After losing to Alistair Overeem, and officially announcing his retirement, Brock Lesnar was no where to be seen on the post-fight press conference. Dana White said the former heavyweight champion was still being attended to by the medical staff, but the UFC President did tell reporters about his brief conversation with Lesnar. (Transcribed by MMA Weekly):
“A lot of people don’t realize what that feels like, he said ‘I think my rib’s broken, I don’t know what a broken rib feels like, but if it hurts worse than this I don’t want to feel it,” White revealed from his conversation with Lesnar.
Brock Lesnar took multiple knee strikes before, Overeem eventually landed that heavy body kick that put him down for good.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission will be releasing the medical suspensions in the coming days, so we will know more about the status of his injury by then. As always, stay tuned to BloodyElbow.com as we keep you updated on the situation.
