    Will he ever return? What a talent that man was... shame he couldn't get the belt. Not a stretch to call him the heaviest puncher in MMA history. I could see him doing well in the current state of HW

    No. He hinted that he wouldn't mind rematch with Lesnar though, so if Lesnar returns to the UFC, expect Carwin to come out.

    Nope. Too old and also he never really needed to fight, since besides fighting, he still was at his 8 hour job.

    Damn and he's already 40.. sucks that there won't be a HW with that kinda power anytime soon. I still remember Carwin vs Lesnar.. crazy how the HW division has fallen

    The good old days with Brock & Carwin. Between them scared a raft of chubby undersized HW's where they belonged at LHW.

    Carwin retirement really sucked. Dude showed insane heart against JDS. His punching power is ridiculous too. Dude always put on exciting fights. I doubt he'll be back though. Sucks.

    apparently his neck is so bad that surgery literally did nothing for it. i think he had pertruding discs that are so damaged beyond repair.

    even if he wanted to come back he cant physically. such a shame
