Shane Carwin Struggles With The Weight of Public Attention on Social Networking Site

Perhaps someone should explain the concept of Twitter to Shane Carwin because he seems surprised that people are reading what he writes on his page, despite the fact that this is the sole reason for the existence of Twitter.  The heavyweight contender posted some news about his next fight (October 24 in L.A., which puts it at UFC 104) on the social networking website, and apparently he wasn’t supposed to since it hasn’t been officially agreed to by both sides.  Carwin and Cain Velasquez seemed to be on a collision course following Velasquez’s win over Cheick Kongo at UFC 99, so it’s not like he revealed the combination to the safe where Lorenzo Fertitta keeps his getaway money.  Still, he did put Cain on the spot.  If the bout doesn’t happen now, we’ll all know whose bitchassness is to blame.

This should be good but I'll probably take Carwin on this as the two guys have a pretty similar approach and Carwin's got the size advantage. The only thing we don't know about is his cardio which Cain does have, but will it last long enough to make a difference? Kongo nearly put him down 3 times and I doubt he'll take down Carwin after shots like those.

You don't understand it?

Dude this is the most logical fight and one everyone wants to see, UFC is doing the right thing not protecting one guy or the other. They putting them out there and giving us the next big thing.

Serious whoever wins this fight is going to be a huge star and will be right in the HW title picture, both are pretty well known to us and what a way to build to a dream matchup with either of them versus Lesner/Mir.

Lesner-Carwin is a huge fight but at this point Carwin is not a big enough of a name(but damn close)

I think finally UFC is doing this the right way, put the next 2 beasts out there and let us see who the hell survives.

I love this fight as a fan, but I don't really understand why Joe Silva would want to put his 2 HW undefeated prodigies in a cage together with the certainty that one of them is going to be walking out with a loss. If either of these guys would have lost to gatekeeper vets like Kongo or Gonzaga, it would have been excused as part of the learning curve, but the winner doesn't prove much by beating another "rookie", and a loss to another "up and comer" will knock the loser out of title contention for at least 2 or 3 rehab fights.

I can't wait to see this rumble, but I just don't get what's in it for the UFC marketing machine.

I nominate Shane Carwin for the Smartest Man in The UFC prize for his deep understanding of marketing and its role in the entertainment industry.

I don't see Carwin on all fours, maybe on his back but not pulling a Kongo!

Btw , this twitter shit is getting outta hand.

Carwin will have his longest fight to date. Cain will wake up to be told that honor is his.
