Its a no go for Brock Lesnar vs Shane Carwin at UFC 108. Apparently Brock Lesnar has a case of mono.

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 shoot but I have to wait for the title holder. [ShaneCarwin]
