UFC interim heavyweight champion, Shane Carwin made an appearance on ESPN ’s SportsCenter today.


Carwin, a colossal figure, wore Dethrone apparel and spoke very confidently in his interview with ESPN host Josh Elliott.


Confidence might be an understatement.


During part of the interview with Elliott, Carwin stated, “You’re looking at the top two heavyweights in the world. He’s got the real belt and I’m coming after it Saturday.”



“You’re going to see Brock Lesnar knocked out on the canvas.”


Knocking the behemoth champion unconscious is a bold statement, but it's being made by arguably the only man that can match Lesnar size for size.


The fight between Carwin and Lesnar will be the main event on what very well could be this year's biggest UFC PPV event.
