Ohhh, what a shame, i was waiting for this to happened, and now will have to wait next year for it to happen. I really like to see this two behemoth fight each other in the octagon. But Lesnar the reigning UFC heavyweight champion was forced to withdraw Monday from his highly anticipated fight this November 21 against Shane Carwin.

UFC president Dana White confirmed the news, saying Lesnar has been ill for more than 3 and a hlaf weeks and unable to train. With the bout at UFC 106 less than a month away, Lesnar was forced to postpone the title defense.

"He said he's never been this sick in his life," White said. "He said it's been going on for a long time and he just hasn't been able to shake it."

The fight matched two of the biggest and most powerful heavyweights in the UFC. Lesnar (4-1), a former WWE star, was a junior college and NCAA division 1 wrestling champion. Carwin (11-0) is a former Division 2 national wrestling champion. Both weight around 295 pounds and cut weight to make the heavyweight division's 265 pound limit.
