Photos of Shane Carwin's face following a bloody war with Junior dos Santos in the main event of UFC 131 are beginning to flood in, and Bleacher Report is here to compile them in one easy-to-use photo slideshow!
In what was on of the most amazing displays of heart we have ever seen in the Octagon, Carwin narrowly escaped a first-round TKO when he took dozens of shots directly to the face from one of the UFC's most heavily handed punching specialists.
"The Engineer" fought back in the second round and even looked like he might take that round, but it wasn't enough as he was eventually smacked around some more by dos Santos in each of the final two rounds of this fight.
What one almost has to wonder is that, with the UFC's new initiative to include five rounds in even non-title main events in the future, would this fight have made it to five rounds?
Referee Herb Dean even stopped the bout with only a couple minutes left in the third round to make sure that Carwin could continue. Though the doctor determined that he could, it was pretty obvious that Carwin had taken a crazy amount of damage and would need some help from the medical staff after the fight.
So let's take a closer look at the brutal cuts and bruises that Shane Carwin will be dealing with tonight and for the foreseeable future.
