Shane Carwin Gets ‘Unfollowed’ by the UFC, Requests Scott Coker’s Phone Number

Following his loss to Brock Lesnar at UFC 116, Shane Carwin‘s online persona seemed to change from "strong, silent type," to "loose cannon who will shout down everybody from fans to MMA blogs to his own employers." And while we’re not going to criticize a fighter for letting their personality hang out a little more, we will offer this one bit of advice: Be careful, bro.

Last month, Carwin publicly blasted the UFC for banning GOOD4U drinks as a UFC sponsor. Last night, he vented more anger via Twitter after apparently being "blocked" by the UFC’s official account. And then, he asked (jokingly, we hope) for Scott Coker’s number, which is not the kind of joke that Dana White would find amusing.

Carwin is far too valuable to be straight-up fired for his attitude, Duffee-style. But after these Twitter-outbursts, the recent steroid accusations, and his unwillingness to do media appearances leading up to the Lesnar fight, he can’t be the UFC’s favorite person right now. So please, Shane, stop self-sabotaging. And if Pinkberry offers gift baskets, make sure there’s one on Dana’s desk by tomorrow morning.

Update: Don’t worry, the UFC has unblocked Shane.

Twitter? has this ever made any fighter more popular? who gains fans from twitter? why would you put your verbal diarrhea on the web?
I call my boss a cunt 5 times a day, tell my missus the neighbour is spying on us, I am convinced the squirrels in my garden are up to no good---- but I'm not going to put it in print so I then have to spend the next 3 weeks back peddling like Clinton.....

Yes, the hatred grows strongly within you. Turn to the darkside!

What a moron. I guess he really wants to be an engineer!

Come on Shane... Dana White is not going to fire you by blocking you on Twitter. He's gonna do it in a classy way, like a text message.

Overeem vs Carwin...now that would be a fucking fight.

Well it is not like he needs the UFC to survive so I am glad to see it. I do believe he can become the champ in the UFC, but I will follow him as a fan if he goes elsewhere.

I was really beginning to suspect that Carwin has a lot of sand in his vagina.
Gladheateher- November 22, 2010 at 9:02 am
Really? In this day and age of technological advances can you be that surprised that Carwin, hasnt found more than one way to un-naturally increase the output of any of his performances. We've all seen how big the guy is. We know his monster hands couldnt press the keys on any device to write that.

I'm kind of surprised he didn't gas himself out heading toward the 140 character tweet max.

Excessive use of steroids fry ones brain. Good thing he has a real job, he is going to need it.
LoneWolf- November 22, 2010 at 8:06 am
Does he not pay attention to what happens to fighters that say or do anything to piss Dana off? What an idiot. He needs some lessons from country b-fast. I'll be so pissed if he gets some BS fight or worse no fight because he can't keep it shut.

No worries, Bjorn Rebney passed along Coker's number to Shane.
