Default Shane Carwin's First Test

Was just going through the UFC events and saw that UFC 96 will have Shane Carwin facing Gabriel Gonzaga. I'm very interested in seeing this fight as Carwin is 10-0 without facing tremendous talent, but has really destroyed his opponents. It'll be interesting to see how well he will do against Zags.

Interesting matchup. I wonder if Zags, jits will neutralize Carwin's wrestling. The standup will be pretty interesting too.

I will always hold a grudge against Zaga for what he did to Crocop.
Randy will lay down the perfect gameplan to beat his @$$.
I'm going with Carwin vis 2nd rd TKO!

I think it depends on which GG shows up on fight night. 3 matches that I'm pumped up for(GG v. Carwin,lyota v. Thiago, and BJ v. GSP)..I'll be rootin for GG even though he KO'd my boy CC.

Yeah, I was kinda thinking the same thing. I'm not too excited about any of the upcoming PPV matchups except GSP/Penn, Machida/Silva, Stevenson/Sanchez, and Gonzaga/Carwin.

It's time to see if Carwin is the real deal or not. If he gets by Gonzaga, I'd say expect to see him get 2 more big matchups and if he wins, get a shot at Brock (yes, because Brock will still be the champ by that time)

It's the main event for UFC 93. I love the fight, but hardly a main event for a PPV in my opinion. I think I'll wait until I find it for free on a torrent search, lol
