Mono pushes back Lesnar-Carwin battle
The fight, originally scheduled for Nov. 21, was pushed back to January because of a Lesnar illness. Now, White says Lesnar has mononucleosis and can't train for six weeks, according to his text to the Times.
UFC officials said they hope to have Lesnar back in the Octagon by March.
"Guys my manager Jason Genet just told me that UFC 108 is not happening," Carwin wrote at shane-carwin.com. "Brock has Mono and what the UFC has told me is that I have earned a title shoot [sic] but I have to wait for the title holder. I hope Brock gets well soon."
The Nov. 21 card -- UFC 104 -- will feature Tito Ortiz against Forrest Griffin as its main event.
Lesnar hasn't fought since July at UFC 100. Carwin is undefeated through 11 pro fights, but has not competed since March.
