The only chance Carwin has against Brock is to KO him standing. A "punchers chance" in MMA is about 50/50 imo
. Carwin has poor striking at best, though be it, insane punching power.
I can almost see where Carwin is going with all this. Great power in his hands and probably wants to be known as a KO artist. He already has the wrestling BUT
it will take him years to become even a decent mma striker. MMA striking obviously is difficult to become proficient at. Lots of striking martial arts out there to master. Again; Carwin's striking is sub-par. I dont see enough head movement and foot work (and lots more) to even call em a good Boxer.
Having said all this (thanks for listening
) I want Carwin to put Brock to sleep with a nice strait right or a clean right hook.
But I dont see that happening. Brock is too smart to get into a punching exchange with Carwin. Both deffinitly have brutal KO power and Carwin is more polished in that dept.
Brock probably walks around close to 300lbs and cuts all that weight to make 265. Carwin looks to be a more natural 265 pounder. Come fight night Brock will be alot bigger and maybe even stronger than Carwin...
