That's the near-guarantee made by Shane Carwin on ESPN's SportsCenter earlier today ahead of UFC 116's main event. "I'm not concerned at all (about conditioning), we have a great training camp and my coaches have prepared me for an all-out war. The stand-up game has become my passion. [I know] Brock is gonna come back 100-percent and I'm excited to get in the cage against him. You're looking at the top two heavyweights in the world. He's got the real belt and I'm coming after it Saturday. You're going to see Brock Lesnar knocked out on the canvas."

How is Carwin able to train and still hold a steady 40 hour job, it boggles my mind, I'm a civil engineer the same as Carwin, I don't work for a water district like he does, but still, I work 12 hours a day sometimes 7 days a week. Must be nice, I wonder if they are hiring.

I change my mind about who will win this fight, every 3 minutes. I think Lesnar is gonna win, but I think its hard to bet against Carwin being able to land 1 punch, which is all he needs.

Gonzaga can actually strike? Lesnar hasn't shown knockout power with his punches. Carwin has. I'm pretty sure that Carwin can EASILY knock out anyone in the UFC with his shots.

Not only has Brock never shown knockout power his chin has never been tested. Carwin will test it on Saturday, and I'm banking on him folding like a lawn chair.

i'm so torn on how to pick. lately it doens't seem to matter whether I go for the guy everyone expects to win or the under dog...i'm wrong & then w/this one...so many unknowns on these 2 guys. i'm pretty hype and don't really care who wins. at the moment my wagers on carwin and my picks on brock

Nothing would warm my heart more than to see Brock Lesnar stiff on the canvas with his eyes rolled back.

In all reality this fight could end in under 20 seconds with Carwin winning by KO. Not a very exciting prospect to say the least. I am not a Lesnar fan but I actually hope he takes Carwin down...pins him on his back or belly and beats the tar out of him! It is simple...if Carwin hits him good...Brock will more than likely go down. If Brock can get Carwin down and keep him down Brock wins by TKO. What if Carwin takes Brock down though? Carwin by TKO? Can he keep Brock down? One thing is for sure...Lesnar has to avoid getting hit...period. I hope it lives up to the hype...but like I said to begin with...it could be over in 20 seconds.

One thing about Carwin people seem to be forgetting is that if he gets top position on you then you're F'd. Joe Rogan said his quote about him feeling the GnP through the floor that one day but the truth is Carwin had been gaining top position and KTFO'ing people like that long before that match ever took place.

I honestly feel like Carwin's wrestling is being grossly underrated by a lot of fans. He built a career on securing dominant position and GnP'ing his way to victory. Granted he's never faced a wrestler of Brock's caliber, but to insinuate that his only shot at the W is by standing KO is a gross misunderstanding of what makes Shane Carwin the fighter he is.

Also- Gabe Gonzaga, despite his unwillingness to take opponents down, is one of the most dominant top position BJJ players out there. Carwin got back up with Gonzaga on top of him so I have faith that Lesnar holding him down isn't going to be quite as easy as some might think. Although I will admit Lesnar seems to have incredibly agile hips on top.
