    Summary of the Brock Lesnar Conference Call by Michael Rome on Jan 20, 2010 2:44 PM EST in News 6 comments


    Below is the summary of the Brock Lesnar conference call that followed his appearance on SportsCenter.

    --Brock Lesnar is ready to start training immediately, and will fight the winner of Shane Carwin and Frank Mir. If something happens to Mir or Carwin in that fight, the winner of Nogueira-Velasquez will get a shot.

    --Brock was suffering for almost a year with stomach pains and didn’t know what it was. During training camp for Shane Carwin everything snowballed and fell apart. He was missing full weeks of training camps.

    --Brock had diverticulosis, not diverticulitis, which is the more minor case. One of his diverticuli ruptured, creating a hole in his stomach lining. His body couldn’t eat enough food to get nutrients, so he was operating at 60-80%.

    --Brock may fight the same weekend as the next Expo.

    --Brock's lowest moment was getting care from Canada. "We have the best doctors in the world" in the United States, tells us he's opposed to widespread health reform. Doctors in Canada couldn't do anything for him, it was like he was in a third world country. Brock loves Canada and owns property in Canada, but he'd definitely want to be in the U.S. to get care. Restates that he loves Canadians, but he's not a fan of their healthcare.

    --His wife saved his life by getting him out of the hospital. She drove 100 miles an hour to get out of Canada and into the hospital in North Dakota. He was in the hospital in Bismark for 11 days. The doctors drained pockets in his stomach and removed 14 CC's of fluid from his stomach.

    --He left the hospital and went to Mayo for a second opinion, and they told him the same thing: he needed surgery. They wanted to do another procedure in a month, so he went home, changed his diet and started working out.

    --What got him here was an all-protein diet, not enough fiber, so he had to change his diet entirely. He started some natural healing medicine, and did a lot of praying. He went and got a colonoscopy at Mayo on January 5th, and the doctors found nothing. The doctors told him he wouldn't need surgery.

    --He will be back in the gym Thursday morning, and he's going to be ready for everybody and anybody.

    --Brock: "I'm a carnivore. I'm a member of the NRA. Whatever I kill I eat. For years I was surviving on meat and potatos, and when the greens came by I kept passing them." Now he's paying more attention to keeping a balanced diet.

    --On the bad night in Canada: He went to sleep, and woke up in shock and cold sweat. It was a huge problem, he didn't know where he was, and knew he needed medical help. He was far away from the hospital, 2.5-3 hours from what he thought would be a good medical facility.

    --Brock refuses to disclose where he was treated. Says he is mentioning this because he's opposed to President Obama's healthcare plan and he wants to disclose to the citizens of the United States how bad universal healthcare is. Brock is speaking on the behalf of Americans, and on behalf of doctors (He was speaking to Neil Davidson of the Canadian press at this point). Machinery at the Canadian hospital wasn't working, so he went to where he could have it done.

    --At his lightest, Brock was at 248. Today he is 273 pounds. Brock joked the last time he weighed 248 pounds was second grade.

    --On a third fight with Frank Mir: He would be thrilled to fight Frank Mir. Didn't beat him as bad as he could, would like to get his hands on "that stalker." Says Frank Mir is his stalker now, and has made that his mission in life, so he would be happy to take care of that again.

    --Brock is feeling great, was back in the gym last week helping sparring partners. Brock isn't dwelling on the past, thinks he will be better than ever. Says all the other heavyweights are ****ting their pants.

    --Brock is unhappy about his camp coming out and saying things. He wants to get rid of those people, mad about them speaking on his behalf. Brock is a private guy. He didn't want to talk to anyone before because there was nothing to say.

    --Brock is not a believer in socialism.

    Well no **** if you just eat nothing but huge amounts of saturated fats and starches while training hardcore you're going to be killing your body.

    I want to see Lesnar vs. Carwin baaaaaaaaad! Lesnar would destroy Mir again and I think Carwin has a legit shot at beating Lesnar. Hopefully Carwin won't get caught in a submission and he defeats Mir.

    Good to hear he is back and training again. Would love to see him fight Carwin and/or the winner of Nog/Cain.

    However, his comments are pretty misguided. From every international report in the world, the US health care system sucks. Outside of perhaps emergency care, our system is in fact nowhere near the best in the world...

    Can't wait to see some of the matchups in the heavyweight division now that he's back.

    Hopefully there is a lot of buzz when he returns, and that makes boxing panic and put together Pac/Mayweather. This could be big news for boxing. Brock's return is going to be a big deal and might have to force them to put together the fights fans want to see.

    Thanks for speaking on behalf of the Doctors Brock -- i'm sure they appreciate your expertise on the subject.

    I'm confused by this. Is Brock coming back to the octagon or is he going to run for office? What tha. So strange that he had to throw politics into the majority of this. Let's see, he's a carnivore and a huge NRA member. And he opposes anything Obama does? Naaahhh You don't say. Get outta here

    So he thinks we have the best doctors in the U.S. but he didn't follow their advice and instead changed his diet and started "some natural healing medicine" that worked and proved the doctors were wrong about him needing another surgery?

    Not much of an endorsement of U.S. doctors, Brock.

    Oh well, he's going to kill Mir or Corwin. Mir actually stands a better chance since he has fought Brock twice. Corwin has a puncher's chance and that's about it. He's going to get murdered if he faces Lesnar.

    Lol... that is true in most places of the world...money will always allow you to go see the best specialists and most highly regarded individuals in any field. Seeing as how many people in the US lack adequate health care, I would say a lot of it sucks...by the way, this isn't saying the doctors in the US sucks...just that the healthcare system needs some type of change (although I don't think Obama's plan is it).

    That's because there is no evidence linking anabolic steroids to diverticulosis. People just prefer to go "oh, it's steroids" because that's easier than educating themselves and finding out maybe they didn't know what the hell they were talking about in the first place.

    Yeah, I don't think there is any current evidence that Lesnar is taking steroids but I think the conclusion most people jump to is what he did to his body during his WWE years...

    I would love nothing more than to see him get back into the ring (healthy, of course) to receive an armbar from Big Nog.

    Good to see him back but some pretty misguided comments about international health care. I live in Australia and there is certainly nothing wrong with our structure, I won't go into US healthcare but just say I am glad that if anything happens to me I can go to the hospital, get fixed and not spend a cent.

    Good news, not the biggest Lesnar fan, but I love watching him in the octagon. A man of that size should not move like he does.
