UFC 141: Brock Lesnar rumors 'not true' says Dana White: Ex-champ healthy and 'feeling good'

New, comments

He's calling bullshit.

All that Internet scuttlebutt about Lesnar being worse for the wear following intestinal surgery is just another Brock-and-bull story.

That's according to UFC President Dana White, who recently told media members (via MMA Nation) the UFC 141 headliner, who tries to get back into the heavyweight title hunt against Alistair Overeem on Dec. 30 in Las Vegas, Nevada, is so pleasant to deal with he actually likes talking to him on the phone.

"It's bullshit, it's not true. And it actually can't be any further from the truth. When I talk to this guy, he's so healthy and feeling so good, that he's actually quite pleasant to talk to these days. I actually like talking to him on the phone. I can have a conversation with him forever on the phone now. It's like night and day."

Hear more from White on Lesnar's health, FUEL TV programming and competing against himself, after the jump.
