NEW YORK -- When the UFC made its triumphant entrance into New York with one of its biggest cards of the year, one fighter was notoriously absent, co-main event heavyweight Shane Carwin.

While UFC President Dana White didn't inform the fans or media at Radio City Music Hall why Carwin was missing, only saying that he might arrive before the finish of the pre-fight press conference, MMA Fighting has learned that Carwin was absent due to finalizing his medical licensing paperwork.

I knew there would be a good reason, of course Dana has to be a dick about it

I read the headline to this article and was thinking that Carwin was going to have to pull out too, then I really was going to be pissed about this card.

I'm glad that that is not the case.

Damn man that headline had me worried. At least it isn't anything serious. Can't wait to see Carwin smash Frank Mur

Care to explain just how he was supposedly being a dick about it?
