Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Shane Carwin Doesn’t Like Brock Lesnar’s Taste in Beer, Either

Shane Carwin
(Bud Light enthusiast/big scary dude Shane Carwin.)

Dana White was quick to latch on to the personal angle when playing up the Brock Lesnar/Shane Carwin title fight planned for UFC 106 on November 21, telling Dave Meltzer that Carwin “hates” Lesnar.  When I got in touch with The Engineer of Pain for this feature, he told me that, “hate is a strong word, but yeah, I hate what he did after UFC 100.  I hate that he disrespected the greatest sporting fans in the world and I can’t wait to fight him.”

Carwin was also critical of Lesnar’s tirade against Bud Light – not just as a fellow UFC employee, but also as beer-drinker:

“[T]alking trash about your boss’s business partners is just ridiculous.  I live in Colorado, the home of Coors, and me and my friends drink Bud Light.  Can he really even like Coors?  Or is he saying if you pay him enough money he will drink anything?”

An argument over domestic beer.  Great fights have been built on less, I suppose.  And if you’re wondering whether fighting for the UFC heavyweight title is enough to make Carwin quit his full-time job as an engineer, he’s got news for you:

I do not think you can make it in the UFC without putting in the hours.  That being said, there is a limited amount of hours that any athlete can really give to training without burning out.  I think I am doing just fine.  My reasons for keeping my job are not about the money or time.  I have a young son that has been my rock through the highs of heading to the NFL, to the lows of no one in the NFL knowing [my] name.  When everything seemed dark he was the light that kept me going.  I knew right then that everything my mother had told me about getting my degree, putting my education before the NFL were as much for my well being as they were for those that were relying on me.  I made a commitment to never get caught up in a quest that did not have some sort of guaranteed base for my family and I.  

I want my son to grow up knowing that being a man is not about getting paid to drink beer but it is about providing for your family and making honorable choices even when those choices are not in alignment with what most people would choose.  I want my kids to know that contributing to society and earning your way through life is what this country was founded on.

In other words, there will probably not be an engineering job opening up in Colorado even if Carwin beats Lesnar to become the champ.  Somebody had better tell Kimbo the bad news.  He’s going to need a new career back-up plan.

A fight to decide which is better, Bud Light vs. Coors?!? So there's hope that someday we may be able to resolve the Tastes Great/Less Filling debate.

Man you are such a no business minded little bitch. Oh, and I felt too bad to tell her but the $20 I left on your moms dresser was for the douche she so desperatly needs. But look who I'm telling, as much as you hit that shit; you already know. Now again, pull that dick out of your mouth and put it back in your ass. Fucking dumbass!
UFC fan- August 23, 2009 at 4:46 pm
glenwo2, NOBODY read your piles of shit responses, sorry. you are a waste of time on this board.
just cause you have all day to post 15 to 20 times in a row doesn't make you smart, it just makes you a geek with no girl.
Go beat off to your poster of cock chestner and stay off this hub.

Even the sublety of "cheers" in a discussion titled "Shane Carwin Doesn't Like Brock Lesnar's Taste in Beer, Either" is lost on this stupid kid.

Though, you clearly don't understand the definition of grandstanding. Choosing a humble life-style, with a clear focus on family life and personal growth out of the cage can hardly be considered grandstanding.

Posting how superior it is on the internet for as many people to read as possible is what I am referring to, in combination with a looking down, holier than thou attitude. Funny how after I post a breakdown of it, now its obvious. Im sure lots of other things go over your head as well.

You call me a fag and give me a winking icon? you seem confused.
GetUpAndKill- August 23, 2009 at 1:21 pm
@ reddog're a WWE fag, abused step-child and now you can officially qualify yourself as captain obvious.

Though, you clearly don't understand the definition of grandstanding. Choosing a humble life-style, with a clear fous on family life and personal growth out of the cage can hardly be considered grandstanding.

But, you know good for you...stay positive, life doesn't always have to be this way. Give yourself a pat on the back for making it this far.

Cheers ;)

reddog- August 23, 2009 at 10:52 am

Oh, i missed your first post where you think carwin's wrestiling is anywhere NEAR brock's. Sure it is. Then something about decorations. then you ramble on about GSP. Wow, great, pat yourself on the back.

My contribution included making fun of Carwin's soapbox speech, then making fun of his (unaccepted) nickname. And I referenced natty ice due to the whole bud light/coors battle. You may have noticed we are on a site named "cagepotato" which is a play on words of "couchpotato", and is a format I was using. Everything I referenced has had its own post or several on here.

So, Im a wwe fag with daddy issues because i hate carwin's grandstanding? Carwin is using the timetested recipe for fight setup, go after the title holder in the media, and it worked. Now he is in "hype the hatred" mode.

ReDx- August 23, 2009 at 10:22 am
Holy shit I Hate Bisping, how much of a fucking idiot are you? I just finished telling you that the UK judge that scored it 30-27 was for HAMILL. Then you go and flip it around to fit your little conspiracy, damn you're stupid.
KarmaAteMyCat- August 23, 2009 at 9:50 am
Seriously, after this fight none you Brock haters can talk. So lets get this shit going. I wanna see this in cement. GLenwo2 are you related to Hal cause you spam like him and sure use a whole lot of symbols that just aren't needed. Brocks gonna USE all that POWER you complained about on yer good buddie Shane Carwin. I've been a Fan of Carwins long before any of you fruit booters had even heard of the guy( QUICK RUN TO WIKIPEDIA AND SPOUT SOME SHIT YOU READ). So fuck you and fuck carwin and fuck hating on Brock yer logic is skewed get bent.

Karma Served with a hint of Salt.

Just because Carwin's wrestling is supposedly "a league below Lesnar's" does not mean anything. Carwin is still a decorated wrestler with a tonne of experience in a heavy weightclass.

Would you use the same criteria for predicting any wrestler vs. GSP who had zero previous wrestling experience? Given GSP's track record against wrestlers NO you wouldn't. So why would it matter in Carwin's case?

It's nice to see that Carwin has his head in the right place as well. With the right gameplan I am confident Carwin beats Lesnar.

@ reddog

Sound like you have Daddy issues big fella...but hang in there, thinks will be OK.

Not contributing? Did you read my first post on the board?

And tell me exactly how your post "adds" to the discussion:

Reddog "In other sad news today, Shane "soapbox" Carwin was killed by the incredibly heavy burden of his perfect family life. Pour some natty ice on the ground for him, RIP. The Engineer of Lame"

Fuck, you're a dumb tit!
glenwo2- August 23, 2009 at 9:23 am
Actually, Pete, here's the real summary :

Some UFC fans are absolute DOUCHES. And I'm calling them out on their stupid-ass statements.

That's basically the purpose of my posts and by the way, I *know* that you read all my posts. You wouldn't be complaining about them if you didn't. All I had to do was read between the lines of what you said.

But regardless, it's not "Shane = Bad, Brock = Good" as you stated,

it's Shane = Winning the Title would take a Miracle, Brock = Losing to Shane would be a Miracle.

That pretty much sums it up.

That good enough for a "POINT" in case you missed it, smart-guy?
reddog- August 23, 2009 at 8:42 am
@ getupandkill

wow, way to add to the conversation. first off, i hate the wwe. second, i hate people who think they are better than others because they have a "family life". or that maintaining some 60k/yr engineering job will somehow transform your son into a man. so yes, i stand by my comments. but thanks for your incredibly awesome two cents. fucking tool.

did king mo win
sithlord79- August 23, 2009 at 7:17 am
Dude STFU seriously Shane Carwin has the best chance to beat Brock. Shane knocks dudes out. He knocked out Gabe Gonzaga with a jab. Brock puts down those stupid gay hammer fists untill the ref comes in to stop it. Besides Brock is huge thats how he wins fights. Good old lay and pray with Brock. I see Shane winning this fight by KO. Brock is a Dbag and i can't wait till Shane punches so hard that Brock's jaw is broken into a million pieces and we will never have hear to Brock's 3rd grade vocab every again..We don't care that you want to be Brock's butt buddy. WAR Shane!!!!!!
Machida-Brand-Urine-Drink- August 23, 2009 at 12:24 am
What a fuckin kiss-ass!

Brock will destroy him in Round 2 just like Frank and Randy.

Oh, and for all you guys out there that will say i have a man-crush on Brock or make some statement about his cocksword tattoo, just save it. You all were simply DYING to see him fail and fail miserably. So it is hard for you all to eat crow on this one and deal with the fact that he is YOUR heavyweight champion!

So stop being such sad pandas and just enjoy the fights and the shit talking!
Tai-Pan- August 22, 2009 at 11:49 pm
Thanks Pete, I figured reading all those was a giant waste of time.

BTW Carwin by fist rape, and the new champion of the world...
Sneaky Pete- August 22, 2009 at 11:12 pm
Wow, did everyone just scan past Glenwo2's replies like I did? There might have been a point in there, but I'll be damned if I'm going to wade through all of that and fish it out.

For the rest of you who breezed past his/her post, here's the summary: Shane = Bad, Lesnar = Good.
glenwo2- August 22, 2009 at 10:46 pm
Bisping, If Royce tried "Elbowing" Brock, Royce would find that "elbow" lodged in his ass and it would take the jaws of life to remove it.

Royce has to be counting his lucky-ass stars that he is long since retired and doesn't have to deal with Brock 'cause he would get his ass P@WNED. And that, my friends, is true.

I pick Carwin to kick Brocks cock off......I agree with budsellers that if COCK loses he will quit this sport like he does all sports, cause he is a pussy loser.
Hopefully that happens and all his stupid fucking WWE fans like palmtreeguy will disappear with him.

>>> UFC Fan, you are fucking retarded. He may be a sore loser(he's said it, too) but he's no fucking quitter like YOU. Why don't you do everyone a favor and go train and fight in the UFC yourself and TAKE ON BROCK if you hate him so much....

If by some miracle, Carwin nails brock, you'll be very disappointed when Brock just simply continues to destroy his opponents, get back into Title contention, and get his belt back EASILY.

But, as I alluded to, it would take an absolute MIRACLE for that scenario(Shane winning) to happen...

I can't call a clear winner on this one, but one things for sure I hope Brock gets ktfo. Brock seems to move better than Carwin, but Shane just puts people to sleep.

>>>> Of course he does. Each time I watch Shane fight, I feel like I'm watching a GSP title fight : ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz......

when has lesnar displayed striking skill?"

>>>How about when he popped Heath Herring and knocked him on his ass with a glancing blow? That enough "striking skill" for you?

" when he hid from mir's stirkes? who has ever hid from mirs strike's? wes sims lol. yeah he beat a injured nogueira! but carwin is built a little stronger than sims. lesner has not been hit and if carwin lands he will welcome lesner to a whole new world!!! the surviving game!!!!!"

>>> Nice but problem is : Carwin will not survive. The Cage is BROCK'S HOUSE. Shane is invading the Cage. Brock will have to remove the unwanted guest from the cage. A comfortable bed and room awaits Shane in the hospital upon conclusion of the match.

I finally figured out how to log in here on my damn phone! WOOT! And it would make me very happy to see Carwin smash this big ugly monkey.

>>>> I read that even "ugly monkeys" know how to log into a website with a cellphone. Wonder what that makes you, then?
