Carwin weighs in on Lesnar vs. VelasquezPosted on October 25, 2010, 09:56 AM by Jamie Kennedy
UFC Heavyweight contender Shane Carwin weighed in on Saturday's Heavyweight title fight in Anaheim, California between Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez.
"What Cain did is what great fighters do, they learn from what they can study. How would have my fight have turned out if I had let Brock stand up and knock him down again and again? It really doesn't matter about what happened last night or in July, the only thing that matters is what is to be."
Carwin then went on to share his feelings on Lesnar's title reign and those who are ready to write the former champ off:
"Those of you writing Brock off, Don't! The man walked into the UFC at the top level (who does that?) and won and defended the UFC Heavyweight belt. He took a beating from me and came back and found a way to win, he nearly lost his life and came back and found a way to win. He is 4 -2 in the UFC and some of the wins are UFC Heavyweight title defenses! He is a real Champion and a real warrior and as long as he keeps training and learning MMA, he will continue to be a force. Every great Champion will lose and the great ones rise again and it would not surprise me to see Brock defending the title again one day. Win or lose he should be respected for being the warrior he is."
Carwin then spoke in regard to the current depth of the Heavyweight division:
"The UFC Heavyweight division has an amazing crop of fighters right now with four worthy title holders (Cain, Brock, JDS and myself) and alot of amazing talent knocking on the door to get their name on the list for a title shot. This is going to be the era of the UFC Heavyweights and I am here to make an impact!"
Some interesting thoughts from the Engineer, I wonder how Frank Mir, Big Nog and others feel about Carwins list of worthy title holders.
