Shane Carwin Wants You to Leave Brock Lesnar Alone

(…and don’t even get him started on Britney Spears.)

UFC heavyweight contender Shane Carwin, typically one of Brock Lesnar’s harshest critics, has taken to the internet to defend the champ and shame the fans who doubt that his illness is real.  In a message posted to the UG forum, Carwin says that you don’t have to like Lesnar and his “antics,” but says fans “should have respect for the human side of what is happening here.”  In addition to offering his condolences and prayers for Lesnar’s full recovery, Carwin also made it very clear that he doesn’t want Lesnar to be stripped of the title just because he’s too sick to defend it: 


Talk of stripping a man of his title due to illness will set this sport back farther then anything Brock has ever said. We need our Champions healthy and defending. I know the show will go on but to be a Champion you must beat a Champion.

In other words, Carwin’s record as the classiest son of a bitch in all of MMA remains unblemished.  Obviously, he’s right.  As much as some of us might want to see Carwin put his enormous fist through Lesnar’s face, it’s far more important to see Lesnar get healthy.  He may not be the nicest or the most compassionate guy in the world, but he’s still a human being.   A gigantic, ill-tempered human being, who we all hope makes a quick and complete recovery.

First of all, everyone needs to shut up about some dumb ass Interim belt that serves no purpose. That crap is worthless and doesnt verify you as champ whatsoever. Secondly, some of you trolls need to stop nuthugging Fedors fat hairy balls and smarten up already. And lastly, I think Lesnar is going to destroy Carwin. Just being realistic.

Carwin is smart...He he has to use the "to be a champ, you have a beat a champ" line because he knows if he wins an interim belt it doesn't mean shit. Even if Lesnar is stripped and they flat out give Carwin the title, it doesn't mean as much if he doesn't take the title from Lesnar in the octagon.

It would seem to me that we're at least 6 months away from a Lesnar title defense, so I say lets move on with talk of an interim belt and get back to the Lesnar talk when he's ready to fight.

They are both douche bags. No point in arguing which one is better. Lesnsar knows he a dick, Carwin is posing and pretending not to be a dick. Thats worse. I cant wait for Lesnar to smash Carwin.

just re reading that shit gets me pissed Fuck you carwin!

Of course you don't have a choice your a fuckin nobody. Arlovski and Sylvia both ex champs in the top five, He fought Lindland was working on setting up a coture fight and barnett was Ranked #2 before the roids by about everyone.

Just because danas been calling him a worthless bum for two years and he doesn't feel like making the asshole rich and having the UFC own his ass all the sudden hes protecting his legacy and afraid of fighters in the UFC.

Fuck You carwin! you haven't begun to earn the right to have fedors name leave your mouth. hate that guy hope lesnar stomps him.
One Two- November 17, 2009 at 8:30 pm
@ Xs for Iballs he said some various shit

"I do not have any choice in who I face or when I fight. I am asked to go fight and I do it. We did not hold out for a co-promotion or any other ridiculous terms to fight for the UFC title"

Didn't sit well with me then he goes on to say fedors being fed cans, and isn't fighting anybody this is right after he fought Arlovski and Sylvia and was scheduled to take on barnett

"Since Pride has closed its operations, Fedor has not really fought any elite fighters and he is essentially being fed 'names' that would not have a high percentage chance of beating him,”

then he takes another shot at fedor and his management
"They are working hard on protecting his legacy instead of putting the toughest fights in front of him."

Carwin is awesome.
And I hope that big shit gets well soon, fuck being sick.

Lesnar: Get better so that Shane Carwin can crush you, albeit very, very gently.

Whats wrong did the UFC do something to you? You're usually on there nuts loving everything they do and say, why so butt hurt?

Lesnar's a dick, Carwin's too nice. You fickle pricks. Who, in reality, gives a shit? Get them both 100% and put them in a cage. I'm ready to see this shit go down already.

Yo One Two,

What'd he say about Fedor?
Clyde- November 17, 2009 at 4:03 pm
I think the only reason I'd want Brock to get better is to see him get beaten. If Brock wins, I'd feel it was all a waste of time. But we're all aware that interim belts suck, so I think we all just have to wait patiently for the champ to get well.

I really would like to just hear what is wrong with Brock so we can all stop with the uneducated guess work. Yeah, you have the right to privacy and all but if your sick and off work, you've got to give the boss notice and let him know when to expect you back in the office.

And while I do detest political correctness at times, I think playing up the nice guy thing is probably wise when your under the public eye. If everyone knows who you are then it's not smart to just say "the cunt's a lying faking faggot. He's probably caugt AIDS from a dirty steroid needle or from some nigger fucking him in the ass" For some reason, people seem to get upset about things like that, especially when you've got no proof any of it's true. It's political correctness gone mad I tells you.

Better to be the perfect gentleman.

his illness may in fact be real....the person who is fucking it up the most for brock lesnar is DANA WHITE by posting some ridiculous new changing story EVERYDAY about the condition of cock chestnar. Today he's almost dying, tomorrow he's fine. yesterday he had surgery, and next week he'll be in Costa Rica on vacation....come on Dana, be consistent. if you dont know the status of Brock Lesnar, DO NOT MAKE IT UP JUST TO SAY SOMETHING! stick to factual evidence idiot.

Andre the Giant needed Hulk Hogan, The Iron Sheik needed Sgt. Slaughter, and that filthy fucking Bobby the Brain Heenan needed Gorilla Monsoon. Shane is here to give the heavyweight universe balance.
skeletor- November 17, 2009 at 1:32 pm
if Gonzaga could take a punch we wouldn't even be talking about this clown. carwin was getting wrecked in that fight.
Goog- November 17, 2009 at 1:30 pm
I'd have more respect for Carwin if he'd admit that he, too, has been on the juice for a while. Doubt it'll ever happen, but if he wants to be this lovable, respect-worthy guy... he should come clean.

Overall, he seems like a nice guy and could be a good fighter, but just not running his mouth like Lesnar doesn't make him any better if they're all on drugs in the same manner. But give me 1000 guys like Shane over 1 Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Proper grammar...use of punctuation...good spelling.

This message was posted on a Jitterbug phone. I'll bet my life on it.
steampunk22- November 17, 2009 at 1:20 pm

He knows what to say, it comes on a little strong sometime but I think thats just because there arent many people saying ANYTHING nice, so to swim against the stream in that regard stands out even more. But, I'd rather have someone lying and being nice then just being a dick. If thats the alternative.
skeletor- November 17, 2009 at 1:18 pm
@Mike Milbury
I agree. At first i wanted him to kill Lesnar, but the more I hear him talk the more I dislike him. It's like he has his own PR team and he feels like he always needs to be PC. With Lesnar at least we know he's a dick and he's cool with it. I still can't tell what this asshole is all about. Except that the Ben's love swinging from his nuts. Put that in your notebook.
Mike Milbury- November 17, 2009 at 1:11 pm
I find Carwin teeters closer to the "holier-than-thou" attitude than the "nice guy" attitude. Still enjoy watching him fight though.
