Default Carwin vs. Valasquez at UFC 104

http://mmajunkie.com/news/15377/shan...-on-oct-24.mma

Quote:
A heavyweight contest between top undefeated prospects Shane Carwin (11-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Cain Velasquez (6-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) is currently in the works for UFC 104.

If finalized, the bout would likely feature on the main card of the Oct. 24 pay-per-view event, which will take place at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Sources close to the bout, which was first reported by MMAMadness.com, have confirmed to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Carwin has verbally accepted the contest, while Velasquez is expected to follow suit.

Carwin also confirmed his participation in the contest with a post on his Twitter account.

"Looks like I'll be fighting Oct. 24 in Los Angeles," Carwin stated. "Excited to know."
I see Carwin winning this. Seems like a great fight with two evenly-matched, strong wrestlers on a similar career trajectory

Carwin wins this. wrestling is solid enough to handle Cain. and his striking is definitely better.

thats why he got cracked by gonzaga right?... Shane has power but he leaves himeslf open to get hit... got lit up a little in the wain fight too.... I agree though cain better not leave himself open to get hit like he did versus kongo but carwin isnt half the striker Kongo is.

so did Cro Cop everyone gets hit , except for Machida. and Gonzaga went to sleep vs Carwin. Carwin isn't the best striker in the world but Cain has nothing standing and will be put to rest at UFC 104.

Yeah, I thought that was crazy! Carwin was backpedaling when he threw the punch and it was a straight arm punch, just amazing!

I think cain is too green for Carwin.

He needs more work on his standup. Cain's wrestling is awesome but I see Carwin getting the KO.

Cain is just on another level of wrestling and I see him takeing him down but Carwin is like lesner that it dosent matter if you won the first two rounds one right hand will end it.
