Carwin vs. Valasquez at UFC 104
I see Carwin winning this. Seems like a great fight with two evenly-matched, strong wrestlers on a similar career trajectory
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."
"Be of good comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man! We shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out."
