Exclamation "Brock is what they call a 'Draw'. I am what they call a Fighter" - Shane Carwin



“Brock forgets there were no scripts issued with the bout agreements. He better be training for a war because I will be.”

“I feel like I have paid my dues and so have a lot of fighters waiting for their shot. Brock is what they call a “Draw”, he sells tickets, I am what they call a “Fighter”, I fight who I am told to fight the way my coaches train me too. We are different people and we treat people different. To me this sport is as much about respect and honor as it is paychecks sound bites.”


Brock made the following comments recently and here are Carwin's responses:

Quote:
He hasn’t fought anybody. He’s fought Gonzaga, so I really think he’s 1-0.
“I totally agree that Gonzaga was one tough fighter. Anyone in the cage is a tough guy and deserves respect. This is one of the reasons I am looking forward to this fight.”

Quote:
He’s a tough guy and a wrestler. But he’s a Division II national champion — enough said
“I choose to go to a School that would allow me to play both sports and pursue my academic goals. I wasn’t raised to go to this program or that. I was raised in a house where sports came after the education and doing two sports meant even more work for me. I could have likely played football at any D1 college and likely would have been an All American but they would not let a full ride Football player wrestle. Just the same, I could have likely wrestled and been an All American at the D1 level but there were even fewer wrestling scholarships available and the Coaches were not interested in having big slow football players taking spots of dedicated wrestlers. Division II College really gave me the opportunity to both sports (that I loved) and embraced my academic pursuits.

"What it really comes down to is that it’s going to be a fight, not a wrestling match. We can go back and forth about wrestling credentials and mat superiority all day, but all that truly matters is that one man will remain conscious and the other will not when the dust settles in the Las Vegas desert in November."

Carwin's so well spoken and focused. I'm still entirely unsure of exactly how this fight will play out, but I really hope it ends with a victory for Shane.

Gotta agree with Nefilim here, dude is really well spoken and knows how to speak. I've been interested in this fight for quite a while. I think Brock should've fought Shane instead of Herring but I guess they wanted to pad his record*. I'm pretty positive Shane takes this by TKO, niether man is going to want this to go to a decision and I think it will end in the first, maybe early second.

*Don't get me wrong, Herring is decent as a gatekeeper, but Lesnar is quite possibly the worst match possible for him.

Call me an idiot but I hope Brock destroys this guy. You hear shit like this all the time. "aw aw the only reason I never went D1 is this and that." Or my education came first. No one has ever chose d2 if they had the chance at d1 plain and simple. I do think any one with any brains as Carwin seems to have knows there is way more opportunities in D1. Theres nothing wrong loving the sports you play and doing so at a d2 level school. DOnt claim you could of probably done this and that and all american this and that at the d1 level if you chose d2. Doesnt make any sense what so ever. I like Carwin alot but I dont buy into all the nice guy crap. Nice guys can be erogant assholes too, but in a nice sweet way.
