UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar announced his "miracle" recovery from a career-threatening digestive disease Wednesday while slamming the health care he received in Canada after falling sick during a hunting trip.

Lesnar said his U.S. doctors were "dumbfounded" at his success in beating diverticulosis and avoiding major surgery to remove part of his colon.

As far as I'm concerned, Lesnar can stay out of Canada forever.

He's the one who abused his body, blaming Canada is the stupidest thing I've ever heard come out of his mouth.

Just when I was starting to warm up to this guy he shows his true colours.

Dear brock, saying that you "love" canada over and over again doesn't change the fact that you sound like a complete idiot while you criticize our health care system.

I would say calling a health care system that your not familiar with a 'Third World' one, based on one experience.....yeah I'd say thats igorant.

Heres my take on health care Canada vs USA

In Canada.....If you’re rich, then Canadian health care is a joke.
In the USA....If you’re poor, then American Health care is a joke.

Now which population has a happier majority?

"They couldn't do nothing for me," he noted in a later media conference call Wednesday. "It was like I was in a Third World country." ----ignorant

I'm speaking on behalf of Americans ----ignorant

"I'm not bashing the Canadian health care, I'm not bashing it at all. I'm a U.S. citizen,. It just so happens I was in Canada. If I would have been in Thailand or Puerto Rico, I would want to get back to the United States, in my homeland, to get my health care." ------lucky you have money, ignorant

"I was just feeling sick, for the longest time throughout my training camp preparing for Carwin," he told the sports news station. "My camp wasn't going well. I missed almost three weeks of training camp. . . I kept going to the doctor, couldn't find out what the problem was." -------American doctors??? ignorant

Exactly. He's entitled to his opinion so what if he prefers American health care it's his choice.

You're reading too much into it. My point was...who cares? Why get so bent? It's not like he beat up your kid sister.

If he would have got the CT scan that the CANADIAN heath care suggested instead of refusing he would have avoided this whole mess. So yes I think canadian heath care sucks when you don't give a crap what the doc thinks... Maybe listen to them brock, then make your decision!

I'm very proud of Canada's health care system and I take it very personally when it is criticized by someone who has no business saying anything about it.

There's a reason Tommy Douglas is the greatest Canadian.

Actually, it was in America when he refused the CT scan.

"Probably the lowest moment was getting care from Canada."


"They couldn't do nothing for me,". "It was like I was in a Third World country."

Actually Americans are the worst when it comes to being butt hurt about someone not liking their country. ;) We will rename a food in revenge. (Freedom fries...really?) ;)
