Following recent back surgery, Shane Carwin (12-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) expects to make his return to the cage in June at UFC 131.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) first reported the news on Monday, and Carwin confirmed the tentative booking on his official website, www.shane-carwin.com.

In the update, Carwin also confirmed he had been approached about fighting "The Ultimate Fighter 10" winner Roy Nelson before he ultimately was scheduled for a meeting with Frank Mir at UFC 130.

Officials hope to finalize plans for UFC 131 this week. The show is tentatively planned for June 11 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. As MMAjunkie.com reported on Monday, Carwin is expected to play a prominent role in the pay-per-view event.

Nelson would have to take a couple bricks to the head if he plans on winning this one but he showed his chin against Dos Santos and hopefully it would do him well again.

Carwin isn't fighting Nelson. It says in the article that the fight was planned but the UFC had other plans for Nelson and took him out of the fight. Carwin doesn't have an official opponent.
