Not sure if that is correct but if it is, it may be what we see if Carwin can land on Brock.
I will be rooting for brock in this one, although I like Carwin as well. I think Mir tested Brock's chin with those consecutive knees and a couple of hooks to the head. It appeared brock was a little stunned but he shook that off rather quickly. I believe Brock's speed and size will be the difference in this fight.
I watched the shots he took from Mir and none were nice and clean like the one`s Carwin took from GG(lets face it Mir is no GG when it comes to stand up)......so the jury is still outs as to the stability of Lesnars chin.
.....another aspect, is that I think Carwin is just as fast and strong as Brock with less emotional demons.
