I was thinking the same thing...too bad Tim can't come back to the UFC. I don't think he should have been cut in the first place.

Carwin's a great wrestler, but Division I vs. Division II is no comparison in skills or opponents faced.

Carwin has a larger fist than Brock, wearing 5xl gloves vs. Brock's 4xl. Either one could throw the right punch and KO the other.

I think Carwin got a bit exposed by Gonzaga in the fight. Zag is FAR from the wrestler Brock is and was able to take down Carwin. The difference is, Brock would be able to keep him down unlike Zag.

I'd still like to see it though.

FYI, Division II is the intermediate-level of competition in the NCAA. Let me put it like this. I went to college at Northwest Missouri State University, a division II school. 2 of those years, we were national champions in football. We had 4 guys try for the pros, with 1 person making it - he held a clipboard for the QB of the AZ Cardinals. Division II is NO comparision for D1 in the level of competition faced in ANY sport, period.

Carwin is really cool. I would love to see to see him KO Brock. Brock can probably outwrestle him but the striking goes to Carwin.

Brock was tagged by both Randy and Mir. If Carwin puts his glove on his face I could see him getting the win.

Tough fight for Carwin.

Out of Carwin and Cain though Carwin has the better shot stylistically.

Comparing wrestling in D1 and D2 is a little different than comparing football. I have known a lot of good, and outstanding wrestlers that have gone division 2 because of location, size of school, and scholarship money. I do agree the best of the best and the majority of the best wrestlers are in D1, but I wouldn't discount fighter "A" because he was a division 2 wrestler. South Dakota will never beat Minnesota, or Iowa, but they will probably have one or two wrestler that will win matches against their D1 opponents.

GSP never wrestled competitively in his life, but has some of the best takedowns in the UFC.

With the speed hat Brock has its doubtful Carwin will be on his feet long enough to connect...Cain...is a mystery yet...could prove really dangerous...but can he handle a beast like Brock?
