Shane Carwin (8-0) will make his Octagon debut against Christian Wellisch (8-3) at UFC 84: “Ill Will” at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 24, according to multiple reports.

Carwin — a Western State College NCAA Division II national wrestling champion and two-time football All-American — is a top heavyweight prospect who has gone undefeated in smaller promotions with the guidance of veterans such as Ron Waterman and Nate Marquardt.

He’s an extremely athletic fighter who has drawn comparisons to Brock Lesnar. Carwin, however, has more mixed martial arts experience. In fact, he has finished all of his opponents in the first round with a mix of knockouts and submissions.

If he can replicate those results inside the Octagon … watch out. Carwin appears to have some serious potential to make waves in a division that sorely needs it.

Wellisch is a law school student who has won two of his three fights with the UFC. He most recently submitted Scott Junk with a heel hook at UFC 76: “Knockout” back in September 2007. He also earned a unanimous decision over Anthony Perosh at UFC 66: “Liddell vs. Ortiz II” back in December 2006.

This is an old rumored fight isnt it? been on mmaweekly for a while anyway

Wellisch is the HW sleeper, he is the best BJJ guy behind Big Nog and Mir and i like him to get the sub win here

i think yall need to watch carwin's HL he could be the slampage of the HW division, he's also got good hands, that being said wellisch could catch a sub, carwin's probably too strong and probably gets a TKO

I like Carwin and I think that him being as big as he is, he could try and KO everyone, but he is smart , and still uses the subs to get wins.

Haven't seen anything on Carwin either. I guess I'll have to go to Youtube and find a HL package on him.
