After Carwin, Who’s Next For Brock?

1 of 12

With U.F.C. 106 fast approaching along with the usual speculation and arguments, the million dollar question is; Who’s Next? Shane Carwin will certainly pose a few problems for the U.F.C. Heavyweight Champion.

The Champ may not be able to throw Carwin around as easily as he has other opponents, and Carwin is no slouch when it comes to wrestling. A former NCAA Div.II Champion himself Carwin knows his share of holds and throws.

Carwin holds an impressive 11-0 record in MMA, although the only fighter I can honestly say I’ve seen him fight who may have been a top ten prospect is Gabriel Gonzaga. And in the under two minute fight he looked tired.

Sorry “Sports Fans” but I don’t think Shane Carwin is going to be the man to dethrone Brock Lesnar. He has heavy hands, but he’s very slow. I see Lesnar taking him down and pounding out a quick victory.

Like him or not Brock is quick and agile, he moves like a Welterweight. He’s explosive, strong and getting better with every fight. His cardio is great for a guy his size.

On Nov. 21st. 2009 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center Brock Lesnar will walk out of the “Octagon” the U.F.C. Heavyweight Champion. So who’s next?

I suppose there’s always the prospect of a Lesnar vs. Mir 3 I’m sure that would attract attention and be a short entertaining fight. Cain Velasquez is impressive with a 6-0 record. His cardio is good and he does well standing or on the ground.

Junior Dos Santos’ destruction of Mirko Cro Cop surely had his stock rise on the rankings lists. With a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and quick hands Dos Santos has a chance of getting out of the first round fairly unscathed.

Unless he’s like fellow Brazilian Royce Gracie I don’t see him surviving through the next few rounds, again he’s just too small.

Having watched the first few episodes of The Ultimate Fighter Season 10, I don’t see anyone on the show that has a chance of competing with Brock for the title.

With Feardor out of the picture “Sports Fans” I just don’t see anyone on the horizon who can knock Brock off of his throne. We may need a few seasons of TUF to find a worthy opponent…well one who stands a chance. That’s all for now.
