    I'm a little intoxicated right now and if I sound like an ass, I apologize but man Brock is a horrible boxer and striker in general....Not taking anything away from Shane, he's got massive power but atrocious technique. IF Carwin can tool him standing, imagine what would have happened if a Klitschko brother tagged his chin.......OUCH!!!!!!!!! ANyways continue on

    New and exciting, im guessing the reason is he's not a boxer. It's no secret that Lesnar is the champ because of his wrestling. But it was hilarious how Lesnar reacted when he got tagged by that uppercut, it was like he's never been hit before.

    And Klitschko would get taken down fast, Klitschko with some wrestling training would be a scary sight in MMA though.

    The top UFC heavyweight is also a terrible basketball player!! Not to take anything away from him, he's got good size but atrocious hops! If Lebron played Lesnar in basketball, Lebron would tool Lesnar!!

    I'm just kidding with you btw. It's late and I'm bored.

    Of course, I don't deny that I'm just saying if either Wlad or Vit was magically transformed into Shane's body when he landed that uppercut, it would have good night for Brock........you're right though a Klitschko bro with TDD is a scary thought in MMA.

    Every UFC PPV or TUF that comes along I get less and less excited about, yet I still feel more and more let down after every event.

    Accuracy of striking is so bad even when opponents are clearly hurt.

    Carwin punched himself out after 5 minutes like he was a 40 year old Sugar Shane.

    That was just atrocious from both guys.

    I don't know how MMA fans can boast about fights like this with a straight face.

    Brock was getting tagged at will by a slow as hell but powerful Carwin and Carwin can't fight for more than fucking 5 minutes without gassing and yet this was the biggest HW fight in MMA history?

    As I keep saying, can you imagine Smokin' Joe gassed out after 2 rounds during the Thrilla in Manila?

    May be Carwin figured he didn't need to make much of an effort regarding his cardio because his base pay was 40k.

    Funny how no MMA fans bring this up.

    Embarrassed? You should thank your lucky stars if you even see another big HW fight in Boxing.

    This wasnt really a big HW fight. It was marketed that way but thats because there are a ton of gullible MMA fans who eat up the UFC product. But in reality, it featured two extremely raw fighters who have a ton of question marks.

    And it really didnt answer any questions. The only thing I got from this fight was that Carwin has a miserable gas tank and Brock has the boxing ability of a 6 year old elementary school girl.

    I really don't get it....
    That was an ugly, boring fight.

    Technique, technique, technique.....
    blah blah blah blah.

    What I saw there was no different than occasional bar fight.
    The quality of that fight is on par with sloppy fights.
    If mma fans want that (and I know there are alot that look down on that type of fight) than have it.
    Aside from the increased viewership amongst jocks and frat boys.... I'm quite content in not having them making up the ranks of boxing fans.

    Are you saying that there won't be a big HW fight in boxing?

    Yeah exactly, it was just a slopfest.

    I really don't understand how this was marketed as the biggest HW fight ever (and it probably was in terms of hype though not the skills compared to CC vs Fedor) and then you see one guy start hyperventilating 3 mins in.

    He could barely stand in round 2 and had no defense for the takedown.

    If it was some undercard fight then it's one thing but that was the huge main event, earlier on the same card you saw Akiyama gassed out also.

    If nothing else....
    Carwins performance should at least make Mariusz P feel alot better.

    it wasn't a big HW fight, just dana hyping it up to be bigger than it is.. they are both new to the sport, what have they had 19 fights between them?#

    and no way should brock be ranked #1 HW

    this doesn't even compare to fedor/nog, fedor/cro cop, timmeh/randy

    haha damn right.

    Funny the same guys who shit on Mariusz are making all sorts of excuses for Carwin in my thread in the heavys about MMA fighters cardio saying how grappling is so much more tiring than Boxing (even though Carwin mostly just threw punches).

    You had some wrestling training you think that's a valid excuse for gassing 3 mins in?

    Not in the foreseeable future. You can't criticize HW mma fighters when Boxing hasn't had a HW fight that anyone gave a shit about in years.
