Props to http://www.shane-carwin.com/forum/topics/interview-questions-fromQuestion: How do you tackle this challenge of defending Lesnar's lighting fast takedowns?
Shane: Sprawl and Brawl or just get up and strike.
Question: Who do you train your wrestling with to mimic the size of brock?
Shane: We have some great wresters at UNC and guys like Marquart, Schaub, Amal Easton, Ron Waterman help push me.
Question: How do you defend against Brock using his weight to lay on you? like he does with all his other fights.
Shane: We are pretty similar in size. Around fight night we will both be about 280 pounds. He is fast and the speed is a bigger issue then the size. He has out weighed most of his opponents in the past but he will not on this night.
Question: Since lesnar is gonna be the biggest guy you have faced and that he has just alittle bit more size then you do, do you think that he will have the edge if it goes to the ground??
Shane: He has the edge in Wrestling I think I have the edge everywhere else.
I like how he knows what his advantages and weaknesses are and he's honest about it. This guy is planning on coming in big for this fight! Fireworks baby!
