Shane Carwin said WHAT!?!?!?!?!?!
 
"I am sure most of you know I am not the leader of the Lesnar Fan Club. That being said, antics or not, he is OUR UFC HWT Champion. He beat a future Hall of Famer to keep that belt and he NEEDS our prayers and good thoughts right now ... Brock has a wife, kid, and friends that depend on him to make their lives better. You do not have to support Brock and his antics but you should have respect for the human side of what is happening here."

Carwin went on to say that Lesnar shouldn't lose his championship belt because of sickness.

"Talk of stripping a man of his title due to illness will set this sport back farther then anything Brock has ever said. We need our Champions healthy and defending. I know the show will go on but to be a Champion you must beat a Champion ... If you sit around bashing Brock or making fun of this because of his antics you might be the very same thing you despise. As an MMA fan, as a human be concerned that one of OUR OWN has fallen and needs our support."

Straight from yahoo.com


Shane Carwin was set to fight Brock Lesnar this weekend and couldnt due to Brocks sickness. I think it took a hell of a man to come out and say all of thes things about Brock. Especially when he calle dout fans by pointing out that bashing Brock is doing the same as what you hate. And on top of that saying he doesnt want to win the title belt unless he wins it straight from Brock. WOW!! I have always loved the guy but then to do this. Major props to Shane Carwin.

I like Carwin even more.

Hopefully Brock will be back 100% by the end of 2010/beginning of 2011 and fight the interim HW champion.

Great find mmawizkid69 but try to avoid double posting. Thanks :thumbsup:

It's pretty sad people give him props for saying something he's supposed to say. It's almost like rewarding someone for not ever going to jail. Guess it just reflects how many shit talking assholes there are in MMA.

yha so many people that dont do whats right you got to respect the ones that do.

Xerxes 11-18-2009 04:16 AM

Well he didnt have to say anything like that publicly.

So props to him for doing it.

Hammerlock2.0 11-18-2009 04:29 AM

Wait... first he bashes Brock for his antics and now he's all concerned and says people shouldn't do the exact same thing he did less than a month ago? So it was just for the show? So he's basically no better than Brock? Yay! Glad we found that out before the fight. :)

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice thing to say, but this is a case of "Do as I say, not as I do" and I don't really know what to think about Carwin.

People say and do things with the adrenaline flowing that maybe they just wouldn't say or do under other circumstances, like this. To my knowledge, Carwin hated the antics of Brock simply because he felt as if it was an insult to the sport and nature of mma. That translates into the dude has respect, period. To degrade or downplay what he said is hypocrisy in my mind. Just to reiterate, NO ONE has to come out and say anythind in regards to what they think about Brock's situation, but he did. Good stuff Carwin!!!
