Now UFC President Dana White tells celeb gossip site TMZ that the heavyweight champion has an intestinal disorder that requires "major surgery" and that he may never fight again.
White tells us Lesnar -- the UFCheavyweight champ -- is "very, very sick" with some sort of intestinal disorder, although listening to White, it sounds a lot more serious than that. White says the condition will require "major surgery."
