Shane Carwin Movie Score: 2 / 5
Shane Carwin is a professional Mixed Martial Arts from the United States of America who competes as a Heavyweight fighter in the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC, the premier Mixed Martial Arts promotion in the world where he has been an interim holder of the UFC Heavyweight Championship.
Carwin made his debut in Mixed Martial Arts at a relatively young age, winning all eight of his fights at that time via stoppages in the first round and went on to become the Ring of Fire Heavyweight champion before he was snapped up by the UFC. Carwin made his debut in the UFC at UFC 84 against Christian Wellisch and won the match after just one punch within 44 seconds, displaying the immense punching power that Shane Carwin boasted off, with his punch sending his opponent’s mouth piece flying across the cage.
Carwin was given a shot at Cain Velasquez with a shot at the UFC Heavyweight Championship on the line but after the UFC decided to hand him the shot at the title anyway, Brock Lesnar, the reigning champion pulled out of the fight citing illness and he was pitted against another former UFC Heavyweight champion with the interim belt of the UFC Heavyweight Championship on the line. Carwin won the match via knockout to take the interim belt and when he finally got the chance to square up against Lesnar for the unification bout, he was blown away by the champion.
Since then, Shane Carwin has become more or less of a bit part fighter in the UFC, getting sporadic chances at fighting in the UFC. His professional record of 12 wins out 14 is one of the most impressive in the UFC at the moment but the fact that he is an underdog has gone very much against him.
