I think Shane Carwin is a handful for any Heavyweight in the world. Shane gassed primarily because of poor decision making - had he controlled himself rather than went all out crazy on Brock for 4 minutes we probably would have had a new champion crowned that night. This is a mistake i doubt he would make again. If it truly where a deficiency in his cardio (which i find hard to believe coming from the Jackson camp) then again this would obviously be something they would address.
I sincerely doubt we will see Shane gas in that manner again.
With regard to a fight against Cain, i think the champs best bet would be to try and get the fight to the ground. He should be able too, but Carwin was able to prevent Brocks takedowns so who knows. If Carwin fought smart, possibly implementing a similar game plan to the one he used against Mir, then Cain could find himself in trouble. And if you stand and box with Carwin, there is a strong chance he will catch you - if he does, goodnight.
Obviously Cain would be the favourite, i just genuinely believe that Carwin is Cain's most difficult match up. I think Cain will overcome JDS easier than he would Shane.
And i certainly dont think any of them will hold the title for an extended period of time.
