Shane Carwin, the bruising former UFC interim heavyweight champion, is officially on the comeback trail.

Following a lengthy recovery from back surgery, Carwin, 37, announced Wednesday he was cleared for contact and issued a request for UFC officials to slot him into a fight later this year.

"I informed UFC Matchmaker (Joe Silva) that I would like to fight in early fall 2012," Carwin wrote on his website. "I would like to be able to fight every three or four months. Barring injury I intend to leave the UFC octagon and head back to the Grudge Training Center to continue the climb."

Man, he really took a beating against JDS. Here's to hoping for a strong octagon return!

WAR CARWIN, but sadly I think the JDS fight will prove to be the beginning of a real downslide to his career. That fight was a soultaker

I was thinking Bigfoot would be a better fight....lets see what the UFC does. Lots of good possibilities.

No need for Carwin to come back only to break his hand on that dude‘s head. Nelson was supposed to fight Bigfoot at one point. Id like to see that happen.

It looks like Hunt and Carwin may be returning at the same time. Is anyone thinking what I'm thinking? I'm getting goose bumps right now.

That works for me. So far you and Budge have come up with his first two fights back as far as I'm concerned.
