UFC Quick Quote: Brock Lesnar vs Shane Carwin at UFC 108 is not happening

"Guys, my manager Jason Genet just told me that UFC 108 is not happening. Brock has Mono and what the UFC has told me is that I have earned the title shot but I have to wait for the title holder."

-- UFC heavyweight number one contender Shane Carwin engineers another blog post at ShaneCarwin.com confirming his title fight against Brock Lesnar will not happen at UFC 108 on Jan. 2 due to the champ's lingering illness. The two goliaths were originally set to throw down at UFC 106 on Nov. 21; however, Lesnar was forced to withdraw from the event after spending more than three weeks battling illness, prompting the UFC to postpone the match to a pending date of early 2010. Is this a case for another interim title? Or should the fans (and Carwin) wait patiently for Lesnar to nurse himself back to health? Thoughts?
