UFC Quick Quote: Shane Carwin ready for Cain Velasquez at UFC 104

"The scouting report on Cain is that he is well rounded and has an unlimited gas tank. He is an aggressive fighter who posses a ton of skill. Cain is a legitimate contender and I hope that winner gets a shot. I think my striking is an advantage but honestly you never know until you are in the cage. A good example was when Gabe took me down, we had drilled that situation so many times that it was like second nature getting back to my feet. You kind of go on auto pilot when the cage door closes. That is why a lot of guys say pre-fight 'I am going to stand and bang' and they’re shot as soon as a single leg happens. You’re not thinking about your interviews or promises made to your fans. Your going over your game plan and looking for those situations your coaches told you would be there."

– Undefeated heavyweight behemoth Shane Carwin talks to Five Ounces of Pain about his preparations for fellow rising heavyweight prospect Cain Velasquez, who "The Engineer" will face at UFC 104 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on October 24. With quick wins over Gabriel Gonzaga as well as Christian Wellisch and Neil Wain under the UFC banner, Carwin – who still works full-time for the North Weld County Water District in Colorado — is now seemingly on the brink of a title shot. The only thing standing in his way is the equally talented wrestler out of AKA -- who has his own plans for securing a future heavyweight title shot.
