UFC interim heavyweight champion Shane Carwin continues to do no wrong. Not only is he the most fan-friendly MMA superstar on the planet, but the 6-foot-2, 295-pounder may be the sport’s most athletic as well.

Although Carwin’s been preparing relentlessly for his blockbuster title unification bout against champ Brock Lesnar at UFC 116, he took a moment to show-off his basketball skills just in time for next month’s NBA Draft.

Unfortunately for scouts, footage on Carwin’s B-Ball abilities are strictly limited to what he posts on his official website. On the bright side, the 35-year-old released two clips yesterday featuring his diversified game.
