As we have seen for the past few days, UFC heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar and interim champion, Shane Carwin both made appearances on ESPN's SportsCenter.

 

In addition to the gigantic heavyweights, former light heavyweight champion, Rashad Evans made an appearance on today's edition of SportsCenter.

 

Evans and Carwin are teammates under coach Greg Jackson and Evans appears on ESPN MMA Live so it is no surprise to see him making an appearance on the show.

 

The former 205 lb. champion gave his thoughts and prediction on the heavyweight title showdown tomorrow night.

 

Lesnar’s striking:

 

“He hits hard but for the most part, he pushes a lot of his punches.”

 

Lesnar’s wrestling ability:

 

“He’s an excellent wrestler, he was on the top in college.”

 

Carwin’s striking:

 

“Carwin loves to throw combinations, for the most part he loves to exchange and hit and be hit.”

 

Evan’s prediction for the Lesnar versus Carwin showdown.

 

“I don’t think you’re going to see the second round again, if Brock can’t get the takedown then he’s going to get knocked out.”

 

Before Lesnar, Carwin and the rest of the world class mixed martial artists step inside of the Octagon tomorrow night, Spike TV will air the weigh-ins for UFC 116 LIVE at 7 pm ET.
