Shane Carwin, Engineering A Gameplan

Dustin KimbrellContributor IJune 25, 2010

Next Saturday night, the fireworks begin early as the biggest Heavyweight fight in UFC

history is set to take place, As Shane Carwin steps into the octagon with a chance to

nullify his interim title against the man many consider to be the number two ranked

Heavyweight fighter in the world today, (possibly number 1, based on who's judging)

Brock Lesnar. This fight was scheduled to take place at UFC 106, then Brock's illness

came into effect. Re-schedule the bout for UFC 108 "Evans vs Silva" or also known as

"The Bad Luck Card". With Lesnar being "too ill to compete" as Dana White put it,

Carwin was once again forced to set back and wait for his chance to compete for the

title. Now that the man has been offered a title fight twice and then had it taken away

from him, what is he to do? Complain to the boss? No, he remained patient until his

time came. With the champion out of action, what is the UFC to do with their number

1 contender? Enter Frank Mir. I think the UFC was really thinking Mir would win that

fight, so they could set up Lesnar/Mir III. If Mir wins, there goes what Carwin has been

training hard for and had had taken away twice already. That was not to be the case

at UFC 111. In 3:48 seconds, Carwin made quick work of Mir and would now get his

shot at the title. UFC 116, Brock Lesnar will make his anticipated return to the octagon

to take on the heavy-handed Shane Carwin. Dana says Brock was only fighting at

"60%" of his full potential. Brock will def. hold the advantage if this fight goes to the

ground. Although, I believe Carwin will have better wrestling than most think, to where

he will neutralize it and keep the fight standing. There's no secret that Carwin's

gameplan will be to stand and bang, hopefully Brock goes with that plan. If they stand,

this fight has potential classic all over it. I'm going to go ahead and call Carwin winning

this one by way of KO in the 2nd. After seeing the way Rampage looked after his long

lay-off, ring rust could be a huge factor for the champ. Let the fireworks fly on July
