Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar will be out for the rest of the 2011 year after undergoing surgery to remove a 12 inch section of his colon that was diseased with diverticulitis.  Lesnar was scheduled to meet Junior Dos Santos on June 11 at UFC 131 but had to withdraw after recurring stomach issues.  UFC President Dana White said the surgery was a success and that Lesnar is hopeful to return to the octagon in January of 2012.
