Shane Carwin and UFC 125
Shane Carwin is expected to return to the octagon at UFC 125 on Jan 1. Carwin tweeted today “I expect to be on the January 1st card. I do not have an opponent yet. Any takers? @UFC” Carwin hasn’t been in action since his title fight loss to the “Vanilla Gorilla” Brock Lesnar at UFC 116. Carwin did expose Lesnar in the 1st round and almost finished the fight. Unfortunately almost doesn’t make you a champion. Carwin was all gassed out by the 2nd round and Lesnar was able to get a take-down then caught Carwin in a sweet arm-triangle choke to successfully defend his Heavy-Weight Title. Also rumored for UFC 125 is Antonio McKee vs. Jacob Volkmann, Thiago Silva vs. Brandon Vera, Chris Leben vs. Brian Stann and for the Lightweight Title, Champ Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard. Nothing is official right now.
