Hell yes. I've been waiting for this fight for a long time. Is it possible for this fight to make it out of the first round?! That's the only thing that sucks about paying $55. You just know the main event is going to last like two minutes...but damn it's going to be an exciting two minutes.

IF it goes down at UFC 106 then I imagine it lasting a couple of rounds for sure...2 big wrestlers, Lesnar's GNP wasn't so vicious that he was able to finish Mir all that quickly so I imagine that if Carwin gets into that position he could actually withstand the punishment. Now what is left to be unseen is how Brock would handle being on the recieving end of a GNP.....I imagine a really decent match. Not sure who I would pick.

no way Brock gets on the recieving end of GnP unless he gets dropped and Shane pounces....otherwise CArwin needs to just knock him out on his feet....I don't believe Shane is anywhere near the wrestler Brock is and he was getting taken down by Gonzaga...If he can keep it standing then I think CArwin has a decent chance...otherwise its Brock

i believe it cause it makes alot of sense, they realise Brock would be out of action for too long,so they changed it so he can fight again this year, winner will fight Velasquez

The one thing that would make it legit to me is Carwin likes 3 months' notice before a fight. According to the schedule, 106 would be, from today, roughly 3 months away. And I do think Cain needs one more fight before his shot.

Lucky for Cane. He needs more time to refine his game. If Cheick Kongo could rock him a couple times, it makes sense that Carwin would KO him. If Cain could adopt a more elusive standup, that mixed with good TD's might allow him to beat Carwin. I don't think he'll ever beat Lesnar though. IMO he's very similar but genetically inferior

this topic is starting t pick up steam so it must be real

for one i don't know why the push for it when u have

silva vs hendo and penn vs sanchez instead of this

and for me personnally this is a win/lose scenario for me

lose as in the co main event is gone for oct in la
no worthy co main event now who is cain gonna fight now?? only person is herring, or they push back cain and quckly go with a new co main event


and win scenario cause with brock fighting in nov and dec in memphis getting rampage vs evans and kongo vs mir,

the year end event will have 3 options for main event being that of
penn vs sanchez, gsp vs swick/kammpman winner, and silva vs hendo or nate/damian winner

with it being year end, best bet is 2 title fights on a card, my guess is gsp vs swick/kammpman won't be that much of a draw it ain't alves or penn lesser none names could damper things
has to be gsp fight plus one of the other ones while the 3rd title fight goes for superbowl weekend

You mean the UFC doesnt want to make Ortiz vs Coleman the main event for 106?

Carwin R2 tko.

As for Cain have him fight Herring.

I'm surprised there are so many people taking Carwin in this... I want him to win, but honestly...do you think he will/can avoid Brocks takedowns and quickness? lets face it, Carwin has not faced the competetion that Lesnar has, i mean Herring, Couture, Mir, Mir? Carwin was rocked by Gonzaga and was very close to losing that fight had Gonzaga went in for the kill...

I'm picking Brock by TKO in the late 2nd.

This is a good move. People want to see Brock fight someone his size and Carwin is the man for the job! Can't wait for this!

It should be an exciting fight. We might finally get to see how tough Brocks chin is. If Brock gets in trouble on his feet look for him to take Carwin down at will. That’s if this fight happens???

I really don't see Carwin winning this fight unless he can keep it standing and I don't see that happening. Lesnar is just to quick. Carwin will not realize Brocks quickness and get taken down at will. I see this being a 3rd round TKO by GnP.
