He is nowhere near the caliber wrestler lesnar is and nowhere near as athletic. The combined recoed of peoples hes face is under 500. He is a can opener until proven otherwise

Also his striking isn that good, he was getting tagged by neil wain in his last fight which forced him to take it it to the ground. Wain is hardly an elite striker

It is a completely different level of competition. How many D2 wrestlers are asked to join the U.S. Olympic team? I'm sure that answer is zero.

Just watched the rerun of the weigh-ins last night. Carwin weighed in at 259.5. They have him billed at 265. Guess he is smaller than Brock, except maybe his glove size. Big ass dude though. I'm pumped for this fight!

Carwin crushes Gonzaga. Took me three times to type as booze has kicked in.
