Don't laugh, it's a title the Interim UFC Heavyweight Champion takes seriously...but it seems he's taken some lessons from the "real" champ. "Beating Brock does not make you Brock. I will still need to insult most of the fighters in my division, flip off the fans, insult the biggest sponsors the UFC has and then and only then will I renegotiate with Zuffa. Dana and Lorenzo have taken good care of my family and I. They have given us more than they are obligated to and we are happy. My manager always says it is not about making money when you fight but to make money when you are not fighting. We really do not have our hands out for anything more – if it comes we will take it and smile. I love fighting for the UFC and for me I choose to do this, I do not have to fight to survive. I am honored to be working for the UFC and representing them in the 'fake' champions category."

Reading things like this just make me happy. I am glad we have people like this in the mix. Hopefully he will continue strong and not fall of the horse ^_^.

How do you not like Carwin, he's a huge fighter with awesome skills and a funny sense of humor.

Not everyone has a great job waiting for them so they have to want. But despite that this is pure class. Too bad he"s like 35.
