Lesnar vs Carwin

14 posts in this topic

I just heard about the Brock Lesnar vs Shane Carwin fight coming up in November. Im looking forward to it, hopefully Carwin will give Lesnar a run for his money. What does everyone think?

Both big tough dudes, but Lesnar is a freak of nature. If he's smart and doesn't try to stand up and brawl he'll win. If he's as dumb as everyone thinks he is, he'll stand up and scrap and get caught on the chin by someone who has bigger hands than he does like his Carwin!

i give carwin a punchers chance is about it...carwin has fought all "super cans" except gonzaga...which he was rocked by punches...but in a flurry happened to get the shot in and finish...

carwin is much slower & far less the athlete then brock...carwins cardio will be very suspect as well...

i would of liked to see carwin vs cain...but by the UFC cancelling that match...gives another potential HW challenger with cain down the road if he wins to fight brock...otherwise if carwin would of beat cain...cain goes to the bottom of the pile...

I think this fight will be similar to the Lesnar/Herring fight. Brock will take him down and control him with his wrestling ability and just pound him. If Carwin can keep it on his feet he has a punchers chance but Brock is so powerful and fast I think he will be able to get him to the ground.

I tend to agree with Hitman54. It seems all of Brocks fights end with a ground and pound. Unfortunetely it will probably end the same for Carwin. Although all its gonna take with Brock eventually is to get caught with a lucky blow. shocked

WHAT ABOUT THAT RUSSIAN DUDE? I THOUGHT THAT ONE WAS ALREADY BEING HYPED. MAYBE DANA WHITE COULDN'T SIGN HIM OR SOMETHING? I WAS ALREADY PICTURING THE ONE ROCKY MOVIE WHERE HE FIGHTS DURAGO OR WHATEVER. THAT COULD HAVE BEEN THEIR BEST STORYLINE EVER!

The Russian signed with another organization that the Russian is sponsored by. It's all about the money!

No it wasnt about the money Dana offered him more money. It was the fact that White wouldnt let Fedors manager co-promote events with them as M-1 Global i think is the company he has. White said he can have all the logos on his gear but they wont co-promote with M-1

Lesnars bread and butter is the ground and pound. He's just getting better at it as well as other aspects of the fight game. Carwin does have a punchers chance, but I'm guessing Carwin will be laying on his back taking a beating.

I've only seen Carwin fight 1 or 2 times and it didn't look like he was afraid to punch. A big guy that isn't afraid to punch and throws hands with bad intentions, sometimes good things happen?

Unfortunately, facing him will be another big guy that isn't afraid to punch and moves like a cat. Any hesitation on Carwins part will lead to an early shower for him! (And maybe a few stitches?)

Carwin is quite an athelete as well. In college he was a Div 2 wresting champ and runner up twice. He was also an all american in football. I think these guys match up pretty good.

I will give Carwin the credit he deserves. He was a good wrestler in DIVISION 2. Put Lesnar in Division 2 in his college days and he goes undefeated every year. This will be no contest. Carwin throws a nasty punch, but Brock won't let it happen. I can see Brock shooting in on Carwin, taking him down to the mat, and then proceed to make his face into hamburger patties. Just ask Mir who said he was in the best shape of his life, and more prepared then ever to face Brock. He ended up looking like he just sat there and let Brock punch at will(he pretty much did anyway). You can be all sorts of big, but when it comes down to technique and execution, I think Brock has a HUGE upper hand. I remember when UFC first began and they had no weight divisions. Royce Gracie TORE through everyone despite being one of the smallest men in the UFC.

There's big, and then there's Brock. Part of me feelts there should almost be a superheavy weight division.

    •   It's hard not to lump them (Koch Bros) in with the Tea party as they spent millions supporting it and effectively, with some others, namely big tobacco, created the Tea party.      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brendan-demelle/study-confirms-tea-party-_b_2663125.html  
    • I got an electronic sliding deadbolt on the garage and the house. It is the BEST THING EVER!!!! just push in 4 number and it opens up without any other input. To lock, you just push one button. I think maybe Quickset brand or something like that. I liekd it more than Schlage model.   My Mom had one that you put in the 4 digit combo and then have to turn a knob. Still nice, but the auto one is awesome.   It beeps for unsuccessful, and it willgive a red (rather than green) light and also a beepbeepbeep when the batteries get low. Pretty easy and forgiving to let you know when to change them. I have not had them go totally out on me yet in about 5 years or more, but I change them usually after about a week of beepbeepbeeping  I would guess I change them 1-2 times a year, more in the garage as it gets locked and unlocked more.   Seriously, best thing ever. I never carry keys anymore, never. I leave keys right in the vehicles in the garage, dont' bother bringing them into the house anymore. At the cabin I leave keys right in vehicles as well.
    • You do know Uncle Bengahzi........that burns are covered by the ACA.
    •   The best system is one where consumers are left with a choice, so yes. I would agree.
    •   In other words, officer duffy, and the rest of the lib - tard nation's got nothing...     Lolololo.....

    • Nothing is going to be perfect but right now we pay way more for healthcare than anyone else, whatever we are doing is only lining the pockets of the industry and worse yet we are forced to pay. Let me know where it says in the constitution we have the right to be forced into paying high healthcare premiums, it doesn't exactly sound like America the free.

      Maybe someday I will research healthcare and write a report for you but I don't have the time right now. As I see it cutting out the middle man is good for 320+ millions Americans vs a tiny fraction of health insurance industry. We need to stop catering to tiny fractions of people for monetary gain and look at the big picture.
    • Will do.  We were just up there for ice fishing on Bass. First the drizzle and rain came, then the wind blew us all the way home.  We did get in some good sight fishing for bass though. 3-5 fow on the edge of reeds.  Real cool to see the bass come in and take your lure that shallow.  We got a couple of 18" +.

    • Del is that you shooting down any kind of change again? It can happen as soon as we decide we need to start doing what is in the best interests of the voters instead of what is right for some small segment of the economy. The politicians fear losing their jobs more than they fear these special interest groups. Even the far right has to see that letting the insurance industry have it's way and even worse force people to sign up for this stuff is a total crock. Ya ya we could go to a free market and let the market decide but I don't even know if we have free markets when it comes to big $$$ industries. They get what they want and we are forced to pay, not exactly a free market. Now if we could find a way to get there that would be great but there is way to much influence to let that happen.
    •   I think the countries in Europe that have systems that work still have insurance companies.   Why don't you research how it works in Germany and Switzerland, and get back to us with a report.    The problem with single payer is that, as we see with medicaid, that the government is tempted to reimburse at too low a level to sustain the providers.   Even the Brits seem to have a private system with insurance that runs in parallel with the government providers.    As for government providers in this country, the VA is an example.
