    Shane Carwin: Full-Time Engineer, Undefeated UFC Heavyweight - MMA Fighting

    Cliffs: Married, has a kid, pioneer of the sport, most impressive record streak of 1st round KOs ever, yes has not one but TWO degrees and worked as a full time ufc fighter and full time engineer at the same time.





    EDIT: Sage quit his engineering studies after one ufc fight, Uriah Hall quit his electric engineering degree just to compete at world level in bjj. there's a thread now about habib finishing some economic diploma after retiring as if that's a big deal.

    Shane finished all that shit while he has kids. he is above us, and we are not worthy.

    Prime Carwin was one of the most entertaining fighters to watch. Just straight up built different than most humans. More neanderthal than human or something. All the steroids in the world can’t make someone not like him like that.

    Neanderthal? I would say he's way more evolved than an average human looking at the content in the op

    Yeah it's crazy he was a full-time engineer while he was competing. It's really too bad he couldn't put Brock away.

    He was also the greatest height-cutter ever.

    It's so unfortunate he got into mma a bit late and didn't had a full career. Dude was a freak of nature for sure.

    Gone too soon, that was a monster of a man for sure.

    Also the fight with Lesnar was rigged any sane referee stops that fight. Dana didn't want his cash cow to get TKOd.

    I’m talking about his physical gifts. Nothing I said takes away from his intelligence.

    His power is so overrated

    He hit Brock 1000 times without finishing him, and Brock is KNOWN for not being able to take a punch

    He has 0 one-punch KO's

    Oh for sure.
    Bruh, people don't understand how fucking gifted he was in that department.
    literally his entire career before the last two losses was all first round finishes, and he started at such an old age for the sport as well.

    Even NNganough didn't pull that off, a bunch of bums made it to the second round with him starting out.

    Imagine if shane only focussed on mma, and started young, and with today's advancements in training. dear allah ...

    I remember the Carwin Lesnar fight. If Carwin didn't run out of gas in Round 1 things would be so different now, a completely different chain of events in the UFC. Butterfly effect shit.

    Brock didn't know how to take a punch, evident in him responding by immediately dropping, Carwin also never hit Brock cleanly.
