    Carwin up next for Lesnar?

    Was roaming around the net and found this:


    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."
    here is one link:

    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.

    Carwin will embarass Lesnar.

    It doesn't make it past the 2:11 mark.

    I think that Carwin will win as well... at least I want him to win. He is a big dude. It's gonna depend who lands the lucky shot first.

    Carwin knocked the **** out of Gonzaga with a half-assed arm punch, and I'm hazarding a guess that Gonzaga has a sliiiightly better chin than Lesnar. I could be wrong though.

    My money's on an early ko though. Hope Carwin works the takedown defense.

    Also, this makes me smile and is kinda related to the topic, so there.

    I would very much have liked to have seen Carwin win a couple more fights before being given a shot at Lesnar. It all feels a little rushed, almost like they are trying to quickly 'dethrone' Lesnar as a knee-jerk reaction to not being able to set up the Lesnar-Fedor fight. After all no-one cares about Fedor-Carwin, and once Lesnar has had his streak broken no one will care about Fedor-Lesnar either, urgo, no-one (well your casual fan) will give a **** about Fedor.

    Carwin is as good a contender as any at the moment but if Lesnar plays it safe he will walk this one.

    lots of people hate lesnar for his pro wrestling. but he's a big threat to anyone in the heavyweight division. his neutralisation of frank mirs half guard was scary. if he gets on top of you and your bottom game is worse than frank mirs then you're done. he will take pretty much anyone down, whether he can take carwin down remains to be seem though.

    I think that Lesnar will come out with the win in this one. However its probably the most interesting match yet, due to both the size and wrestling ability combined. Still I reckon that Lesnar will get him down and just GNP him from there. I also think that Lesnar is faster than Carwin and that could play a decisive part in the wrestling.

    Having said that Carwin has lead in his hands and he could well knock Lesnar out, I just don't really see it happening, despite the fact that striking seems to be the weakest part of Lesnar's game (despite knocking down Randy with that right).

    Still I would like to see Carwin win. Also is it just me or does anyone else wish Kongo could wrestle?

    Please God, I don't really believe in you normally, but if you're out there, let Carwin KO Lesnar with his leg all twisted up in Cro Cop fashion, so there can be 50 million hilarious gifs made of it.
