UFC 89 Video: Shane Carwin on Neil Wain, Heavyweight Title Prospects

Heavyweight Shane Carwin, who will fight Neil Wain on Saturday at UFC 89, talks about his preparation and his goals for the future:

The 6-foot-3, 265-pound Carwin was an NCAA Division II wrestling champion and is now 9-0 in his professional mixed martial arts career. He says in the video that he's dreaming about being the UFC heavyweight champion.

"That's the next dream to come true is to be able to get that shot, and when that comes I'll worry about that then, but right now I'll take advantage of the time that I have to keep on improving myself."

For now, Carwin is, in addition to getting ready to fight Wain, sparring with Randy Couture to help Couture get ready for Brock Lesnar, who like Carwin is an enormous former college wrestler. I could definitely see Carwin being a future heavyweight champ; he has all the physical tools.

As of the last I heard, UFC is not planning to show the Carwin-Wain fight on the tape delay Spike TV broadcast Saturday night, but I hope they find time for it. Carwin is the kind of fighter that every fan should get to see.
