Default Brock vs Carwin in the works for UFC 106

Rumors are circulating around some sites about this fight being close to signed. This would put the fight with Cain and Carwin on ice till further down the road.

Shane Carwin Fan Community - Shane Carwin Fan Community

"Cain Velasquez will no longer be fighting Shane Carwin at UFC 104 for the opportunity to challenge Brock Lesnar due to sustaining an injury. Carwin will instead face Lesnar for the UFC Heavyweight Championship at UFC 106 in November. It is unknown who or when Velasquez will fight next."

If this should happen it will be on e heck of a fight. Carwin has good size and strength and good wrestling and strikes too. I see them very evenly matched but would give the edge to Brock Lesnar.

This is a fight that would definately keep me on the edhe of my seat.

I hope this is true (not the part about Cain being injured, that sucks). I think Carwin vs Lesnar would be a good fight.

I thought Carwin, Couture and old Big Nog had the best shot at Lesnar.

Cain is a great wrestler but doesn't have the size to compete with Brocks wrestling.
