Although their heavyweight showdown is still weeks away, Shane Carwin claims that he is ready to fight now. In fact, there appears to be a lot more bad blood behind this UFC 106 title scrap than initially anticipated and the challenger is ready to shut Brock Lesnar up.
“This is the first time that I am getting ready for a fight with a little hate for my opponent,” Carwin told Heavy.com. “He continues to fuel the fire with his ignorant comments about my opponents and my record. Next thing you know, he will tell you his high school was bigger then mine and therefore that’ll be the deciding factor.”
Odd that the former WWE star would bring up Carwin’s perfect 11-0 record when he’s only had five fights in total himself, one of which was a loss. But who knows, maybe Lesnar’s senior class will prove to be bigger than Carwin’s …
Back to what might actually impact their ginormous showdown, Carwin states that, although he is taking his lumps everyday, he is in the midst of experiencing the best training camp of his brief MMA career.
“The camp is going great,” Carwin said. “We train pretty hard, and getting beat up every day by some of the elite athletes in the sport doesn’t hurt. Well, it hurts, but it’s a good kind of hurt.”
If he’s enjoying the “good kind of hurt now,” he’s hoping Lesnar will be suffering through the “bad kind of hurt” on November 21st inside the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“I am ready. I wish I could kick [Brock Lesnar’s] ass tomorrow,” Carwin emphatically stated.
This fight could prove to be an explosive one as Carwin poses devastating knockout power in both of his haymakers. However, he also comes from a strong wrestling background so don’t be surprised if he’s not uncomfortable if this one goes to the mat.
“I really don’t care where the fight goes,” Carwin stated. “He is not going to be able to lay on top of me like he has against the smaller guys he’s faced. He won’t have a huge advantage anywhere, so I will be ready for whatever happens.”
