he might even fly out to visit the champion to find out more about his condition and see what the promotion can do to help him get better.

MANCHESTER - UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar is seriously ill in hospital after collapsing in Canada, UFC president Dana White said Saturday.

"He's in rough shape, he's in really bad shape," White said Saturday after UFC 105.

"He is not well and he is not getting any better. . . . He's very, very sick and he's going to be out for a while. He's got a lot of problems."

Citing mononucleosis, the 32-year-old Lesnar was forced to postpone a title fight against Shane Carwin scheduled for UFC 106 on Nov. 21 in Las Vegas. The fight was pushed back to UFC 108 on Jan. 2, but that too has been postponed.

"He's got mono and he's got something else wrong with him. I know what's wrong with him, he just doesn't want me talking about it," White said.

"He doesn't have cancer or AIDS or anything like this, (but) he's got some problems, man."

White said Lesnar was currently in a hospital in North Dakota. The six-foot-three, 265-pounder owns property in Canada, White added.

"He dropped up there and had to go to hospital," White said.

He said Lesnar may have to go to the Mayo Clinic or another top hospital "to figure out what's wrong with this guy."

"He's not going to be getting well any time soon," White said.

I don't see this guy returning anytime soon(If ever) so they might as well schedule an interim title fight for the spring.

I stated it back when he was first diagnosed with mono, that I had serious concerns about his fighting future.

I hope he can make it back 100%, but he could be adversely affected by this for years.

Lucky for him, he can beat most guys without being at full stregth.

Apparently mono is the least of his worries right now as he has something else wrong that is much worse.

Worse in what sense though?........I'm thinking long term, and career wise.

This might sound callous, but I'm not real concerned if this new 'mystery' ailment has him feeling worse right now, I'm more concerned re: his long term prognosis vis a vis his in cage career.

I know, I know.....I'm a prick.
