Brock Lesnar Illness Update: Lesnar Is Back At Home, Friend Says

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, Minn. — A friend of UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar says the ultimate fighter is back at his home in Alexandria, Minnesota, recovering from a bacterial infection.

Larry Novotny says Lesnar was released from a hospital in Bismarck, N.D., on Tuesday and won't make any decisions about his career until his health has improved. Novotny is Lesnar's chiropractor.

Lesnar grew up on a dairy farm in Webster, S.D., and is a former wrestler at Bismarck State College. He was an NCAA heavyweight wrestling champion, and later wrestled professionally with World Wrestling Entertainment Inc.

He announced last month he was withdrawing from his Nov. 21 UFC title defense match because of an unspecified illness.
