Carwin up next for Lesnar?
Was roaming around the net and found this:
here is one link:
Sherdog.com says UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar will meet Shane Carwin at UFC 106 on Nov. 21 in Las Vegas.
MMAMadness.com was the first to report on the card shift that will see Carwin move from a scheduled bout against Cain Velasquez at UFC 104.
Sherdog.com says scheduling problems led to the cancellation of the Carwin-Velasquez fight.
Carwin moved up to the title shot following fast first-round TKOs over Neil Wain at UFC 89 and Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC 96.
Randy Couture, who has already lost to Lesnar, suggests: "I think using the cage and finding ways to make him fight off of his back is probably the way to get to him and potentially beat him."
So early thoughts on this one?
I see Carwin being a very real threat to Lesnar. He is big, has heavy hands, good agility, and uses the cage very well. The only downfall I see is if it starts to go the distance, we haven't seen Carwin (or Lesnar for that fact) in the later rounds.
