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.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
